Back in August, tobi lou closed the chapter on an impressive, attention-grabbing run of EPs by beginning the next stage of his career with a full-length studio album titled Live on Ice. An expansive project, Live on Ice delivered 21 tracks to listeners, including collaborations with Cam O’bi, Rockie Fresh, Erica Rene, Soundbwoy, Ryan Destiny and others. “I’m finally having an awakening and seizing my moment by putting out my first real offering and saying, ‘OK, I’m ready – judge me,’” tobi lou explained in an official statement on the aforementioned LP. Now, continuing to support that tape as 2019 comes to a close, tobi lou is introducing his last visual of the year: a partially-self-directed vignette for “Berlin,” one-half of the Live on Ice standout “Berlin/Westside.”
“There’s nothing more magical then why you pair something with music and you get it right. Whether it’s just watching a movie and a scene comes on, and what’s happening in the scene is great and the score is great,” tobi lou previously shared with Billboard, opening up about the importance of constructing high-quality, unique music videos. “Me and Glassface, who has done all my videos, I’ve always told him: people can think whatever they want about my music in general. Like, they can say ‘he can’t do this,’ or ‘he sounds like this,’ or ‘I hate this’ – but you can’t say much about my visuals.”
