Chromeo Taps French Montana & Stefflon Don For Funky “Dont Sleep”
Chromeo issues a warning. Chromeo never lacks in Funk, and they bring their latest edition of the genre in the form of “Don’t Sleep,” a new collaboration that comes gifted with verses from Stefflon Don and French Montana.
“It’s lonely at the top,” “Don’t Sleep” music video director Allie Avital explains. “‘Don’t Sleep’ is a 2018 satire for the age of dissatisfaction; the age of overstimulation and Tinder.

In the clip attached to the new track, Robin Givens plays the central role of a woman who lives in her extravagant castle-like home, surrounded by a throng of man servants, remaining ultimately unsatisfied with such a lavish lifestyle.
“Robin Givens plays a version of the ‘sad king,’ where the more pampered and entertained she is, the more disaffected she becomes,” notes Avital. “All the bulging biceps, sponge baths, and lap dances can’t cure her existential void.”
