Skye is the first artist to sign to XXXTentacion’s label Bad Vibes Forever, which carries immense weight in itself. The late Florida rapper was shot in broad daylight in June of last year, but his legacy remains with us forever. Now, the 19-year-old returns with the official music video for “VOICES,” featuring XXX himself.
The record itself featuring vocals from XXX comes with endless memories and emotions, something Skye does not take for granted. “VOICES” was originally the first single to be released, flipping Blink 182’s classic hit record “I Miss You” from 2003.
“VOICES” arrives with that same introspective energy that reminds audiences that we all go through shit, it’s just a matter of overcoming it and keeping your head above water. For Skye, this record was written when he was in a dark place in his own head, having just got out of a relationship.
He states, “There was a period of time where it was hard for me to be still with my own thoughts and emotions. I tend to overthink the most late at night. I’ll stay up till 3, 4, 5 in the morning just overanalyzing shit and thinking too much.”
The animated visual sees Skye singing the lyrics to the hook: “At night I lie awake trying to fight the voices in my head / Visions of you, racing, racing, playing, it’s all inside my head.” The story unfolds as he continues to wear his heart on his sleeve, with XXX adding his personality through verse number two.
“VOICES” is just one of the many fire collabs the two have created in the studio… this one’s for XXX.
