Los Angeles, CA – The fifth installment of Steve Aoki’s video series from his acclaimed album KOLONY, Aoki partners with musician Ricky Remedy for “Thank You Very Much,” featuring hip-hop’s sought after producer Sonny Digital. Marking his debut as a rapper, Digital provides the vocals on the release, showcasing his quick lyricism for the very first time. Following in the footsteps of its predecessors “Lit,” “Night Call,” “Without U” and “$4,000,000,” “Thank You Very Much” is the latest single off the KOLONY album, which debuted at #1 on the US iTunes Electronic Chart. The music video, switching between above ground and below, opens up to a state of disarray, with Aoki surrounded by broken down mannequins sorting through the wreckage. Traveling down to the darkest regions of the manor inside its basement, we find Digital in the basement joined by Remedy, who is slowly trying to rebuild the discarded pieces into a creation of his own.
