French songstress, Ana Zimmer, recently released the new video for her track “Money.” The visual subtly uses the colors of the french flag throughout, directed by Akatre; the low key visual style further enhances each artists performance. Ana’s voice rolls along with the record, especially on the chorus where she opens up vocally. The hometown kid Finding Novyon looks and sounds comfortable even though a flight to France was necessary to complete this video. Fresh off another Red Bull Sound Select show in L.A, the sky continues to be the limit for Novy. A dope visual, check out “Money” above and be on the look out for more from both artists.
