Simply Rayne’s “Don’t Stop” Music Video World Premiere
The concept of the video incorporates Rayne’s multicultural background, her strong sisterhood foundation, an underlying theme of sassy female empowerment, and of course, a love interest, who is encouraged to never stop dancing and to keep the flame of a new relationship alive. Hip-Hop rapper/singer, Baby Bash, makes a featured appearance in the video, adding a hint of Latin flavor to the video with his rapping swagger and familiar smooth style. A cameo appearance by music producers, The Klubjumpers, can be seen as they play the new single in the dance club.
If “Don’t Stop” is any clue, Simply Rayne just simply won’t stop until she’s on top of the world! The song has already been remixed by The KlubJumpers, Jay Salter, Dark Intensity, Knappy, Ronnie DiCicco, DJ Strobe and John Hohman.
