Directed by Dameon Gayle for Warrior Films JA, and filmed on location at the Water Front “Downtown Kingston” in Jamaica (local covid rules observed), "My Story" does just that, it puts honest visuals to an honest and candid story. Fans of Mr. Vegas knows that his lyrical prowess tap into our everyday world, good or bad, happy or sad, his story-telling chants unite us globally by singing along, while swaying to the pulsating beat of the hit-bound Black Shadow produced track.
Speaking on this emotional musical narration, Mr. Vegas explained, "I have been in similar situation,but not to that effect or magnitude where anyone died. But it's a story that's been told over and over again. It is unfortunately relatable facts and events". He further added "I am extremely happy with this project! The video is like a short film and my song is the soundtrack. The directors wrote a great treatment and were effective in executing the vision."
