Video: Troy NoKA f/ T. Coles – ‘Right Now’

You may not have heard the name Troy NōKA, but that’s about to change. The singer/songwriter/producer has been working behind the scenes as Antoine “T-Wiz” Collins, crafting tracks for Chris Brown, Ciara, K’naan, and his close friend Frank Ocean (He produced three tracks on Nostalgia, Ultra). Troy is now stepping into the spotlight with his own album, Free Dreamin’.

The black-and-white video for the first single “Right Now,” which samples Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire,” borrows from a Nuit Blanche short.

“My friend knows I love classic movies and French culture, so he sent me that video,” explained Troy. “I happened to be working on the music at the same time and it just synced up perfectly visually and conceptually. The guy in the video is dreaming—he wanted to be with the woman right then, right now, now matter what.”

Blow your mind with Troy’s explosive debut.
