If you loved the music video for Destiny Child’s Billboard No. 1 single, “Say My Name,” then you will absolutely love the new music video by Cuban musician and filmmaker Keithian for his summer smash “Chance?” out today.
Keithian’s Top 15 single takes you on a journey from one room of color to the next. Embracing his true musicianship, the video starts with him playing one of his musical instruments, an electronic keyboard. And each scene of the video renders a different color from yellow, to orange, pink to purple, and even a scene with multi-colored speakers. In each scene, Keithian is wearing an outfit to compliment both the scene and his love interest.
Speaking about the single “Chance? is a play on the card you pull in Monopoly, you never know what you’re gonna get so it’s a tease. So, when I wrote this song, I had an experience in mind, where I did everything, I could get the attention of this girl, but she treated me like shit. Then right when I got uninterested, she started to have interest in me. I then started to play games and do things that I knew got to her just because I resented her for playing hard to get. But the awkward thing was, I knew both of us were not gonna be honest enough to make it right or leave, so we just stayed in it and played the game.” – Keithian
You are sure to be grooving to the beat and keeping Chance? on repeat. Keithian delivers smooth vocals and a falsetto just right on this chart-topper as he sings the chorus “What’s the chance you’re calling me out?/What’s the chance I’ma hear it coming outta your mouth? Yeah /What’s the chance you’re putting me out? /What’s the chance I’ma hear “I don’t love you?”
Throughout the video, you can find Keithian acting out scenarios that are all high risk tying in with the song’s meaning of putting it all on the table and taking a chance. We see the talent the Louisiana native has inherited from his Cuban father, who was a TV producer, as well as his mother, a professional choreographer. The singer, songwriter, and filmmaker bring these talents and energy to his video with stimulating dance moves and visually pleasing aesthetics.
Keithian gives it his all as he closes out the summer with a bang, the first of many tracks found on his latest EP, ‘Green Clouds.’
The video is also dropping in time to pay homage to Keithian’s roots and the commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which is observed each year from Sept. 15- Oct. 15.
