There is a ton of new music that gets released every week. It can be really hard to keep track of which artist drops what and sometimes listeners can miss out on some really good music and their accompanying videos.
Visuals to a song can add a layer of storytelling that just the track alone can’t hint. They can also give viewers a visual reference as to the vibe of the song.
