Home Bass > Mickey O’Brien – “Get My Girl Back Day” single & video

For the LOVE. That is what motivates Sudbury, ON-based rapper Mickey O’Brien to create music, his honest, no-bullshit rhymes about the actual trials of daily life. With the new single, “Get my Girl Back Day”, O’Brien marks a new era for himself as an artist. The first release from the upcoming 6-song EP Twin Flame – The Honey Bear Saga, produced entirely by Juno-nominated producer and live MPC button-masher Fresh Kils, “Get My Girl Back Day” meditates on what it means to be in love in the modern age. It’s an honest and open exploration of the challenges overcome on the twin flame soul journey to union, love and happiness.

And in true hip-hop style, like a beat maker with samples, Greenboots has chopped up romance film A Love Story, currently celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, to create the visuals for “Get My Girl Back Day”, including the addition of movie dialogue into the song. The video collage plays with classic and somewhat stereotypical images of what romance is, something a man like Mickey O’Brien rejects yet craves simultaneously.
