palmtreeprince muses on romance in his latest single and video ’bout us — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
‘bout us documents the moment in a relationship when you contemplate what you have with the person you love. palmtreeprince wanted to represent that feeling of pondering the past, present and future of a relationship. “All my plans for us, my words of affirmation and encouragement, along with the adoration I have towards them — ‘bout us is that moment told in musical form,” he says.
Whilst palmtreeprince was working next door to his producer LVAE, the words “I been thinkin ‘bout us lately” came to him. “I kept singing it out loud whenever I’d hear LVAE working on it, and when the rest — ‘You’re the part of me I cling to daily’ — came to me, I got a text saying ‘I’ve had enough! This is the next track, get in the booth and cut it, let’s go!,’ now we have ’bout us.”
He hopes listeners remember that everyone has a cheerleader that is always supporting them, or maybe they’re the cheerleader to their loved ones. “If you have a cheerleader, always know that you have that lifeline, someone to help you through the tough times and celebrate you through your golden moments. If you are the cheerleader, delight in your devotion. I believe that says a lot about who you are. Don’t stop loving, supporting and cheering on the ones you love, it’s needed and appreciated more than you know.”
