Just in time for winter, Wyclef Jean drops his “I Swear” video with Young Thug, which features beach scenes, bikinis and a crime thriller plot line.
In the clip, Wyclef and Young Thug are attending a swimwear-themed fashion show on the beach when Wyclef gets a phone call from “Sweetest Girl.”
He’s a secret agent and his mission is to save the swim suit designer (Young Thug’s real life fiancée Jerrika Karlae) from an assassin. Along the way, there is a switcheroo with a poisoned cocktail and a campy fight scene.
The clip cuts back and forth from beach footage and performance shots featuring Wyclef and Young Thug playing and singing on the Kid Art-directed project.
The pair recently teamed up for Young Thug’s “Kanye West” and “Elton.” Wyclef Jean’s Carnival III: Road to Clefication will likely be released next summer to mark the 20th anniversary of his debut album, The Carnival.
