The always intriguing duo The Very Best are back with a video for a new single off their forthcoming full-length due to drop this summer. You may notice that the beginning of the track samples Lil Wayne's "A Milli" before delving into the electronic-fueled pop track. That sample is a hint at the videos theme. In the video for the 2008 Lil Wayne single, it showcases the rapper strutting around a set with his posse and security guards in tow.
