“Ain’t nobody ever stayed before
You lookin’ like
You finna change it though
Like every thang
That I’ve been prayin for…”
Yesterday, Jacobi Ryan dropped the visuals for his Week 31 track, the EDM, trap sounding, (but definitely hip hop and RnB inspired), “Ever Since I Found You”.
The visuals are filled with a lot of special moments as Jacobi put a call out to fans and friends to submit their wedding engagement videos to include in the visuals for “Ever Since I Found You”. Jacobi said in his recent podcast that the track is all about falling in love, finding someone that holds you down and also respecting that and the visuals capture those sentiments perfectly. Also, there is no “fake love”, or even any hint of mushiness from Jacobi here, as Image Line Studios created some real and abstract magic…
“A lotta people want to frame stories”…
With its contemporary and thought provoking art exhibits, the 21c Hotel Museum in Oklahoma City, OK interestingly enough served as the beautiful location for the video shoot. Using the wedding engagement videos, Image Line Studios cleverly replaced and framed the videos in the existing gallery artwork at 21c thus, making a sort of “love” exhibit (among the existing exhibits as seen below) that Jacobi admires as he tours the museum in a deep, peaceful, introspective mood.
The fact that the visuals and the slow, dreamy sound of the track seems to marry Jacobi’s tranquil space is truly the icing on the cake – as the energy seems to invoke the feelings of why and when the Universe seems to put some of us in the “eternal” endearing graces of our soulmate in the first place. We always want that feeling to last forever and remain that way. If love is meant to be, and it feels right, it’s meant to be. Y’all enjoy the video…
