Jamie xx – “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” (Feat. Young Thug & Popcaan) Video

A month ago, Stereogum’s readers voted “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” Jamie xx’s lightweight and effervescent collab with Atlanta rap bugout king Young Thug and Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan, as 2015’s Song Of The Summer. So it seems weird that the song, easily the biggest track from Jamie xx’s great In Colour album, is only now getting a video. But the video arrived this morning. It’s got scenes of Thug and Popcaan flexing on different rooftops, Jamie xx DJing a club somewhere, and a few pretty women lying by a pool. It’s a brisk and visually pleasant video, but I can’t shake the feeling that this song deserved something way more epic than that. Rollo Jackson directs. Watch it below.

UPDATE: Skepta recently debuted his remix of the track of Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Listen:

In Colour is out now on Young Turks.
