New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Multi-platinum producer DJ Snake
has shared the animated video for "When the Lights
Go Down" — a track from his chart-topping sophomore album Carte Blanche. The high-energy visual was directed by Zac Wong, a filmmaker/artist/animator who's also created videos for artists like Imagine Dragons.
With its radiant colors and nonstop action, the video for "When the Lights
Go Down" reimagines DJ Snake
as a superhero-like figure. Fueled by the same explosive intensity found in the song, the surreal and spectacular visual culminates with a triumphant live set from the superstar DJ.
Earlier this year, Wong created the animated video for DJ Snake's star-studded single "Enzo" (a collaboration with Sheck Wes, featuring Offset, 21 Savage
& Gucci Mane).
Along with "When the Lights
Go Down" and "Enzo," Carte Blanche
includes the triple-platinum single "Taki Taki
" ft. Selena
& Cardi B
(DJ Snake's second global #1 record), the bilingual summer anthem "Loco Contigo
" (with J. Balvin & Tyga), the reggaeton powerhouse "Fuego
" (with Sean Paul
ft. Tainy), and the India-inspired club smash "Magenta Riddim." Released in July, Carte Blanche
hit #1 on Billboard's US Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
made his full-length debut with the 2016 album Encore, which reached #1 on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart and debuted in the top 10 around the world. Since scoring his first #1 with the four-times-platinum "Let Me Love You
" ft. Justin Bieber, DJ Snake
has achieved massive success with hits like "Get Low," "You Know You Like It," "Lean On," and "Middle." With its title translating to "the freedom to do whatever one chooses," his sophomore album Carte Blanche
arrived in July 2019 and shot to #1 on Billboard's US Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart, in addition to reaching the top 50 on the Billboard 200.
