Shacar: "chances" - New MV!

Shacar and Icon Generation's James Abers link up to shoot the scenes for his newest music video "CHANCES"!

The Florida native, New York-based artist has started to become a hot topic in the underground. With his soulful raps and melodic beats, Shacar radiates an energy, unlike any other artist.

We took a closer look into his new single "CHANCES" and got a quick chance to learn a bit about the story behind the track.

"the track was inspired by a lit’ quarantine night..haha the first song I made during the lockdown. I felt like I was in a creative block thinking about how we gonna get to the top. I just wanted to encourage, remind and feel myself a little. To not take any chances.. yet take all the chances."

Shacar being a great storyteller fully tells that exact story in the track. Starting off with the uneasy feelings of stressed-out thoughts then subtly shifting to a more positive mindset of hustle and patience.

The "CHANCES" music video showcases that same story with a slightly different inspiration.

"The video was inspired by the story of Jesus in the wilderness."

He explained...

"With everything happening in the world, it feels like we’re fighting that same battle. So we wanted to tell that story in a modern way. "

James Abers is known for his cinematography skills and for his ability to bring a story to life within a music video. He's not just your typical videographer with a high-quality camera and flashy angles. With his skills, James really brought Shacar's vision to life.

The music video really gives the track a more sophisticated story and a more serene energy.

Shacar and James Abers did an amazing job bringing the track to life. Personally, it's one of the best music videos we've seen in a while.
