New Video by Theophilus London: “Hey Wonderful”

Check out Theophilus London’s new 80′s-inspired visual for “Hey Wonderful,” from his new mixtape I Want You. Both the song and the video take you back to 1984, with the track’s “jiscomusic” flare (disco’s contemporary reincarnation) and a sample from Stevie Wonder’s “Love Light in Flight.”

Theophilus delivered a message with “I Want You,” [thanks to hypetrak.com] and we will not compromise his vision by correcting meaningless syntax or spelling errors:

“This track sparked the whole mixtape!
I bought every single Marvin Gaye record i could fine.. and spent an entire 2 months listening while working on my album in LA. I then bought the separate parts from the original song I WANT YOU by Marvin Gaye and
recorded my verse and singing in LONDON. I put all the different instruments together for the new wave version :)

It was a pleasure Covering this song! I really Want my Listeners! and this is my way of telling them!!
I am very Excited for people to hear my new desires and I just want Girls to wake up and put this on! eat their breakfast smoke their brains out and enjoy I WANT YOU”
