Grammy-nominated, independent singer Brent Faiyaz unveils a cinematic visual for lead single “Gang Over Luv” from his critically acclaimed, debut solo album Sonder Son. Faiyaz co-directed the video alongside long-time creative collaborator Noah Lee. Watch the new video and check the ‘GOL’ merch drop HERE. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
“Amongst the mayhem of a film crew and cameras, a video within a video: A phoenix rises from the ashes of destruction. “Gang over Luv” sacrifices the thematic plight of the sonder video– the sheep is hunted by the wolf, the plane crashes and burns in an empty field… and in its place, Brent Faiyaz, the sonder son is born,” expressed Director Noah Lee of the music video.
A personal collection of songs that gives its listeners a vivid snapshot of Faiyaz’s life up to this point, Sonder Son makes a bold opening statement for the rising artist. From skipping school in Maryland to chasing dreams in Los Angeles, Faiyaz pours his soulful R&B roots in his debut project, crafting a texturally rich and sonically seductive release that leaves a lasting impression.
Earlier this year, Faiyaz earned his first-ever Grammy nomination for Best Rap / Sung Performance for the double platinum-certified collaboration for “Crew”. The single hit #1 on Billboard’s Top Emerging Artists Chart, reached #16 on Rap Airplay, and spent 21-weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Currently, Gang over Luv is #28 on Billboard Urban Hip Hop / R&B Airplay chart.
Brent kicks off the second, summer run of his 11-city Sonder Son US tour next month in Charlotte, NC on August 27. For more tour dates and tickets available, see here.
