As he prepares his upcoming album Black On Purpose, Salaam Remi is tapping some of his frequent collaborators to be part of the project. We've already heard what he's done with DJ D-Nice and Teedra Moses and Bilal. Now he looks to actor/singer Mack Wilds, whom he's worked with since Mack's 2013 debut, to bring a little heart to the project with "Home Vacation (FamilyOverEverything)."
"Home Vacation" finds Mack singing about the joys of being home with the ones you love. "Home vacation / No room in bed / Where I'm gonna take this / You might wanna stay," he sings on the simple chorus as chords and twinkling keys provided musical accompaniment. While the sentiment of the lyrics is sweet, what really drives things home is the song's video. It's directed by Mack himself and features home footage of the artist along with his partner Christina Hammond and their lovely baby girl Tristyn. The visual takes on the grainy quality of old home movies as we watch the young parents spend some quality time bonding with their precious bundle of joy. While Mack and Christina make appearances, it's Tristyn who's the real star as we watch adorable footage of the little one hamming it up for the camera with gummy grins.
Short and sweet, "Home Vacation (FamilyOverEverything)" reminds us of the important things as we deal with this unusual time. Stream the single via Spotify below and then stick around to watch Mack Wilds and his family in the song's endearing video.
