I feel I’ve been fortunate to witness Lil Skies’ journey from the beginning. Having admired his consistent work ethic and enduring musical style since 2016, my recent encounter with him at the 2023 Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash festival reinforced not only his artistry but also his genuine and down-to-earth persona. This encounter added a personal touch to my appreciation for him, making his latest track and music video, “Wake Up,” all the more exciting to explore.
“Wake Up,” stands as a testament to his rigid relevance in a sometimes saturated music industry. True to form, Skies seamlessly blends his signature sound with modern production from Mvgnolia & Zerby to add a fresh feel. The result is a track that resonates with fans new and old alike.
The accompanying music video, helmed by the talented Tanner Hench, truly elevates “Wake Up.” Hench’s creative direction brings the track to life with mesmerizing cut scenes and transitions. The dreamlike color palette and unique effects synchronize well with the song’s energy, creating a visual that leaves a lasting impact. The video also provides an intimate glimpse into Lil Skies’ character, reaffirming his status as an icon within the Lyrical Lemonade community. His authenticity shines through, reinforcing the connection between artist and audience. “Wake Up” not only showcases Lil Skies’ musical evolution but also serves as a reminder of the enduring power of genuine talent and dedication.
