Saints fans can cheer on the black and gold with a new anthem. Local musician Shamarr Allen popped up with the official music video for his viral sports song ‘Hit the Sean Payton.’
The trumpet player dropped the song via Youtube on Oct. 3 to celebrate the New Orleans Saints’ recent win against the New York Giants, according to a release.
The official music video for the viral hit was directed by The Dark Brothers, a twin-brother director duo born and raised in Houma, Louisiana.
The team, Derek and Preston Dark, directed more than 150 videos for artists including the Ying Yang Twins, Hurricane Chris, SilaS, Mista Cain and other independent artists. The Dark Brothers’ work has been nominated by the Nola Hip Hop Awards in 2014 and 2015 for best video and best video director.
The rap was inspired by Sean Payton’s sweet moves captured in a video by Alvin Kamara after the Saints defeated the Carolina Panthers last season.
The video taken during a locker room celebration went viral. A group of kindergartners at Green Park Elementary School in Metairie also posted their version of the dance, which took the internet by storm.
