VP Records artist Spiritual has released the video for ‘Time has Come’, the second single off his debut album “Awakening” produced by Oufah Music (Shabba Ranks, Omi). The video portrays Spiritual narrating a story about a troubled man looking for escape after he purloins tapes from reggae archives. The man gets confronted by a preacher along the way, but just when he believes his quest is successful, he is confronted by Spiritual.
Filmed in the country sides of Jamaica, the visual is parallel to the poignant lyrics of the song, as it showcases images of mothers, fathers and everyday working folks who have worry but also hope in their eyes. Crooning “When I see people out there crying, I cry too, when I see people out there suffering, I suffer too,” his empathy and love for helping people is evident in the video and is testimony to his identity as a whole.
VP Records artist Spiritual has released the video for ‘Stand Up to Rasta’, the first single off his debut album “Awakening”. Shot in various parts of New York City (Queens, Brooklyn), the video sends the message of staying true to one’s self despite pressures to mold into the corporate world. Directed by A1 Vision, the video has no shortage of beautiful shots of New York City’s landscape and Spiritual’s energetic and bold energy.
Symbolism is displayed throughout the video, as what looks to be a simple game of chess, represents much more. His opponent is a standard business man who seemingly plays by “the rules”, while Spiritual carefully plans his moves with thoughtful introspection to show the strategic way in which he navigates day to day within "the system."
