Kid Cudi has released the video clip of his single “She Knows This”, a song from his new album, Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, which will be released on Friday, December 11th.
The clip “She Knows This” is the first part of a two-part narrative short film on the music of Man on the Moon III. The whole project has been directed by Nabil, and the second part should arrive next week on Cudi’s YouTube channel.
The first part of the story is called “The Rager, The Menace” and shows Cudi on a bender. Alternating between alcohol and grass, Cudi watches Will Smith’s 2006 drama, The Pursuit of Happyness, and at one point Smith seems to speak directly to him: “Wow, Scott, really? This is where we’re at? Listen, brother, too many moons have passed, get off this couch and go chase your destiny”.
Apparently Smith re-recorded this part of the dialogue for the video. So the singer decides to follow Will Smith’s advice…the end is as tragic as it is uncertain. See you in the next episode !
