R&B superstar KEM teams up with multi-Platinum, GRAMMY and Golden Globe- nominated recording artist Wiz Khalifa on the remix of KEM’s chart-topping single “Lie To Me.” Today, the two legendary artists unveiled the official video for the track. In the video, which was directed by Gerald Isaac, KEM’s love awakens in an elegant mansion to find an array of romantic gifts. The camera glides through the home as KEM and Wiz serenade her on a sunny Southern California day. View HERE.
On the remix, which was released exclusively on Facebook last Friday, KEM captures the optimistic, pre-honeymoon stage of romance while Wiz examines a relationship where the partners no longer seem to be on the same team. While the original song was horn-fueled, lively keyboards propel the infectious remix. Download / stream “Lie To Me” Remix Ft. Wiz Khalifa HERE.
