Back in February, Shady Records' Boogie dropped off his first project on Eminem's roster, the soulful and lyrically introspective Everything's For Sale. In truth, the low-key project remains one of the year's strongest efforts thus far, understated though it may be; read our full review right here. Now, following up his last dose of visuals, the Eminem-assisted "Rainy Days," Boogie has scaled back on the intensity scale to deliver a more muted, intimate effort.
"Skydive," as directed by Gina Gammell, opens on a visually stunning note, using natural light to frame Boogie and his lover during a private moment. It's a testament to Boogie's status as a hopeless romantic, perhaps one of the game's most sentimental. It's certainly an interesting choice for a single, but there's power in "Skydive's" emphasis on self-reflection. Even when the narrative focus shifts to a younger character, the visuals remain consistent, with muted colors and heavy sunlight. Warm and welcoming, mirroring the instrumental's acoustic tonality.
