French Montana and Swae Lee Head to Uganda for Their New Music Video, 'Unforgettable'

Watch the Kampala-shot music video for French Montana and Swae Lee's "Unforgettable."

French Montana took to Kampala, Uganda to shoot the music video for his latest single "Unforgettable," featuring Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee.


The video, directed by Spiff TV and French, begins with the duo hitting some dance moves in the streets, with members of the popular Ugandan dance crew the Ghetto Kids, and other locals. It seems like everyone is having splendid time, until—in a stale turn of events—Montana ends up being captured by a group of gunmen for reasons still unknown.

It ends before we get to see his fate, but it looks like an unwarranted sequel might be on the way, as the video fades out with Montana's next single "No Pressure," featuring Future playing in the background.

 

Last month, a clip of Swae Lee in Kampala, turning up with the Ghetto Kids surfaced on Instagram, and the feel-good clip is perhaps more "unforgettable" than the actual video. Revisit it below and watch the full video above.
