Check out Sylvan LaCue's new video for "Empathy" featuring BJRNCK.
Sylvan LaCue is back today with another video off his Apologies In Advance project. Following up “Coffee Break,” the artist formerly known as Quest decides to return to scene and share another visual for his song “Empathy” featuring BJRNCK.
“I wanted the video to reflect some of my personal experiences with empathy and being empathetic towards others,” Lacue explains. “First scene starting off with my first experience with sharing my issues openly with someone. Which is getting a haircut with my barber. I feel like almost every black male’s first true interaction with therapy is with their barbers or at the barbershop. The verses are incredibly surface level, almost in a casual frustrating way. Then it transfers over to actual therapy, but with a woman. My second major experience with sharing my issues with someone, was with a woman that I loved dearly. I delved deeper into my problems because of the comfort level I experienced by being loved by another woman,” which is what I wanted to symbolize in the scene with BJRNCK (the Chicago songstress who guests on the record).”
