It’s not a secret that the world and United States are in a tumultuous time. Between a global pandemic and rising racial tensions plus the most divisive presidential election anyone under the age of 30 has seen in their lifetimes, there’s never been a better time to be part of the solution.
Wuki dropped the second single, “I See You” with Stoppa, from his forthcoming debut album earlier this year, and now he presents the official music video, a tribute to those standing up during an era of mass surveillance, heightened inequality, and political unrest.
“We’re in a strange but also powerful moment in the world,” says Wuki. “There’s so much turmoil and uncertainty, but it’s happening alongside important and meaningful movements that will shape how we move forward. For me, music is the way that I process the world – it can be a beautiful escape, or a time capsule of a generation capturing a moment, or anything in between. I wanted this song and video to be a tribute: to the people standing up and making their voices heard, to the tides of change, even to everyone needing a moment of escape. I see you all.“
As a producer who champions black artists and continues to be an ally towards underrepresented communities, Wuki wanted to show his support towards the movement by using his platform to give a voice to those who are continuing to fight the injustices happening in the world today. The video reflects the struggles that those fighting for justice are facing, both in the pacing of the song itself and the imagery therein.
