Mike Posner has finally unveiled the music video for his Big Sean-assisted single, “Top of the World”.
The video starts off with Mike reading an old quote he penned in his notebook pre-fame. “My smiles don’t result from good things,” he says in a voice-over. “They result in good things … I don’t even remember writing it.”
After his message, the Jon Jon Augustavo-directed video finds the 25-year-old with longtime friend, Big Sean, standing at the 50-yard line at Ford Field – home of the Detroit Lions. As well as more scenes shot at Joe Louis Arena – home of the Detroit Red Wings, Comerica Park – home of the Detroit Tigers, and The Palace of Auburn Hills – home of the Detroit Pistons. The video includes cameos by professional athletes Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings, and Nate Burleson of the Detroit Lions.
The celebratory visual also includes shots at Mike’s alma mater, Wylie E. Groves High School and Bingham Farms Elementary School, a cameo from his parents, sister Emily, manager Patrick Cline, assistant Matthew Chatigny, the Finally Famous crew, actress Cassie Scerbo, and Diplo, who produced the track alongside Benny Blanco.
“Top of the World,” a song about setting high goals, is the introductory single off his upcoming sophomore album, PAGES, due out in 2014. Purchase “Top of the World” on iTunes.
What does everyone think about the new video? Personally, I LOVE IT and I think it’s by far his best music video he’s ever filmed for a single. Congrats to everyone involved in the making of the video, especially the director, Jon Jon Augustavo. Well done, everyone! 🙂
