North London artist Bakar has returned this week with a new music video for “NW3,” from his debut album, Nobody’s Home. Watch it now below.
Contrasting with his recent video for “Free,” the video for “NW3” depicts the London artist in a more approachable, human light. Since the inception of his musical career, Bakar has been focused on broadening the understanding about the different experiences in pop culture: “I’ve always been here to be an alternative for the Black kids that don’t fit in.” The “NW3” video allows these kids to see that beyond the fame and glamor, he lives a life not too different from their own.
Bakar has been busy having recently come off the release of Nobody’s Home and gearing up for his 2022 Tour. Beyond music, he continues to support underrepresented creatives, having recently announced a limited edition CD designed by the late Virgil Abloh with all proceeds benefiting Abloh’s “Post-Modern” scholarship fund. Additionally, Bakar has announced Yeek will support all US tour dates, and a second Los Angeles date has been added to his U.S. tour due to popular demand, which kicks off April 27th in Seattle at the Neptune Theater.
