Up and coming singer-songwriter takes a look back at past love in his latest music video.
19-year-old singer-songwriter Louis Knight takes a mature and nostalgic look at the past in his latest music video for "Just Kiss Me."
The British native shared that this song and the video were inspired by the memories that resonated when dealing with the aftermath of a long-term relationship. "I started writing this song going into my senior year of high school and I had just gotten out of this very long relationship. I hadn't really hung out or spent time with my friends in a long time so we went down to the beach in Jersey and I really wanted to capture that moment. That's kinda why this video looks back at this past relationship and intercuts with different scenes."
The video begins with Knight looking pensively at a polaroid picture of himself and an absent woman. After breaking out of this daydream, viewers are shown Knight on a stage, playing an intimate show for his friends and fans. His smooth, warm vocals guide us through the story of his previous relationship with intercut scenes of him and the girl in the photo spending their days and nights together at the beach.
The visuals are full of heartwarming moments that coincide with Knight's carefully crafted lyrics, especially poignant lines like, "We've intertwined our souls." This leaves us all the more heartbroken when we see the couple part and all the more relieved when we see their reunion in the "present" at Knight's performance. With its captivating storytelling and alluring instrumentation and vocals, "Just Kiss Me" is a strong indicator of Knight's ability to be an unapologetically vulnerable and honest musician.
This music video marks the beginning of an era for Knight. This fall the singer will be releasing his debut EP, Small Victories, which will touch on topics like relationships, loss, suicide, and hope. His next single, "Change," is due to be released this September before the release of the full EP.
"I first started writing songs when I was fourteen," shared Knight. "I think since then I've made leaps and bounds with my songwriting, and this EP that is coming out in the fall is full of very diverse tracks. I'm really excited for people to hear them all, and I hope that the messages in the tracks resonate with people."

Current owner Jeff Lowe claims there are bodies, including "a young American Indian boy," buried on the property
It was recently reported that Carole Baskin had been awarded the property of the Tiger King Zoo—formerly the G.W. Zoo—in Wynnewood, Oklahoma after a judgment found in her favor.
As fans of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King will know, her long-standing legal feud with Joe Exotic (AKA Joseph Maldonado-Passage, né Shreibvogel) over his violation of the Big Cat Rescue trademark resulted in a million dollar settlement in her favor. But for the most part Exotic managed to dodge paying Baskin through a series of illegal property transfers that temporarily protected his animal park from seizure.
Now that Exotic is in prison for attempting to have Baskin murdered—along with illegal animal trafficking and several violations of the Endangered Species Act—a judge has finally ruled that the park is hers, and she will be taking over ownership of the 16-acre property later this year. But Jeff Lowe—the park's current owner and the personification of a mid-life crisis—insists that there are no hard feelings, saying, "She deserves this property."

The singers magnetic hit, which debuted at No. 1 on this day in 1967, still fiercely resonates
On this day in 1967, Aretha Franklin's "Respect" debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts. The Otis Redding re-imagining would become the definitive song of the 1960's Civil Rights and Feminist Movements.
At just 24-years-old, the soon-to-be Queen of Soul took a song that was a desperate plea for companionship and transformed it into a cutthroat demand for equality. "Come to me for I'm begging, come to me for I'm begging, darling," Redding howls in his version. "Your kisses, sweeter than honey," Franklin croons on her re-imagining almost in direct response. "And guess what? So is my money." When Franklin's version continued to grow in popularity, Redding felt both emasculated and proud. "The next song is a song that a girl took away from me. A good friend of mine." Redding said playfully before diving into his rendition during his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival.
