DJ Cassidy’s ‘Calling All Hearts’ Video With Jessie J, Robin Thicke + A Smoking Cat Is Some Seriously Disco Eye Candy

Watch DJ Cassidy's new video for "Calling All Hearts" featuring Robin Thicke and Jessie J.DJ Cassidy, Jessie J, and Robin Thicke groove the pain away in “Calling All Hearts.”

“What’s it going to be, me or the music?” DJ Cassidy’s girlfriend asks him at the beginning of his new video for “Calling All Hearts,” the debut single from his upcoming Paradise Royale. It’s a tough call, but you can probably guess where his true love lies.

It’s with the super-cool, taxidermied cat smoking in the window of a store! And then music. Then the girlfriend. Maybe all three? Or, is a perfectly fitted hat Cassidy’s one true love?

“You know what they say, a hat in your life takes you to paradise,” a kindly milliner tells our man as he’s roaming around a hat store dejectedly, as one does post-breakup. Do “they” actually say that though? We’ve never heard anyone ever say that. But, there’s no time to dwell, because it’s time to dance!

Aiding in dancing away Cassidy’s pain are pals Jessie J and Robin Thicke, not to mention a 13-piece band in preppy sweaters jamming on a flamingo-pink stage, because why not?

The jubilant song bounds along on a pop-funk-disco euphoria, despite all the hangdog mugging that opened the video. (Some of that bounce, BTW, comes from Nile Rodgers, who lent Daft Punk so much cool on “Get Lucky.”) That’s because, much like chewing gum and walking, it’s almost impossible to dance and mope at the same time. #Fact

So, get out on the dance floor! Whether or not your moves are as expertly executed as the immaculately styled, “Soul Train”-esque dancers that pop up in between shots of Thicke and Jessie remains to be seen, but the important thing is that you simply try.

“Four years ago, I set out on a mission to bring the greatest and most universal dance music of all time back to the airwaves, back to nightlife, back to the dance floor,” Cassidy said in an interview with Rolling Stone. Looks like he’s off to a pretty good start.
