You’ll find yourself laughing or jigging – or both – to the video for Roy O’s “Fluorescent,” featuring Hot Peez.

Somewhere between the wind down of summer and the start of cuffing season, there needed to be a moment where you could just have fun. Roy O’s “Fluorescent” made itself a place in that moment. With Kez Jonez on the beat, the Houston emcee dropped clever bars about shining through it all, and Boot-to-The-Bayou-City rapper Hot Peez provided more Louisiana flavor alongside the track’s bounce music-inspired beat.

Now, the lead single to Roy O’s upcoming ‘OVIE’ project has an official set of visuals to match.

“Fluorescent’s” music video opts for a lighthearted approach, with Roy O becoming “Grandpa Leroy,” the flyest, most-jigging-est old man you’ll ever witness. It’s hard not to dance along with Grandpa Leroy when he rises up from his recliner in the cemetery and starts moving along to the beat. But it’s just as hard not to chuckle when Leroy interacts with bystanders in the mall and kicks back in a massaging chair. He’s the star of the video (and damn near could be the star of an upcoming Madea movie), but Roy O himself and Hot Peez do make appearances, the latter rapping into the camera and the former dancing amidst a crowd in a colorful alley.

After all the devastation in the city in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, “Fluorescent’s” visuals seem vibrant and celebratory – a reminder that the sun DOES come out once the storm is over. Unless you’re “the type of n*gga that needs a ride home,” as the song says. In that case, you might be out of luck.
