“Never Be You” Premieres This Week
He stars as the two-timing “Miles” on Bounce TV’s “Saints & Sinners.”
But the Atlanta-native is also an accomplished singer, and has dropped a new video for his song, “Never Be You.” It’s the third single off of Robinson’s album, “Love Episodic.”
The video, which co-stars Tony Rock, sees Robinson and Rock interview potential new love interests in the club a la “Coming To America,” but with disastrous results. The video features moments from Robinson’s 12-minute short film, “The Greener Grass Experiment,” about a man who ends his relationship only to realize that there’s no one better out there for him.
Robinson spoke to us about the story behind the visual for the tune:
“I think it’s so easy now to swipe left, do your thing and be out,” Robinson said. “We’re such a transient society, so many social media images – were inundated, so it’s hard to connect with somebody or really have a reason to keep that connection. So the song explores what happens when you do that.”
What do you think of the new song?
