"She's very attentive to the detail. She's got those ears, she's got the sensibility and the vision, and I'm just totally inspired to be in the studio with her," says Aoki.
There's no denying Lauren Jauregui's excitement. The Fifth Harmony singer beams sunshine over the phone like a glowing cartoon character of a person. She's giddy with the exhilaration of watching her recent Steve Aoki collaboration, “All Night,” rocket up the charts and is likewise thrilled to see her hand-written lyrics come to life in the Twitterverse, as fans around the world turn her hook into a self-love hashtag. And, on this phone call with Billboard, she's coming down from the rush of filming the official music video, an experience she's quick to call “one of the best days of my life, hands down.”
“I got to work with an incredible director who really took my vision for the song and made it even better and even more art oriented,” she says. That director was Mike Harris and, while she doesn't want to ruin the surprise, Aoki promises nothing but boss-level behavior.
“Lauren looks bad ass in this video,” he adds as she giggles. “She's a super hero in it. She's got her style on, lookin' really good.”
