Serena Isioma has been absolutely dominating our airwaves lately, and we’re loving every second of it. The 20-year-old Chicago-based newcomer fuses together R&B, hip hop, indie, and lo-fi soundscapes in a way that only she could possibly think of. Hot off the release of her stunning debut EP, The Leo Sun Sets, Isioma is keeping the momentum going with her wholesome new video for “Meadows in Japan.”
“Meadows in Japan” is already such a mesmerizing beauty, and now Isioma has added a visual element to let us experience this fantastic track in another way. At a time when we’re advised to refrain from seeing our friends, the “Meadows in Japan” narrative highlights an unbreakable friendship that makes us wish times were different. Whether or not Isioma and her friend reunite, the “Meadows in Japan” video is a must watch.
On the “Meadows in Japan” video, Serena Isioma shared,
“The ‘Meadows in Japan’ music video follows two friends doing the most to see each other. I feel like now more than ever it’s hard to keep in touch with our friends. Hopefully people will see this video and know that they’re not alone. We’re all alone together.”
