Boogie's Shady Records debut brings forth another clip.
Back in February, Shady Records' Boogie dropped off his first project on Eminem's roster, the soulful and lyrically introspective Everything's For Sale. In truth, the low-key project remains one of the year's strongest efforts thus far, understated though it may be; read our full review right here. Now, following up his last dose of visuals, the Eminem-assisted "Rainy Days," Boogie has scaled back on the intensity scale to deliver a more muted, intimate effort.
"Skydive," as directed by Gina Gammell, opens on a visually stunning note, using natural light to frame Boogie and his lover during a private moment. It's a testament to Boogie's status as a hopeless romantic, perhaps one of the game's most sentimental. It's certainly an interesting choice for a single, but there's power in "Skydive's" emphasis on self-reflection. Even when the narrative focus shifts to a younger character, the visuals remain consistent, with muted colors and heavy sunlight. Warm and welcoming, mirroring the instrumental's acoustic tonality.
