The Nūes (‘the news’) stands for ‘never underestimate extraordinary souls.’ An inspiring and potent message, driven by quite an unbelievable backstory of hope and perseverance, has led this artist to the here and now with more motivation than ever before.

Every frame encapsulates the rawness and whole essence of the meaning behind the song. Emotional, real- life protest footage combined with a passionate, up-close-and-personal performance. His head held down and covered by a westernised hat throughout, capturing even more feeling for the oppression and violence that has been apparent all of these years throughout ongoing systemic racism.
