Morray Heads to Confessional in the Affecting Video for “Mistakes.”
One of the biggest breakout stars of the year, Morray differentiates himself from the pack with the passion evident in his sharp lyricism and emotional singing. Hot on the heels of becoming an XXL Freshman for 2021, Morray shares the video for “Mistakes,” a highlight from his debut album Street Sermons.
Produced by Dystinkt Beats & SephGotTheWaves, “Mistakes” finds Morray adjusting to his new life as a rap star, showing off his church-trained vocal runs as he promises not to forget where he came from: “Pockets full of hundreds, never thought that I could have it/Living my best life, stress free, finally happened/Don’t gotta cap shit, now I’m making it off of rapping/Eating good, went from ramen to Wagyu with my salads,” spits Morray.
Directed by Christian Breslauer, who teamed up with Morray for recent videos for “Can’t Use Me” and “Nothing Now,” the clip for “Mistakes” evocatively illustrates the themes in Morray’s lyrics. Morray starts the video in the confession booth, before he sits down for a conversation with his past self, showing him what could change in his life if he works hard and keeps at it.
“Mistakes” is the latest in a line of high-quality visuals that started with “Quicksand,” recently certified GOLD by the RIAA, which peaked at #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in the Top 10 of both YouTube’s US Music Video Chart and the Urban Radio airplay chart.
