The youngin’ (17!) Maurice drops debut visuals via “Lift Off” from his debut EP Paramount. Here’s the official blurb:
“Lift Off” is a lyrical masterpiece, bringing the listener through a visual, metaphorical journey of how lonely one’s ascension to success can be without the love of their life fully supportive by their side. Top model Lauren Orosz, depicted sparingly and very distant in the video, is often in Maurice’s shadow while he’s at the forefront singing, “…’cause it burns like Mars when your love’s this far, the universe don’t see us together.”
Visually, “Lift Off” switches back and forth between a clean, all-white backdrop to a smokey, dark ambience providing the perfect disposition to the lyrical picture Maurice paints. All in all, the high-school senior is buckling up for a busy summer and “Lift Off” is the perfect debut single for what will be a long successful career in the industry.
Production: RetroFuture Production Team (Maurice, Auracle, Goldstripes) and Arthur McArthur (Drake, “Uptown”; Pusha T, “Trust You”; Kelly Rowland, “This Is Love”).
