Over the years, the industry has seen many artists emerge out of the historic city of New Orleans including industry greats and new era artists Master P, Birdman, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Dee-1, NBA Young Boy and now Pell.
Pell, a NOLA artist, is taking fans back to the classics by embodying the style of “Slow Jamz” a classic single of the early 2000’s by Jamie Foxx and Twista, with his new single “Throwback” featuring Chicago artist Saba. The record appears on his EP, Girasoul, which he released in December 2017.
Pell’s newest music video not only gives throwback vibes with the melody of the music but also the with the look. The music video was shot with a Super 8 camera giving vintage vibes to the scenery. The visual gives creative vibes as it showcases Pell in his “house,” however, the rooms in his “house” are surrounded amongst out of the norm environments of beaches, streets, and mountain peaks.
According to Pell, “Shooting the video was dope because it was the first time I was shooting this quality of a video with bystanders walking by watching me do it, You could say it was interactive in that way that most of my music videos aren’t.”
This dynamic of the video puts a viewer in needless to say a throwback mindset. Pell’s newest music video can be viewed below so take a ride in the time machine as you prepare for the throwback!
