Emerging hip-hop artist Cody Presley has released the music video to accompany his latest single “Before You Go” on his official YouTube channel today. Reflecting the song’s message of how difficult it can be to let go of someone close to your heart, the visual allows us to get an inside look at Cody Presley and the inner workings of his relationship. When discussing the inspiration behind the video for “Before You Go,” Cody Presley writes:
“Our inspiration for the Before You Go video comes from us wanting to portray that ‘What we once had, has ended.’ In the video you see an apartment with just me and it’s messy stuff everywhere symbolizing life is a mess in the current situation. The audience gets to see the home and family we built and the question is like ‘Do you want to throw it all away? Give up?’” – Cody Presley
