Being a Vancouver-based hip hop and alternative artist, SonReal has proved to have what it takes to shine in the music industry. Although it was hard, I had to pick three of my favourite videos… if you have your own list, drop a comment below and let me know what you think!
Now, you might be wondering, what’s so good about this video? Well, that’s simple. Everything. First of all, we get to experience cinematography at its best. There is something about how the video was made that fits the tone of the song perfectly. Nothing like a mushroom haircut and a shirt that matches your drapes to get people talking. This song explains SonReal’s rise to fame, right now people ask who he is, but later on, they won’t be able to stop talking about him.
An amazing song with a beautiful and touching meaning. There are so many different emotions portrayed in the video that is impossible to not relate to them. I mean, the mother just wants his son to be happy. Is that too much to ask? The video also features more scenarios where believing seems to be the only thing anyone can do. And just like most of SonReal’s videos, you can truly see the emotions in the video and the lyrics.
A great collaboration between SonReal and Rich Kidd. I have always liked how SonReal makes all of this songs relatable. In addition, he accomplishes this by being himself. “Already There” seems to be a song about reaching a point in your life where you consider yourself to be successful, but at the same time, keeping true to your values. One of my favourite lines from the song is “Still the same me, nothing new, nothing less, I just don’t got my hands upon my head looking all stressed”. I feel that is what money is all about. It serves as a key for freedom, and a stress-free life!
Finally, SonReal’s next music video is doing an open casting call for extras. He will be shooting his next music video this Friday on Jan 17, 2014. Interested? Sign up by leaving your name on the official SonReal Facebook Page.
