JMSN has us more than excited for his third studio album It Is, set to drop in just a few days on May 6th. So far he’s dropped three amazing singles from the project with “Hypnotized” being the most recent- the track starts off as a satisfying blend of reggae and soul, rich with heavy bass, horns and plenty of vocal harmonies (JMSN never fails on that account). JMSN flips “Hypnotized” about half way through, seamlessly transforming the song into sensual R&B banger. Luckily, it didn’t take JMSN long to drop visuals for the track.
The music videos for the songs from this upcoming album have been decidedly more visually minimalistic than what we’re used to from JMSN. “Most Of All” was a vignette of JMSN showing off his dance moves, his quartet of strings and ballerinas. These visuals for “Hypnotized”are still minimal but in a different way. Songstress Arima Ederra joins JMSN both on the track and in the video- the two are chilling in the back yard under the sun with an eclectic group of friends. The visuals are an epitome of a lazy summer day and fit the laid back reggae centered track. Once the beat flips, JMSN shows off his now infamous dance moves on a roof top.
