In the wake of the release of his album “SiX TAPE”, award-winning artist Bleu is back with a song that embraces the chaos of “A Crazy Life!” Together with co-writer and multi-instrumentalist Mr. McGinty (Kanye, Lizzo, Pharrell), the new track focuses on loyalty, love and what it means to “grow up”.
Brilliantly associated with a playful visual created by Beth Jean, the new piece of Bleu sucks you in from the first needle drop. The stop-motion video features Blue as both narrator and observer as he takes us on a hallucinatory journey with a clay-animated mini Blue interacting with a giant naked statue of himself. Pee-Wee’s Playhouse Meets Aesthetic Sledgehammer displays a playful attitude towards the helplessness that life can throw at us. Between flying brains, poo-cupcakes and extinction of the dinosaurs – Bleu’s new video is a circus in itself … and it is safe to say that we are ready to go.
“Scream at the stars and dance in the fire. Remember what you told me, it’s A Crazy Life!”
The collaboration with Mr McGinty is not the first time that the two artists have fused their considerable talents. Jesse McGinty is one of LA’s most sought-after studio musicians and has made several appearances as a co-writer and instrumentalist on some of Bleu’s biggest catchy tracks, including “Baby By Your Side” and one of his most popular songs “Love You So”. . Jesse and Bleu are also co-producers of a song released with viral Canadian artist Gabriela Bee on 10/15 titled “LIKE2LIKE”.
“Mr. McGinty always knows how to bring out my sunny side. Aside from his ridiculous musicality, his relentless positivity is simply incredibly inspiring! “
