“The release of this song and video had so much anticipation behind it,” Brick confesses. “Just off of a 15 second Instagram clip I had DJs, industry executives, and fans’ hitting me up saying it was the one.”

“As soon as I heard “Never Ever” I called Brick to tell him he finally had that worldwide hit” explains DJ Winn – VP of Cool Running DJs. “He not only deserves it, but he is quite capable of running the race alongside the majors. I’ve said that from day one.”

The video was shot in Tarpon Springs at the Baumgart’s East Lake mega mansion by Justin Petrone & 12/12 Productions, directed by Randy Cabrera, shot and edited by PK Sellers. The mansion boasts the scene of a lavish lifestyle featuring exotic cars, beautiful women, and the avoidance of a THOT (slang for thirsty hoe over there). On the song, Brick sticks to his commitment to play the field over a slow-riding groove, deep bass line and a subtle electric guitar provided by West Coast producer MigL Beatz. (more…)
