Déjà Vu Ricky Tyler

SA’s rising RnB/Pop sensation, Ricky Tyler, has just released a creative emotive music video for single, Déjà Vu.

The music video was shot by Playground Productions’ director, Kyle Brown, who chose to shoot the Déjà Vu video in a one camera frame style to showcase how quickly loss can occur.

“Proud to announce my debut video is finally out! I’d like to dedicate this to anyone who has ever lost someone special to them. This video is about life loss and celebration and I hope the video makes you feel something,” expresses Ricky Tyler.

Known to go against the grain and be leaders in their field, Playground Productions’ Kyle Brown and Ricky Tyler wanted to emulate a strong emotion and story on screen in a simple yet effective manner.
