Villa - "Journey" Music Video


I was sitting on the couch eating my dinner. BBQ chicken breasts, baked beans and salad for anyone that cares. Simultaneously, I was flipping through facebook on my cell phone. I clicked on a video that I've been hearing buzz about all day and I damn near spit my food out on the floor.

What Villa is doing as an artist at this stage of his career scares me a little bit. If he's going to get significantly better than this, that's going to be insane to witness. On the flip side of the same coin, could he be peaking too early? Only time will tell, but I think there is more and I can't wait to hear it!

"Journey" is Villa's first visual release preceding the much awaited 'Pack Light; Travel Far' album. The album is a continuation of the brilliant 'Inertia' release from late last year. I love the way Villa ties in (e)motion in many of his projects. Now beyond the heartbreak of 'Inertia', he takes us to the next stage of his development as an artist. This transformed Villa is more extrovert than before. He's taken that signature ATL attitude and paired that with his own airy sound to create some ish that makes me feel like I'm the flyest dude in the room when I'm listening.

Look for 'Pack Light; Travel Far' on July 16th. You already know where to come and get it! Dig into this video until then...
