2015 has already been a stellar year for Los Angeles-based artist Gallant with publications like Billboard and NME labeling him the “breakthrough artist of 2015” and “the voice that will redefine R&B.” Ever since Zane Lowe introduced his track “Weight in Gold” to the world to kick off Apple’s Beats 1 radio launch, the record has exploded as one of the breakout smashes of 2015, accumulating over 15M total plays online.
Today, Gallant releases the long awaited music video for “Weight in Gold.” Simultaneously caught in a fiery burn and overwhelming storm, the music video captures the essence of Gallant: a complex paradox of feelings and expression. The video peers into his soul, delicately illustrating the song’s narrative of burden and his hunger to escape.
