JMSN continues to slay the shit out of every other artist who attempts to try and dethrone him as the current King of R&B, as today he unveiled the official music video for his amazing single “The One“, which is taken from his jaw-dropping “Pllajë” EP.
As with most JMSN videos, they normally require a bit of explanation to get the true meaning he is trying to convey, so I’ll let the man do that below. p.s. that vitiligo is so beautiful.
This video is about the boundaries we make. We’re afraid of change. We’re afraid of anything different. Perception of how thingsnshould be, becomes our reality.
Someone once told me we see other people for their actions, and ourselves as a projection of who we wanna be. Rather than face things as a whole, we base them around ourselves. Not sayin’ this is right or wrong its just what we do.
Everyone is beautiful. We’re all afraid of things we don’t understand. So we put up a wall; a defense mechanism. We tear down things we don’t understand, as if they’re wrong. Right and wrong is relative. To each their own.
This song is about wanting to find someone or something that could be the answer to all your problems, but questioning it; because deep down inside you know the only one that can solve the problems you have is yourself. When it comes down to it, you make the problems you have. Something is only a problem, if you decide to make it one. So you try to convince yourself that this person will be the answer, when you know deep down no one person is the answer.
You feel this spark. This drug sinks in and tells you “You’re perfect right here.”, but you slowly start to realize; anywhere you are…you’re still with yourself. You can’t get away from your problems, because you make your problems.
Bottom line: Things are only what you make them.
