Have you seen their sexy new video? We never would have put singers Danny K and Donald, and dance music producer Heavy K together -- but after hearing their new track, it just makes sense! YOU went behind the scenes of the black-and-white music video.

Have you seen their sexy new video? We never would have put singers Danny K and Donald, and dance music producer Heavy K together -- but after hearing their new track, it just makes sense!

Their song Personal Paradise, fromDanny K’s album Good Look, was a collaboration right from the first lyric to the last and was later remixed by Heavy K.

"I wanted to collaborate with a select few artists for this album and Donald caught my eye right from his first single I thought damn 'who is this guy'. He's a great singer, has great songs and is a great song writer too," Danny tells YOU.

The two met backstage at the 2012 SAMAs and decided to collaborate on a single.

"We wanted to impress each other so we brought our best," says Donald. Both stars say the experience made them feel like they had been working together for a long time.

Danny and Donald decided to do a song that would “encourage people to overcome and rise above their challenges in life”. Danny told YOU he would have needed this song when his brother Jarren Koppel died in 2003, as that was the biggest challenge in his life.

"We both kinda knew that people would expect us to do a love song and we thought you know what, because of that we are not doing a love song," says Donald.

Video director, Mark Hofmeyr, says the Personal Paradise video is about sophistication and switching "from the mundane to the extraordinary".

The Personal Paradise video is completely in black and white (the name of Donald's new album) and there are cameo appearances from Danny K's twitter followers, celebrity dentist Lex Leo and Danny’s wife Lisa.
