Vince Staples just released the video for the single “Magic.” “Magic” is the lead single from his forthcoming album “Ramona Park Broke My Heart”, which will be released next month via Blacksmith Recordings/Motown Records. The video, directed by Prettybird’s Kenten, comprises a succession of one-take images with camera movement that depict Vince’s day from a surrealist perspective, allowing the audience to perceive everything around him as if they were an observer. “Magic”, produced by Mustard, is a celebration of how Staples overcame the inner city blues and a system to keep him enmeshed in the adversity he grew up in. “Ramona Park Broke My Heart” is the follow-up to Staples’ critically acclaimed 2021 self-titled album, which introduced fans to his hometown Long Beach, CA as well as intimate friends and family. Staples was a support act on Tyler, the Creator’s 34-city North American Call Me If You Get Lost tour earlier this month, which also included Kali Uchis and Teezo Touchdown. Staples recently released his first graphic novel, Limbo Beach, via Z2 Comics. It follows the journey of the newest member of the Wunderlosts, a band of misfit teenage raiders, on a journey to discover the truth about the park and himself, in a tale that’s equal parts Lord of the Flies and The Warriors. The novel was co-written by industry veterans Bryan Edward Hill, Chris Robinson and Buster Moody. Watch the “Magic” video below.
