Keiynan Lonsdale Brought Sexy Black Boy Magic To New Single "Preach"
Keiynan Lonsdale is back with a new music single and it's all kinds of magical.
The Love, Simon star has been having a great year so far. Not only did he star in one of the year's most celebrated gay films, but he's also successfully branching out more into the world of music.
On that front, Lonsdale released a new song and music video at midnight titled "Preach."
While at a first glance, the song's lyrics seem to be about falling desperately in love, Keiynan Lonsdale says its more than that. He says the song's really about transcending oneself, and specifically himself, into the highest form of self-love.
“I wrote ‘Preach’ over a year ago.. but I didn’t know what it actually meant, or its significance to my life, until several months later,” Lonsdale told TheFader. “Both the song and the video have become like my mirrors, so everything good & bad that comes with one’s own reflection has of course presented itself through this project haha.”
The music video for the song reflects that in its two different sequences.
The video starts out with Lonsdale in a dark bar and dance room alone. He struts his stuff and dances seductively in that dark disco room before we're transported to a nature scene. There, shirtless Londsdale dances again but with a lighter and airier vibe.
