MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW
"Smile” by Bryan Stars
Written by: Kassandra
It’s crazy to think how the man behind the camera has traded his interview questions for lyrics and shooting music videos. Bryan Stars has done just that. The YouTube star used to interview bands and make people laugh with outrageous pranks and interviews, but all that has changed. Now that Bryan has created the My Digital Escape team, he has decided to use his voice for the better by promoting positivity through his very own music.
Two days ago saw the release of BryanStars’ newest music video for his song, ‘Smile’, which is available on his latest EP, 'Follow Your Dreams'. Who knew that Bryan had such incredible vocals?! It’s definitely not what anyone would expect of the blogger but the change, much like his image and message, has been positive. ‘Smile’ is a song that encourages people going through tough times to do just as the title suggests, to smile. The song talks about staying strong in the face of trials and tribulations and never backing down, which is important in the world we live in today. So many people of all ages face hardships in their life and using media such as music as an escape, it’s inspiring to know that some music has incredible impactful qualities.
The song was slower and though the tone was different than what some may have expected, the lyrics were powerful on their own and Bryan’s vocals gave life to the message and overall genuine feel of the song. I believe it’s something people of many ages and backgrounds can resonate with in an influencing, galvanizing and stimulating manner.
Well done to Bryan on this track! I give this is a solid 8/10 for the message, creativity and presentation of the video, which fit the song accordingly. You can buy this track on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify. Give it a listen and tell us what you think!
