Trendsetter is thrilled to be working with 2X Grammy nominated DJ and producer Steve Aoki again on the release of the priceless and blatantly truthful video for “Pretender” featuring multi-platinum selling hip-hop recording artist Lil Yachty and pop-indie trio AJR.
Watch it here!
Aoki’s blatantly honest new single paired with his video highlights the impulses of social media users. The video sets up straightforward scenarios that mimics the everyday experience of scrolling through your own Instagram feed. Expressing and their need to be ‘trendy’ and keep up a certain image of themselves online, the video shows the contradiction between real life and how people portray their lives online. The song repeats the line “I’m a good pretender” and shows the unhealthy defiance of our true selves on social media.
This video is one that will certainly make you think twice about how your own social media feed and posts. Aoki, AJR, and Lil Yachty certainly portray through their lyrics and storytelling that being yourself is best.
