Watch Cobi's "Don't You Cry For Me" Video, Artfully Exposing Injustice
"Please help me chop this tree down."
A lyric that instantly sticks in your mind, reminding you how thought-provoking music can (and should) be. LA-based artist Cobi's most recent single will do just that. It comes in the form of "Don't You Cry For Me," powerful in every sense and arranged beautifully. To add another layer, his video for the track touches on the unfortunate situations our society has faced, relevant to both the past and the present. Cultural consciousness through art is another emotion-seeking gesture Cobi seems to be effortless at.
In an interview, Cobi stated -
"The song was written around the time when Michael Brown was killed, Baltimore was uprising, and people around the country were protesting. There’s no denying the epidemic of police shooting unarmed black people. I hate seeing my friends living in fear and just had to speak what was in my heart and say what I felt needed to be said."
While also recently signing to 300 Entertainment, the above single achieved #1 on Spotify’s Most Viral Chart (World) and has surpassed 10 Million streams to date. Be sure to check him out on tour this autumn, alongside Boy & Bear. Dates below.
