In what is by all accounts either a hung-over trance or a flashback pipedream – or possibly more precisely, a blend of both – G-Eazy hits a gathering from apparently consistently in the visual for “Sober,” his joint effort with Charlie Puth.
The video opens with a bloodied G awakening in a heap of waste, before bumbling into a sepia-conditioned speakeasy, bemoaning on hungover days and alcoholic evenings as he raps, “I might regret this when tomorrow comes, but them drunk nights are more fun than sober ones.”
As the night (perhaps evenings) proceeds with, the rapper entices a ’50s housewife in a hot kitchen scene, and lets down his normally exceptionally smooth hair for a corrosive actuated outing at a ’60s local gathering. The changed style and decade-moving carries on as he plays a mobster-propelled pool player, and a ’90s rave kid who gets stuck in an unfortunate situation at a club, keeps running from the cops, and in the long run lands himself in a heap of waste – completing the repetitive time-play piece.
With respect to Puth, he remains to a great extent out of the video’s shenanigans, showing up for a couple of moments as he sings the chorale from on a rooftop.
The song originally dropped in December, and quickly climbed to No. 32 on the Billboard Digital Song Sales chart. The cut is the third single off the rapper’s latest album The Beautiful & Damned, which debuted at the No.1 spot on Top R&B / Hip Hop albums chart when it came out in December. Currently, G-Eazy is in the final week of the album’s corresponding tour, which is set to wrap at Radio City Music Hall on March 20.
