Video: Trevor Jackson f/ B.o.B – ‘Drop It (Remix)’

Trevor Jackson and B.o.B

Ladies, report to the dance floor. Trevor Jackson wants you to “Drop It” once again in his remix video featuring B.o.B.

The 17-year-old heartthrob linked up with his Atlantic Records labelmate on the L.A. set. With director Mike Ho at the helm, Trevor performed some slick moves and cozied up to a sexy lady.

“We just clicked,” said Trevor of B.o.B. “Our chemistry was good on-camera and he just brought a whole new element to the video, so I’m thankful that he was able to make it out here.”

While the original video was more concept-driven, the remix video is pure visual. “I wanted to take my photography and make it move,” said Ho. “You’re gonna see more chemistry and more performance-driven [scenes], but beautiful shots.”

The song can be found on Trevor’s debut EP #NewThang, available now.

With director Mike Ho once again at the helm, Trevor busted out some slick choreography in a warehouse.

It was only his second time meeting the Hustle Gang rapper. “We just clicked,” said Trevor. “Our chemistry was good on-camera and he just brought a whole new element to the video, so I’m thankful that he was able to make it out here.”

B.o.B was happy to be part of the production. “I just feel honored to be in the presence of such talent,” he said.
