Daniel Caesar and Mustafa have a craving for the better days of their past. The two take a journey down memory lane in the new music video for “Toronto 2014.”
The visual, shared on Tuesday (May 30) provides a glimpse of the 28-year-old’s life, including flights with his friends and playing guitar. Footage and photos of his childhood are scattered throughout the video as well, which further the dichotomy of the present-day singers enjoying the spoils of the current times while reflecting on the lives that they used to live.
Mustafa delivers the first verse, singing “If I could only find my way through space-time/ Back to when I was happy being me/ They live and we-” before Caesar jumps in and cuts him off, though he continues the theme of reminiscing. “I can hear the bells ringin’, remindin’ us why/ We’re still here singin’, it’s Father Time/ We’re stuck in The Matrix, living a lie/ I’m not afraid to die.”
“Toronto 2014” is the latest music video from Daniel Caesar’s third studio album Never Enough. The 15-track LP came out in early April and features Ty Dolla $ign, Omar Apollo, and Serpentwithfeet. It was followed by an additional three tracks on the bonus version days later, with Summer Walker appearing on “Always” and Rick Ross on “Valentina.”
