Pierdo La Cabeza – Zion y Lennox , Gus Films
We had some special guests from Miami at our hotel this past weekend. A while back we received news form a Miami director, Gustavo Camacho, of Gus Films who informed us that he was interested in shooting a music video at our hotel. The artists he was working with were the popular reggaeton duo Zion & Lennox, both based out of Miami, Florida.
Gustavo and his crew, shooting exclusively with a RED camera, reserved our rooftop, lobby, a deluxe suite, and a section of our restaurant, Mundo, to film the video for their hit single “PIERDO LA CABEZA” / “I Lose My Mind.” Check out the lyric video below (which currently has over 3 million views) followed by some of the footage our team captured from behind the scenes.
