“Daylight” is a R&B song written by Bobby Womack and Harold Payne, released in 1976 as a single by Womack. In 2007, the song was re-recorded by American R&B singer Kelly Rowland and front man Travis McCoy of the indie hip-hop band Gym Class Heroes for the soundtrack of French film Asterix at the Olympic Games. Co-produced by S*A*M & Sluggo, it was released as the lead single from Rowland’s re-release album Ms. Kelly: Diva Deluxe, with a release date of March 2008 for the United States, May 5, 2008 for the U.K. and August 1 for German-speaking Europe.
The video for “Daylight” was filmed in November 2007 and was directed by Jeremy Rall and produced by Gina Leonard for Siblings Inc. and shot in New York City, New York, just ten blocks from the Empire State Building. A seven-seconds snippet of the video premiered on NBC‘s Clash of the Choirs. The clip shows Rowland among a bunch of people in a party scene alongside Travis McCoy. About shooting, Rowland said: “Shooting the music video for the song was hilarious, with Travis especially. He looked so funny and cute when he was riding a weird modified-bicycle in the middle of the bustling city.” The other members of Gym Class Heroes make cameos in the video.
