Fredo and Dave's collaboration on Money Talks gets a tremendous visual directed by Edem Wornoo, as we follow the story of how a £50 note ended up on the rappers' extraordinary mountain of money - that they then set alight.

From the spectacular beginning, things only get more impressive. Essentially, Money Talks is about our relationship with money as humans and the ways in which it reveals things about us. And this is a hugely powerful video for Friedo and Dave's incendiary track.

Through the course of the video we move steadily backwards, and in each superbly mounted sequence, Fredo and Dave defy logic by performing in sync while the footage is clearly moving in reverse. But that is only partly about a clever visual technique. It is also a drama, where the unsavoury human behaviour that revolves around the journey of this substantial banknote is unveiled.

A story of the corrupting power of money that is brilliantly told by Edem, a very impressive new directing talent.
