Kai Exos Brings His Video Game To Life In ‘Back 2 The Moon’ Music Video
Toronto-native and soul singer/songwriter Kai Exos showcases his creative genius in the official video for “Back 2 The Moon”, setting the backdrop for his very own intergalactic video game with the R&B-tinged single.
Watch as Kai travels through his own intergalactic world to his latest R&B inspired single
When Kai Exos first wrote ‘Back 2 The Moon’, the latest single off his self-titled EP, he immediately envisioned a video game to accompany it, leaping over astroids and lava in a virtual world he would design.
I found an antique book of Egyptian weaponry and wanted to explore my African heritage and some Ma’at principles a few years ago,” Kai shares about the inspiration for the track. “The lyrics and the story stemmed out of there to create this whole immersive experience.”
The video game will be available to play on mobile and web apps soon.
The video follows the release of his self titled EP which marked a shift in his sound from neo-soul to Alt R&B. The 5-track EP includes songs “Hold Out The Light” and “Fire And Brew,” which peaked at #14 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound last year.
Kai Exos is a singer and songwriter from Toronto, a native from Miami and currently writing and producing in LA. An advocate and soul music savant, Exos delivers universal messages through his work and the artists and brands he creates for.
Across 2013 and 2014, he went on his first ever world tour for the critically-acclaimed debut album, Telegraph. Exos has played shows across North America and overseas including House of Blues, Rockwood, Piano Bar, Soho House, Sundance Film Festival, London UK, Indie Week Ireland, Sofar Sounds, Camp Wavelength, NXNE’s Main Stage among other legendary venues.
Most notably, Exos performed as the headliner of Cannes Lions Festival.
The self-titled R&B iconoclast EP followed in spring 2018 along with tracks, “Hold Out The Light” and “Fire & Brew” – which accumulated 5MM+ worldwide streams and appeared on #14 on Billboard’s Next Big Sound. “Hold Out The Light” broke in to the US Mainstream Radio Charts with #4 most added on the Billboard Indicator Charts and smashed into the top 40. The second single, “Back 2 The Moon,” was another top 40 success, making Kai the only indie artist of the year with two consecutive charting singles.Tweet
