Following a quick tour in Greece, Ariez Onasis’ frequent flyer miles stay flourishing with another international stop for his latest visual.

Last week, the globetrotting emcee delivered some new sounds for the turn-up with a slick remix to Knife Party’s smash “Boss Mode.” Today, the Massachusetts native gives fans a feast for the eyes in the form of his latest visual, “The Girl From Ipanema.” With frequent collaborator J. Cardim flipping the bossa nova classic of the same name by Brazilian music legend Tom Jobim (as sung by Frank Sinatra), AO enjoys all the scenery that Rio de Janeiro has to offer; from the special breed of females on the beach who inspired the original record, to the notorious favelas depicted most notably in the cult classic film <em>City of God</em>. Ariez also gets his Mickey Blue Eyes on, making part of his performance a classy black-tie affair.

The video was shot on location in Rio while the city played host to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Watch the vintage-looking visual directed and edited by Dan Moraru up top for some early summertime vibes.

Ariez Onasis’ The Gardner Heist project is coming soon, featuring new-school versions of classic cuts from 2 Pac (“Temptationz“), Madonna (“Justified“), Wu-Tang Clan (“Haagen Dazs“), and many more.
