Watch J Molley’s Music Video For ‘Flower Child’

J Molley takes a breather in his latest music video.

In his latest music video for his new song "Flower Child," J Molley takes a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. While the South African artist has shown himself many times as a person who enjoys his privacy, his previous videos have always been steeped in mystery.


On "Flower Child," however, the young hip-hop artist enjoys what's left of the autumn sun. He retreats to what looks like a resort, and even does yoga and a bit of martial arts.

The visuals are fitting for "Flower Child," a song in which J Molley sings on the chorus:

"Felling way too good I'm feeling liberated/ Know that you don't understand so you're just sitting hating/ I know that you're in pain that's why you're just complaining/ Just get on my plane/ There ain't no point in waiting"

"Flower Child" is the first song J Molley has released since the beginning of the year. Last year, he released the EP Leader of the Wave, a Playlist by J Molley, from which came the singles "Leader of the Wave" and "Lightning," which both got visuals.

J Molley is working towards an album, which is due for release later in the year. The artist hasn't stated whether the song will be part of the project.
