Behind the Video: David Guetta f/ Chris Brown & Lil Wayne – ‘I Can Only Imagine’

David Guetta brings his vision to life in the video for “I Can Only Imagine,” his latest single featuring Chris Brown and Lil Wayne. The superstar trio shot the futuristic clip on six different sets, utilizing face mapping technology.

“David Guetta actually has this control room that’s made out of all holograms,” explained director Colin Tilley. “It kinda feels like Minority Report. It’s just got a really crazy vibe and he’s controlling everything that’s happening in his world. He’s controlling these dancers that are going crazy, he’s controlling Chris Brown in this room with this mask on.”

Weezy performed his verse while skating on a glowing ramp, while Breezy donned a light-up suit for his dance scene. “It looks very surreal from a whole other planet,” added Tilley.
