Detroit-bred singer, producer, and songwriter JMSN has shared the new video for Slide, the fourth track from his latest album Whatever Makes U Happy.
“I like to leave things open for interpretation on a lot of my videos,” explains JMSN in the press release, adding “This video is no different in that sense. The more intense drama, the better. I take myself so seriously it may be considered to some as funny, but I’m deadass. But of course, there’s a comedic touch to everything I do. Humans taking themselves seriously is funny to me. I like ‘bootleg,’ very personal stuff with character and real emotions. That way there’s a space for humor. Maybe something you didn’t think is funny becomes funny. The video was inspired by the movie Natural Born Killers. Woody Harrelson is one of my favorite actors and this movie is amazing in so many aspects. So, I wanted to channel that for this video – not make the same exact thing but a version of it.”
Having already received props from Puff Daddy and Usher (among others), JMSN has also been tapped up by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Game, Mac Miller, J. Cole, Tyga, Ab-Soul, Kaytranada, Ta-ku, and more.
Alongside the Slide visuals, the US artist has also two UK shows – one at London’s Village Underground on 27th June, and another four days prior on the opening day of this summer’s Glastonbury Festival.
