Ex Reyes Get Some Help from Swing Dance Champion Sonny Allen in “Keeping U in Line”

If you need some serious motivation to stop bullshitting and chase your dreams, Brooklyn soul band Ex Reyes might be of some assistance. In their new video for “Keeping U in Line”, the band tap swing dance champion Sonny Allen for four minutes of pure bliss. Allen gets suited up once again to reminisce on his younger years while adding some new dance moves to his already impressive resume (and extremely shiny suits). Ex Reyes’ Mikey Freedom Hart spoke with Spin about the concept of the video and detailed that he was a former New Orleans jazz musician himself and played plenty of swing. He wanted to tell someone else’s story, that would’ve normally gone unnoticed in 2016, while connecting to his own story simultaneously. Watch the wonderful video below.
