Reggie Becton – SadBoy

PG County crooner Reggie Becton is fully immersed in a renewed sense of self in his latest music video “SadBoy”. As he quarrels about the objective right or wrong that exist beyond his personal wants and wishes, the EP title track is a fully-formed display of Becton’s appreciation for iconic cinematic works like Kill Bill and The Dark Knight trilogy.

Directed by Becton’s longtime creative collaborators, Chris Felix and Sir Thurston, the “Sadboy” video finds him on the prowl for love, frantically speeding through the city as he searches high and low for his other half. As he comes to grips with conflicting thoughts of calling it quits or finishing what he started, the visual is an encapsulation of the heated battle between the heart and mind.

On the inspiration behind “Sadboy,” Becton shares “This is the introduction to the Sadboy universe, and it’s all about looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Just last week, Becton unveiled the 8-track opus, Sadboy, Vol. 1. A euphoric journey through passion, pain, and everything in between, the fresh release brings clarity to what being “in love” feels like. In return, Vol. 1 is celebrated for its rawness and authenticity, as evidenced by the outpouring of support received from media outlets such as Consequence of Sound, Def Pen, Rated R&B, HotNewHipHop, UPROXX, and VIBE to name a few. The latter describes Becton as someone who “embraces the ebb and flow” of our emotions.

1. Sadboy
