sobhhï Reminisces on Past Love in New Music Video “4am in riyadh”
Dubai-based R&B artist sobhhï released the official music video for his single “4am in riyadh” from his BLACK I EP. As the producer, director, and cameraman for the music video, sobhhï, demonstrates the full-scope of creativity he has to offer across all mediums.
The single showcases sobhhï’s characteristic sound with a blend of dreamy alt-R&B and unique mixes of hip-hop elements, a style he dubs Nocturnal Trapsoul. The atmospheric beat highlights his gentle vocals, perfectly suited with the production.
In the black-and-white video, sobhhï reflects his wishes to “link back up again” with a now distant lover by contrasting brighter scenes of his love with the darker, smoky scenes showing sobhhï aching with nostalgia. The subtle, minimalist shots frame sobhhï’s loneliness, switching between him and her but not the two together.
“It’s an amalgamation of my interests in minimalist design, vintage aesthetic imperfections (both in audio and video), and luxury casual fashion.” – sobhhï says on his direction and choice of location.
