SonReal’s “bananas” Video Is an Influencer Cautionary Tale
The new single arrives ahead of a U.S. tour alongside Andy Mineo, which kicks off September 21 in Denver.
With tours kicking off left and right, the latest exciting announce comes from SonReal, who’ll be hitting the road this fall alongside Andy Mineo for a slew of U.S. dates. And along with the news, SonReal is sharing a new track to get fans excited—the bouncy, witty “bananas” boasting a beat that’s just that. “All I remember with creating ‘bananas’ was absolutely losing my mind in the studio,” he shares. “I did, like, five verses on that song just because the beat slapped so hard. It’s one of those records you want to perform live as soon as it’s recorded.”
The stage-ready track is outdone only by its video, which sees the artist attempting to step into the world of influencers, only to be thwarted with every stab at viraldom. SonReal’s non-stop flow gets paired with images of him lightning himself on fire, faking engagements and exotic vacations, getting KO’d, and ultimately learning he’s unable to fly (literally, but maybe also figuratively). Check out the video below, and scroll on for a full list of stops for the Return to Neverland Tour (tickets available here).
