I feel like every single week, I find myself writing about a new ericdoa release, but you’re not going to find me complaining about that for even a second. I’m not afraid to say that in my own personal opinion, eric is one of my all-time favorite artists out right now, and even though he might not be getting the number of plays that people like Kanye, Drake, or Young Thug are getting, it doesn’t matter at all. His musical quality is always top-notch, he’s pushing the envelope with every new release, and he is simply one of the most entertaining people in music currently, so how could I hate.
Thanks to all of this, he has been amassing an incredibly strong and loyal fanbase that is only continuing to grow, and I can’t think of an artist who deserves it more than eric. I just wrote about his song “Strangers” last week I believe, but I was so happy to see that he didn’t let the fun stop there, because he teamed up with Otto to direct an amazing music video for this hit, and I had to make sure that I wrote this one up.
As it begins, eric waits outside of his home for the school bus while wearing a uniform, indicating that he’s heading to a private school for what you’d assume would be a day of learning. When he gets on the bus, he walks down the aisle all the way to the back, passing friends along the way, some of whom include his producers Zetra and Glasear, before getting rowdy by turning the bus into a party.
Instead of studying as I assumed, eric makes his way around the school in the library, the gym, the bathroom, and the locker-filled halls, most of which contain his trademark logo, suggesting that he is in charge of things around those parts. These scenes continue to rotate, taking us through his day before he heads into a doorway and out of the picture, ending things once and for all.
Look, I know I might be a little biased because I do think eric is a star in every sense of the word, but you can’t tell me you heard this song or watched this video and think otherwise. I’m hoping that “Strangers” is just the start of a long string of releases that ultimately leads to another project to follow COA, but until we find out more of his plans moving forward, just make sure to sit back, relax, and enjoy the brand-new music video for this unforgettable song.
Last year, I was put onto countless new artists who consistently blew me away with their innovative takes on classic sounds and off-the-wall styles that were unlike anything I had heard previously. While there are too many talents to name right now, hyperpop became a genre that I couldn’t go...
There’s certain times as a music journalist that I can just hear the starpower as soon as I turn on a track, and the excitement that comes with that is an incredibly addicting high. That’s exactly how I felt when I was recently introduced to Chicago’s own Yung Swerv, whose...
