Mike Posner “My Light”

Props to Mike Posner for the new video and song “My Light” — a refreshingly raw and transparent record that really reflects the true person, Mike Posner. He melodically tells his personal story of feeling lost, a lack of confidence, and then coming to the ultimate conclusion of wanting to share his life, his light through his songs and writing. For me, seeing his career progress, the lyrics of this song help piece together why there was such a long break between his first album and the upcoming project, Pages. It looks like there may have been a journey of self-growth that had to happen first and is now being reflected in Posner’s art.

The video drives home the lyrics in a very creative way, following Posner from an empty stage, through video shoots, and back to a stage with a sold out crowd. There are also some cool visual effects imposed on Posner himself for the chorus — appropriately balanced with the rest of the scenes and aesthetically cool too. Needless to say, I think you should check it out for yourselves above.

Mike Posner “Top Of The World” f/ Big Sean

Mike Posner takes it back to his hometown for the new video to “Top Of The World”, the newPages single that premiered earlier this week. Big Sean and all of their D-Town homies appear in the video, alongside Mike’s actual family (his parents and sister) and even some of Detroit’s best athletes like Nate Burleson. Posner and Sean find themselves at Ford Field, Comerica Park, the Palace in Auburn Hills, as they merge some sports scenes into the video as well. The fun they have in this video is infectious and makes me like the single even more (the date skit was funny too). All in all, it’s an easy suggestion to watch and upgraded to a *Tibs Fav.

Produced by Diplo & Benny Blanco and directed by Jon Jon Augustavo.
