Five months after the release of his latest album, ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’, Kendrick Lamar has finally released the footage for the project’s fan-favorite song, ‘We Cry Together’. Kendrick Lamar, co-starring actress Taylour Paige, submitted a short film for the piece embodying his passionate dialogue.
Shortly after ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ was released, Taylor Paige revealed that there was a short film to go along with ‘We Cry Together’ and in June it was exclusively screened in Los Angeles for other celebrities and industry insiders. Kendrick Lamar fans have been waiting on the edge of their seats ever since, anticipating when the official images will be released to the general public.
In the short film, both Kendrick and Taylor visually represent the track’s aggression and hostility that was previously something fans could only imagine while initially listening to it on the album. Minutes after the film’s release, it became a huge trending topic on social media, sparking intense debate.
Although Kendrick Lamar just released ‘We Cry Together’ this year, the short film for the song was recorded live on March 15, 2020, which was at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was directed by Dave Free, co-founder of pgLang with Kendrick, along with Jake Schreier.
In other Kendrick news, he was previously one of the most nominated artists at this year’s MTV VMAs.
