Prolific artist Star 2 has united with budding video director Hector Toro, coming together on his new single, ‘Thinkin Bout You’.
It’s a well-established collaboration: the pair have discovered that they speak the same artistic language, and the results are brilliant.
Star 2 is an empathetic and expressive singer with an ear for contemporary trends, while Hector Toro is a well-traveled cameraman who has the ability to see the world around him with fresh eyes. ‘Thinkin Bout You’ is their latest collaboration, and serves as a seamless integration of the two artists’ visions, fully realising the promise of their previous clips, ‘I Wanna Get F’d Up’, and ‘December’.
While the Star 2-Toro Films partnership has been amazingly prolific already, they’re just getting started. Toro knows just how to capture the romance of Star 2’s adventures, and how to shoot the young singing star in a way to emphasise the depth of his feelings, and overwhelming emotion.
‘Thinkin Bout You’ sees Star 2 deliver a beautiful, searing, impeccably sung tale of longing and desire, designed for the hopelessly enamored, and all those who wish they were. Star 2 has a voice that’s designed for storytelling: no patter his passion, he is always clear and concise.
In the video for ‘Thinkin Bout You’, we see him as a Lyft driver enamoured by one of his passengers, played Lexi Torres. Although he takes her to her destination, she remains in his head, haunting his imagination, dancing just outside his field of vision. Hector Toro manages to make her feel just real enough for us to feel she’s more than a memory to Star 2. He’s devoted himself to a woman he barely knows and so when he gets another chance to give her a ride, he makes the most of it.
