Eric Roberson Tugs At Heartstrings With ‘Still’

Unless you just started reading SoulBounce yesterday, then you should know how I feel about Eric Roberson. The object of my Errobsession can do no wrong. He's the man and everything that he touches is golden. The end. It's really not up for debate. But in the event that you need further proof, then I present to you his brand-spanking new video for the song "Still" from his last release, Music Fan First. Erro starts off at a nightclub looking lost and out of sorts while everyone around him parties it up. He leaves and we see him flashing back to happier times with the object of these lyrics. Just when you think that the video is going in one direction, he flips the script with a heart-wrenching twist that culminates in an emotional dénouement. I was privileged to see a preview of this video a few weeks ago and in a room full of people,
the ending had me in tears. I'm telling you right now, have a box of tissues nearby. Beautifully done by Chris & Blaq of Impakt Studios out of Chicago (who also shot the "Dealing" video), you'll start seeing this tonight on my favorite station VH1 Soul and also on Centric. Enjoy and reach out and touch someone you love afterward.

  1. I watched the Live premiere on UStream, the end of the video is complete shocker but the first half is completely what I envisioned while singing along with this amazing song.
    Music Fan First is the BEST CD ever.

  2. You know i feel exactly the same about my dear Butta. Great write up.
    e

  3. Chi-town loves Erro, the rest of the country betta catch up! Wonderful video and love the song & new CD!

  4. Nice open feel to the groove on this one. I like that.

  5. Erro knows how to catch us tripping. He did the same the in the liner notes of Esoteric for "Newborn Child." Did anybody else notice his parents are in the video?

  6. Crazy beat....love it. The video does take you for a turn. Like the thought put into it and the message.

  7. great concept behind the video. life is too short and many people need to realize that. great album. keep up the good work erro

  8. Was that a Rick Ross cameo @1.24 in the club? Had tears rollin down my eyes by the end of the video when I realised what was going on. Grown men dont cry but when it hits home this hard...dayumnn Erro!

  9. This video is indeed quite touching! Kudos to everyone involved in it...I SEE U Paul! 🙂

  10. Very powerful video. The video concept fits the song perfectly.

  11. You can always appreciate a video that does a good job telling a story that's actually in line with the song...Great job all around...most definitely looking forward to more of his videos...

  12. Quickly whipping away waterfilled eyes. Man that was a sad videao. Very well done. I see why he felt lost early in the video. Good job ER.

  13. How dare you Eric Roberson (and you too Soulbounce) have me up in here crying and being emotional.

  14. Quality video. Still sniffling/wiping tears. Errobsession? Like it!

  15. I already had visuals with the song but the video took it to another level. Great job doing a tasteful video highlighting breast cancer awareness!

  16. Love Erro but didn't Maxwell start the trend with the Fistful of Tears benefit . Jus' sayin', great concept but not original.

  17. Wow. Love the turn that the video took. Had me tearing up. Great way to spread awareness. My mom is a breast cancer survivor so I definitely can appreciate this.

  18. @Michael C: As Chad Ochocinco would say, CHILD PLEASE.
    Raising breast cancer awareness isn't a "trend." Nor is it something that Maxwell started. Furthermore, we're talking about Erro's music video here, which is quite original compared to Maxwell's video for "Fistful of Tears" if you really want to go there.

  19. 1st: Love the video, very powerful, good stuff
    2nd: I have listened to this CD at least 100x's and the lyrics (IMO), don't match this video. The song is about breaking up with your girl, and still having feelings for her. He is "pining" over this girl

  20. I love that the video takes you slightly off course from what you would expect without being completely off the song concept. Erro strikes once again!
