Starring Johnny Active & Manda Mae
Directed & Edited by Thomas Ridout
Produced by Andrew Triple A
Last year, Hozier took us all to church, and now Toronto-based/Calgary-bred rapper Johnny Active is putting his own spin on the hit song with his track "Take Me to Church (Remix)."
This isn't a typical remix. Rather, it's a new track that uses Hozier's song as its foundation and inspiration. In the video, directed by Thomas Ridout, we see Johnny Active hanging around a beautiful cathedral and rapping about a dysfunctional relationship. This narrative is brought to life by scenes in which the MC has a falling-out with his female friend.
The rapper said in a statement, "I put my own twist on Hozier's concept. When I began writing the song and during the time I was writing, I ended up meeting a girl that really embodied the idea of the song. We are both sorta messed up in our own ways and the whole relationship is messed up but I still call her up. Everyone has someone like that." The track was produced by Andrew Triple A. -- Exclaim!
