If you had 48 hours in Atlanta, what would you get into? Would you take in the sights? Get involved in some of the local traditions? Maybe you’d meet a famous face or two. These are questions that we don’t have to ask Masego. That’s because he shows us exactly what he was up to during his recent trip to the city with the release of the official video for “Garden Party.”
The song, which also features Big Boi and JID, talks about an event that encompasses everything you can think of when it comes to a party. The video tries to replicate that feeling as Masego hits ATL for his performance at ONE Musicfest this past October. He starts the clip with a rehearsal session with his friends at Stankonia Studios, but the video shows us a barrage of footage from throughout the two days. That means we see him meet and greet with famous friends, cruise the streets with two baddies and even attend the halftime show of a high school marching band. While some of the shots here were obviously staged just for the sake of the clip, we get somewhat of an idea of what a day in the life of an artist like Masego is like while also getting a slight feel for the culture of Atlanta as a city.
Given his prolific penchant for releasing solo music and collaborations with fellow artists, we don’t expect Masego to be very quiet in the coming year. The visual for “Garden Party,” however, feels like a fitting closer to a pretty good run in 2021.
