“This tale of a Phoenix is it dies and is reborn in it’s own ashes. So metaphorically we wanted to manifest that into my video”

Francesco Carrozzini also shared his views on the project, saying:

“With a talent like this [A$AP Rocky] you just want to make something that people will remember and we were able to involve Michael K. Williams and Joan Smalls in the video too.”
