Relationships can fall under question with distance. Texts get the job done now and again, but sometimes it’s easy to forget the source of that fuzzy spark you feel for another. Then you and your special someone cross paths on the sidewalk after a month or two of separation — or perhaps a sushi dinner, accompanied by that delicious ginger dressing every Japanese restaurant serves with their appetizer salads — and the gears click. Your lover is real. You’ve slid back into a reality that once seemed fleeting.
ScienZe, who has crafted honest and touching hip-hop for many moons, uses his latest visual, “The Proof,” to explore and capture that bliss. What could top a light-hearted, long-awaited reunion, anyway? Director Genmotion weaves into the video the very essence of the song’s place in a greater narrative: the sensibly titled BringBackElla EP. Well, Ella is back, and we can’t help but smile watching ScienZe bask in his love’s glory.
Enjoy “The Proof” below.
