Voguing, ball culture, and the freedom found through dance is all celebrated in Calvin Harris and Sam Smith's new video. The breezy piano-house of "Promises" provides the backdrop for a number of New York-based dancers to share their stories of what voguing means to them before showing their moves alongside Smith in a club scene. Supermodel Winnie Harlow also appears in the video, which was directed by Emil Nava. Check it out above.
