This week, singer/actor Asher Angel dropped a brand-new video for his debut single, One Thought Away.
Now, Asher has opened up to Entertainment Tonight about what it was like filming the video, and how he feels about getting to work with Wiz Khalifa and girlfriend Annie LeBlanc for the new project.
“I got to work with Wiz Khalifa. I’ve listened to Wiz’s music, like, ever since I can remember,” Asher told ET. “So, like, getting him on this track was, like, a dream come true. And actually getting to meet him? Wow. Crazy.”
Asher revealed that he thought working with Wiz Khalifa was a long shot, but brought up his name to a producer anyway.
“Of course, it’s a long shot, but somehow it happened,” he said. “[One of the producers] went out of the studio… and he came back, he had Wiz on the phone and Wiz got the song two days later, he loved it, and a week later it was released.”
“And a couple of weeks later, the music video was shot, now it’s released, so it’s crazy. That’s how it happened. That’s the story.”
As for what he hand in mind for the music video, Asher said:
“The vision I had in my head like, I’m about to get on this plane and I’m in a dream sequence and I’m over there, my girl’s over there and I miss her,” he said. “Just one thought away, I could just take a plane to get to her, a car, you know, always wanna be with her.”
And who better to play Asher’s love interest than his real-life girlfriend, Annie LeBlanc?
“She’s just so nice, and she always makes me laugh when she’s on set,” Asher said. “It’s kind of hard for us to [work], like, everything takes longer because we can’t stop making each other laugh,” he revealed. “That’s probably my favorite part. And then we end up being really behind and we have to catch up.”
