Young Rog’s love won’t be on lockdown as he pulls out all the stops for his music video for “On The Road”. Directed by LVRN’s Carlon Ramong, the rapper-singer engages with his love interest from a distance but uses quarantine cheat codes like romantic Zoom backdrops, Dollar Tree cookout candles and rousing lyrics to bring new life to their love. Young Rog’s creative leaps while social distancing–like virtual yoga and smoke sessions– prove he has more than a few tricks under his sleeve. With FaceTime dates becoming a new normal during quarantine, Young Rog’s DIY visuals teach us a thing or ten about fostering love in isolation.
“On The Road” is the lead single from Young Rog’s forthcoming project under LoveRenaissance, who houses superstars like Summer Walker, 6LACK and DRAM–as well as DRAM’s label WAVER. Young Rog, also short for Young Roger, has seen success with “On The Road” as it racked up 581k spins on SoundCloud in a matter of weeks. A departure from his fluid bars, Young Rog proves he’s the next multifaceted voice in music. Young Rog is a passionate mental health advocate. He plans to bring a level of transparency and authenticity to both his music and his platform.
