In the visual, viewers get a peek into the crooner’s optimistic psyche, illustrating his contagious positivity even in the face of adversity.
“I told [the director] I wanted it to be real and show what I’m really going through because that’s what the song is… the couch scene was me showing my insecurities of my time being homeless and sleeping on the couch of a friends house,” Peter $un says of the video.
Dubbed the rising neo-soul sound, Peter $un’s music combines a feel-good fusion of rap, jazz, and electronica dripping with soulful psychedelic. The new tunes radiate an empowering, upbeat energy that forces you into the present moment. He aims to remedy the big changes we’re all experiencing in this current climate and appreciate the little things, taking it a day at a time.
“When I wrote this song things in my life were chaotic and unexpected, much like 2020 has been so far. I’m a strong believer in history repeating itself so I try to capture moments that will be relatable not just now but 20 years from now. I think the unity and love between our people during this time is beautiful! Black is beautiful! The fact that the world is finally aware of the systematic racism in America that’s been going on for hundreds of years is an amazing first step in the changes that are necessary for true equality in this country. I wrote this music to comfort me through some of my darkest days so hopefully it can make someone else’s brighter.” – Peter $un
