"When I got to the studio, I found myself in a room with not only Nick (Afrojack), but also rap legends Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Twista," Mack tells Billboard. "We started vibing, and Nick ended up inviting me back to write with him every day for a week. It was an honor."
Prior to shooting the video (which, yes, begins at Mack's funeral), "Afrojack invited me to watch his Ultra set on Friday night," Mack tells Billboard. "After his set, we stayed up all night in Miami and then went straight to the 'Funeral' video shoot in the morning."
At the shoot, the director's apartment lobby was converted into a funeral home "with the use of a few key props like the coffin I laid in," according to Mack. "It was pretty cozy in there and I even dozed off for a minute. When it came time for the funeral home set up to transform into a club, the smoke machine set off the fire alarm in the entire building and we had to stop shooting for an hour.“
