Valentine's Day might be over, but it doesn't mean that you have to stop celebrating love—romantic or otherwise. Luckily, Toronto's McCallaman just dropped a sweet video that will inspire you to do just that. While he first made his name as a beatmaker, producing tracks such as Goldlink's "When I Die," his album It Takes Two showed and proved he's nice as a singer/songwriter as well. Now he's released the first visual to support the project with a colourful and lighthearted video for "You Got A Friend."
The track riffs on James Taylor's classic "You've Got A Friend," and McCallaman tell us that the visual illustrates "the ups and down’s of a relationship. Be it platonic or romantic, there’ll always be a tender level of respect and admiration for one another through the good and bad." The video was directed by Toronto-based cinematographer Mark Klassen.
As you may have guessed from the title, It Takes Two (which released in September 2017) examines the wins and woes that two people in a relationship often experience, with themes of self-discovery, Black love and the struggle for balance and harmony woven in. Be sure to take in the "You Got A Friend" video above, and then listen to the rest of It Takes Two on your favourite streaming platform.
