R&B singer Sebastian Mikael dropped a new music video today for the song “Rain” from his latest EP “I C U U C ME PART II.” The video focuses on the ever-prevelant issues of depression and self-doubt, two issues very dear to the heart of the artist himself. 

Mikael first caught the attention of the industry and R&B lovers within his 2013 single “Last Night” featuring Wale, releasing his first EP  “Speechless” shortly after. Taking a few years off to spend time “experiencing life,” work on his sound, and deal with the passing of his best friend was the ignition that the musician needed to continue to pursue his craft full throttle. 

Now Mikael is back and more sure of himself and his sound. Last year, he released the first of his two part EP project “I C U U C ME PART I,” started a series of freestyle videos called “From Scratch,” and joined Lion Babe for a select dates on their Cosmic Wind tour this month.

The video for “Rain” is a clay animated representation, created by the artist duo Dare Dollz, of Mikael and his depression. In it, the artist sits in a dark room watching TV and scrolling through social media as the world moves around him, leaving him feeling trapped within the confines of his inner world, searching tirelessly for a way to break this bondage. 

“These days, social media plays a big role in depression; you’re constantly comparing yourself to others because you’re seeing what they have and what you don’t,” Mikael shared with office. “When the ‘likes’ don’t add up, it affects your entire mood, you start to think you’re not doing enough. Truth is—it’s an illusion that we create for ourselves.”
