Video: Ludacris f/ Usher & David Guetta – ‘Rest of My Life’

Usher and Ludacris

Ludacris and Usher live life to the fullest in the video for their empowering record “Rest of My Life.” The ATLiens perform on a smoke-covered road and wave their lighters as motivational images flash across the screen. David Guetta speeds in a smart car, a shirtless Luda waves the U.S. flag, and even NBA star Chris Paul makes a cameo.

Luda pitched the collaboration to Usher while they were flying in first class. “Never did a record like this in my life, crazy how this came together,” he said. “I’ve been on a million Usher records. This is my first record featuring Usher. History has been made.”

The David Guetta-produced track will appear on Luda’s upcoming album Ludaversal, due early next year.

Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown, and Ludacris

It’s a celebration in the wild video for Swizz Beatz’ single “Everday Birthday” featuring Chris Brown and Ludacris. The Taj TPK-directed clip, which was inspired by the film The Hangover, was shot over the summer at Hotel Martinez, Club Palais, and Gotha Club in Cannes, France, with over 300 spectators in tow.

“I was inspired to do a song that people can listen to every day and celebrate life, just have fun,” says Swizz. “When you wake up, you’re born again so every day is your birthday!!”

Instead of putting out an album, the super-producer has decided to release a series of “memorable moments” based on the current singles-driven market.
