After making his Billboard Hot 100 debut for his feature on Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle” track, Giveon, the rising R&B star hailing from Long Beach, continues to enjoy a captivating debut run today with the release of the somber music video for an acoustic rendition of “Favorite Mistake,” a standout from his recently released Take Time EP. Watch the video now below.
The video, much like the song, takes the viewer on a sultry ride underneath the night sky as Giveon laments the complicated nature of a romantic relationship. “ This visual is special to me because I finally get a chance to paint a picture of one of my favorite songs” says Giveon. His vocals, which have already provided him with a banner moment in 2020—Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle”—cut through the record’s acoustic version with the type of emotional pang that’s become customary for the “The Beach” singer, providing the perfect backdrop for an evening joyride.
The sky’s the limit for Giveon, who has masterfully made the transition from songwriter to entertainer since he first began to dabble in music in the early 2010s. Take Time has received widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike and has amassed 2.5M US streams across all platforms since release earlier this year. His rapidly-expanding fanbase is already clamoring for a follow-up project across social media.
