Get your views, black man!
One of my favorite songs of 2018 has joined the list of the top 10 biggest music video debuts on YouTube. For those who haven’t watched the video yet:
The video garnered close to 1 million views in the first hour, then amassed up to 12.9 million views in the first 24 hours, and now, it has gotten close to 70 million views, all within five days! For a bit of perspective, It has more views than some of 2017’s top YouTube videos.
So why the hype?
I guess it’s because of the way it used music and dance to critically address ongoing and deeply-ingrained issues surrounding race.
Personally, I’ve watched the video more than 50 times — still watching it at the moment.
So, seen the video, yet?
