Montreal-born and New Jersey-raised artist, Love Mansuy, releases his new single “I’ll Be There” featuring his own son, Carter Mansuy. This new single had intentions of reflecting on his commitment to raising his son. When it came to making the video to match, they chose to “reflect on not only the need for black men to show up for their sons, but the need for black men to be there for black women.”
Love Mansuy is able to dig deep into his emotions to create this moving song. Bringing his son to feature the song only enhances the strength that lies in the bonds of families, which is so important in today’s society.
“I’ll Be There” creates a beautiful visual into just one individual’s life as a person in the black community. The needed scheme pans to a wall with the word “revolution” written bigger than all the rest. The stories that artists like Love and Carter Mansuy are bringing to life bring our nation a small step closer to dealing with the injustices that flood the black communities all over the nation. The problems are real, relevant, and won’t just go away.
