The funny thing about "Rio de Janeiro" is that it started off a beautiful sunny day on the rooftop in Manhattan, New York City and ended with a rainstorm in New Orleans at the airport. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the original photographer was not able to shoot the visuals for the song.
Up and coming New Orleans local musical artist and boyfriend R3 Marley reached out to New York award winning independent horror film director, Terrell D Perkins, who was able to capture the visual concept before leaving New York City.
New Orleans Film director and videographer "LeakOnnaLenz" aka Maleak Earl agreed with Q. Chelette to keep the same visual concept, but instead adapt to the weather and build off of the original concept, which was supposed to mainly take place outside before sunset.
