Fresh off a best engineered album Grammy nomination for Head Over Heels, Chromeo delivered an opulent new video for their funky tune "Don't Sleep," featuring French Montana and Stefflon Don.

In the clip, a successful woman glides through her extravagant home with servants handing her fruit and fanning her face, while she ignores calls from the boys of Chromeo. "But you've been sleepin' on me/ Don't sleep, don't sleep on me," the chorus rings as the lady of the house slams the door on the duo's face.

"It’s lonely at the top," director Allie Avital explained. "‘Don’t Sleep’ is a 2018 satire for the age of dissatisfaction; the age of overstimulation and Tinder. Robin Givens plays a version of the ‘sad king,’ where the more pampered and entertained she is, the more disaffected she becomes. All the bulging biceps, sponge baths, and lap dances can’t cure her existential void.”
