LaDonnis Shoots a Horror Film for “Hallelujah” Video
LaDonnis (formerly known as Donnis) releases the video for "Hallelujah," the third single off of A Sunny Place for Shady People. The visual is directed by Sean Hollihan and produced by Burning Film. The video by the former XXL Freshman looks like a horror film. The imagery and aesthetic are dark and feature Donnis walking through a gothic-like mansion with some beautiful baddies doing something that looks like an exorcism.
LaDonnis had this to say about the record. "I wrote 'Hallelujah' last winter after coming off of a really bad break up," he said through email. "The beat lead me to the moment where everything clicked and I was just completely over the situation and knew that I’d be fine without this person in my life anymore. I think everyone who gets out of a toxic situation looks forward to the moment where they are free from the chaos. Hallelujah."
"Hallelujah" was produced by Alex Goose (Weezer, Kevin Gates), Deffie, Two fresh (Vic Mensa) and Playa Haze (Danny Brown). Watch the video below.
Hailing from Atlanta by way of Tokyo, the Fool's Gold artist broke out with his Top 40 single "Gone," which landed him on the cover for the 2010 XXL Freshman Class alongside J. Cole, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa. Donnis' last project was his 2012 album, Break Hundreds & Hearts.
