JMSN Has A ‘Good Ol’ Case Of The Blues’ In ‘Cruel Intentions’


JMSN  just released the visuals for his latest single "Cruel Intentions" and follow-up track "Good Ol' Case of the Blues." Along with the video, he's also debuting a new look. We fondly referred to him as the doppelgänger of Jesus 0f Nazareth (or maybe early Robin Thicke), but now the Michigan-born singer has a close cut and an even closer shave. It's a fitting look for the smooth track he delivered a few days ago, which is the perfect breakup soundtrack and is perhaps best enjoyed with a strong drink in hand. In the one-shot video, JMSN is up close and personal the entire eight minutes and you can feel the frustration and anguish he expresses in the track as it's written all over his face in the beautiful high-definition video. The visuals also make you feel like you've had a taste of whatever JMSN's been sipping on, with its strategically placed scratched window and blurry filter during some of his most vulnerable moments.

At the end of the video, its clear he's been priming his sorrows with some libations as the audio turns into a conversation at a bar. Don't miss his monologue around the six-minute mark, which he mouths intermittently to hold your attention for just a few extra minutes.

"Cruel Intentions" is the first single from JMSN's upcoming album It Is, which drops May 6th. It's currently available for pre-order on iTunes now. If you want more of what he's serving, you can catch JMSN live on his tour, which kicks off in Las Vegas on his release date. Check out his tour dates below and watch his emotion-filled visuals for "Cruel Intentions" and "Good Ol' Case of the Blues" right here.
