Devin Morrison first caught our attention on Phonte’s Pacific Time EP. After teasing us with his talent, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist released his debut album Bussin’ last month to let us show us he’s not a fluke but the truth. He continues his assault on hearts and minds with the first single and video from the project, “No.”
On “No,” Devin is letting a woman who passed him up that she can keep on moving. “I think you better lower your hopes, think you better give up the ghost,” he sings, going through the motions with someone trying to ease their way back into his life. But Devin ain’t no fool. He’s leaving shorty with the vapors and gas face. The laid-back production sounds like a ‘90s Uptown Records track, with its deep bass line, snares, synth and Morrison’s smooth vocals.
The throwback vibe continues in the video, directed by Robb Klassen. The clip starts with Devin waking up to a “Hey, Big Head” text. He gives a slight smile before breaking into song and stating the facts of why he and she will never be. In fact, Devin continues on with the rest of his day, enjoying life, getting a haircut, chilling with friends and giving us his best ‘90s bop while stunting on a rooftop.
Hit play below to learn why Devin Morrison's “No” is definitely a yes.
