Hip hop artist, songwriter and producer Luke Boyd – better known as CLASSIFIELD – shares his latest acoustic single and video for ‘Accept It’ (Retrospected) featuring Brett Matthews, the third release from the anticipated RETROSPECTED, his forthcoming hip hop acoustic album due out later this spring.
Directed by The Boyd Brothers, the video for ‘Accept It’ (Retrospected) unveils a real-life account of some of the everyday hard ships, experiences, and losses one may encounter in life. The narrative (penned by Classified) explains that while it’s an understatement to say that dealing with grief or loss is painful, there comes a time that we must ‘accept it’ and with a little effort, try to move on in life.
About the song, Classified shares, “This is a song I wrote after watching friends go through similar situations in real life. I think we all know someone that has lost a loved one to cancer and we’ve seen how that loss affects the friends and family around them in a variety of ways. At some point in life, we realize that we will mourn the loss of a loved one, which is a painful experience, but we know that we must ‘accept it’ and find a way to keep on living for those that are still here and for ourselves.”
“In the video I really wanted to portray that sentiment in the first verse. And, in the second verse, I speak about men and women who have had to go away to fight wars and defend our country, and then return home and have difficulty dealing with life after war – where often the small everyday life problems don’t compare to the things they have witnessed and gone through. It can’t be easy, and I wanted to capture those feelings in this video.”
