Video of the Week: Jhené Aiko’s Eternal Sunshine

Jhené Aiko’s latest visual for “Eternal Sunshine” evoked so many emotions inside of me. Many of her songs do, which is why I believe that she is an excellent singer and songwriter. How she blends beauty, pain, and sadness so seamlessly is beyond me, but what added the extra heart tug was having a music video that reinforces her artistic vision.

Director Jay Ahn did a really great job with this video. He keeps the viewers interested by slowly unfolding the story in bites until you realize that she is still mourning the death of her beautiful brother.

Check out Eternal Sunshine and share your thoughts below.
