On this Wednesday before Thanksgiving, there's probably a lot you could be doing—or should be doing. But before you do any of that, you should watch the new video from Variance favorite Sway Clarke.
We're premiering the video for his new song "#missamerica," which stars the singer's own sisters and mother. It's an undeniably incredible ode to black women. And it's also quite simply a jam.
The song was inspired by a trip back home to Toronto, the death of a friend who was shot and killed by police and the subsequent anger over how it was seemingly ignored by the news media.
"I always say, 'The only thing harder than being a black man today, is being a black woman.' I see that shit," says Clarke of the track, which is off his Messy Red EP, explaining his decision to create a triumphant single, not only to his mother, sisters and nieces, but to all black women everywhere. "I hope you know we see you!"
Watch the video below and stay tuned for more from Sway Clarke.
