Fresh off the release of his new album Everyone's Just Winging It And Other Fly Tales, Blinky Bill is back with a music video for his new single "Don't Worry," premiering today on The FADER. The rapper and producer hails from Nairobi, and the fun clip for the trap and Kwaito-influenced tune was filmed in Detroit, where Bill was visiting for an Afrofuturism lecture. Decked out in inflatable costumes, Bill dances amongst a collection of scrap and old toys that's too full of life to be called a junkyard.

Bill was joined at the location by collaborators Osborne Macharia, Andrew Mageto, and Kevo Abbra. "We found this place called the Heidelberg project that had this magical wonderland that just matched the universe that we envisioned for this song," Bill told The FADER in an email. "I feel like the vibe we created with the visuals is in tune with the spirit of the song which is just about staying in your lane and minding your business. I like that it takes a song that is serious and aggressive and makes it a little bit more fun."
