Creating a behind-the-scenes of a recording session, with random chroma screen elements, isnt a typical shoot. Though there’s very little about Houssein that you could label as typical. Mixing high-end 4K filming with low-fi VHS effects, Houssein’s concept gives just a little insight into the world inside his head, brimming with ideas and full of creativity - it was great to support him in the making of this music video, and we’re looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next.
Houssein began his music career in the theatre, at the age of 9. After touring the UK with his musical theatre ventures, he was introduced to social media, where he accumulated over 250M views and 100M interactions across different video sharing platforms. Releasing his debut single ‘5 Bucks’ in early 2018 and reaching the Top 100 in the UK iTunes charts. In mid-2018, he released Summer Night, which received over 200K Spotify streams.
