“Get to Work”
“I wake up, I get high. I thank God, and then it’s time to get to work. Go get the money, go get the money, go get the money, go get the money go.” – lyrics
The Jason Maek-directed video puts an animated twist on John Landis’ legendary “Coming to America” movie starring famed actor Eddie Murphy.
Zaena X Jason Maek
Maek, having to wear numerous hats, dawns the role of Prince Akeem. While Zaena takes on several of Eddie Murphy’s famed characters such as Sexual Chocolate and reenacts the infamous barbershop scene.
“I love remaking ‘Coming to America’ for this song because sonically, ‘Get To Work’ is classic and raw. Recreating this was awesome and I got to be three dudes. Can’t top that!” – Zaena explains
Maek threw his two cents in and explained why they took such a creative path that no other has gone before.
“Either we were going to nail this or it was going to be a disaster. There was no middle ground. I think we did a good job in paying homage while giving people a little nostalgia.” – Jason Maek
