Don't Worry Bout It

Kings, Music Video – 2015

The video for the highest selling Kiwi song of both 2016 and 2017 was shot on a mobile phone in Fiji. Featuring beaches, pools, and partying, Don’t Worry Bout It was filmed by Auckland musician Kings while he was in Fiji for a music festival. Kings wanted to create an instrumental track with a summer feel, but added lyrics after watching his daughter run around a park without a care in the world. As of December 2017, 'Don’t Worry Bout It' held the record for the longest number of weeks (33) as the week's biggest-selling Kiwi single; it had been streamed on Spotify over six million times.

I wanted to create something with a real summer feel. I never had plans to put vocals on it because I was really happy with the beat... but after listening over and over I thought I'd give it a go.
– Kings on creating 'Don't Worry Bout It', on ZM Online, 8 June 2016
