“A phoenix rises from the ashes of destruction.”

In 2018, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Brent Faiyaz has only dropped one track: February’s “Make Luv” single. However, he’s still managed to make his presence known, and he’s back with another new visual.

Taking fans back to his renowned 2017 debut project, Sonder Son, Brent Faiyaz serves up a video for album standout “Gang Over Luv.” Notably, the piece is directed by Faiyaz and his longtime collaborator Noah Lee.

“Amongst the mayhem of a film crew and cameras, a video within a video: A phoenix rises from the ashes of destruction,” reads a statement from Lee, who took it upon himself to explain the creative direction behind the new “Gang Over Luv” visual. “‘Gang over Luv’’ sacrifices the thematic plight of the sonder video—the sheep is hunted by the wolf, the plane crashes and burns in an empty field… and in its place, Brent Faiyaz, the sonder son is born.” Sounds like Lee and Faiyaz are taking this new effort pretty seriously.

You can take a look at Brent Faiyaz’s new video for “Gang Over Luv” above, and learn about his “Sonder” vision in our 2017 interview with him.
