Rating: 4/5

Jay Alvarrez and Kygo’s real-life friendship encapsulates camaderie. They both live public lives, although Kygo is the more well-known of the two. Neither see each other as competition (Alvarrez is a model) and have become family, bonding over the craziness of the lives they chose for themselves.

Kygo invites Alvarrez for a weekend in Ibiza, while he plays some concerts. In his off-time, Alvarrez provides some grounding for Kygo by keeping him company. Alvarrez turns Kygo’s work into a vacation. Alvarrez, though, respects Kygo and holds him in high regard. Kygo views him as a peer who understands what it’s like being famous. For them, the video was a chance to spend some much needed time together and hang out.
