In one of the deepest songs off of Joyner Lucas’ album 508-507-2209, “Forever”, he pens an open letter to his son. The song is a tearjerker already but with the release of the visuals, it will definitely hit you in the soft spot. Lucas’ is known for his vivid storytelling and visual lyrics, and this song will definitely strike a nerve in any parent or parent to be. The video stars his real son and while the video shows his son growing up at different stages of his life and Lucas’ being there for him as a father, the lyrics confess the side of him that didn’t want to be a parent.
Bars like “I wasn’t happy when she said she was pregnant/ Probably the worst news of my life, that shit was so depressing/I told her she should get an abortion and I really meant it/I’m sorry that I said that shit, yo I was trippin’” are juxtaposed by shots of him playing with his actual son. You could see the love of a parent in Joyner’s eyes, which keeps the authenticity of the visual in par with the song.
In conjunction with the title of his album, those that ended up texting his number (the album title) were able to get a private link prior to it being released to the public.
