Fashawn bring us a visual today for his new single “Higher” ft. Exile that is featured on his new album “The Ecology“. In the beginning of the video we see Fashawn on stage before he performs the song live and he tells the audience that the song is dedicated to his daughter and much of the video we see him with his little girl Hannah in a field of green grass with yellow balloons and butterflies. To me it sounds as if Fashawn is telling us of his struggle with being on the road and taking on the new fame while trying to manage being a good father. Its clear what is most important to him. But he knows he must get higher in order to take care of that. WE together must get “Higher” for our little ones. If you believe it, you can achieve it. If you go for it, he’ll show for it. When asked about the new visial, According to Fashawn:
“The video brings the song to life in an organic and beautiful way. There isn’t enough positive images of young black men out there being fathers to their kids to begin with, especially in rap videos. I believe it’s a break from the norm and a side of me of that my audience doesn’t get to see everyday.”
I hope you all enjoy. Let’s Love, unite, and RISE.
