Pop star Kiesza has shared a music video for a dance song titled "Give It To The Moment," featuring record producer Djemba Djemba. Watch it above, courtesy of Kiesza's YouTube channel.
Shot in the subways and streets of NYC, the video shows her singing the track and showing off some Litefeet dance moves with various performers. Kiesza shared a Facebook description of how she became aware of the dance culture:
After a couple years I moved to Harlem and learned about Litefeet, a NYC-based dance culture which originated from within communities in Harlem, The Bronx and Brooklyn. Something about Litefeet really connected with me. It’s quirky and free flowing, with the added bonus of hat tricks and shoe tricks, but it's surprisingly challenging and requires a lot of strength, quick reflex and attitude to do it. Something I also really loved about it is that everyone involved in creating and evolving the style as their own way of doing it. Beyond just sheer skill, it requires a lot of individual expression. I haven’t had the opportunity to get much further than an amateur at Litefeet, but it struck a chord with me and absolutely I love to watch people doing it! I thought it would be fun to make a video including some of the people on the forefront of creating and evolving this amazing style of dance. We literally just grabbed a camera and ran around Harlem with dancers Godpicasso and Chrybaby Cozie, creator and founder of the Litefeet Nation movement!
