She’s the voice behind the oh-so-catchy Like A G6 track, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 towards the end of last year. Since then, Dev has got us sharing a common love for “beats fast and bass down low”, made a mash-up of a Hellz-Bellz wardrobe in Booty Bounce, and has been working on her debut album, The Night the Sun Came Up, due out September.
In the meantime, she’s worked with music video director Ethan Lader to create the video for her single, In the Dark. Lader has already made videos for the other tracks she’s performed with The Cataracs, and he also created ones for B.o.B’s Nothing on You and Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are.
Here is In the Dark, a sexy video that welcomes this Californian newcomer onto the list of voices to keep an ear on – she’s got sass, attitude and a style that’s fast evolving, both visually and sonically. The video plays on her lyrics of hands doing what they will in the dark, and the contrast is slick and alluring.
