Mr. P's New Music Video For 'Look Into My Eyes' Is Life

Mr. P gets real with fans in the final installment of his mini music video series, "Look Into My Eyes" and we are feeling it.

The gifted Mr. P returns to us with another dope single and music video with his latest track, "Look Into My Eyes." Although disbanded from the superstar Naija duo group P-Square, Peter Okoye (Mr. P), continues to show that he is still talented as a solo artist.

This music video is a successful collaboration with amazing choreographer, Nonso Asobe, and was produced by Vtek. It's a part of Mr. P's mini music video series.

His new music video is life. No but really, in "Look Into My Eyes," Mr. P talks about his life as a musician with the use of insightful lyrics that compel you to want to revisit everything he's put out so far. He accompanies thought-provoking lines that make you second guess how you view not only him, but all your favorite successful artists, with the smoothness of rhythm guitar, the essence of R&B, and The Purge meets Michael Jackson's "Thriller" vibes.

He takes a completely artistic approach in this music video, having fun while dawning pierce, cat-like contacts, and leading an intimidating masked posey. Does his posey represent his personal demons, or his haunting past? We can't say for sure, but we do recognize that this track is Mr. P shining a light on himself to reveal his transparency through his work.

We dare you to try and hold back your inner desire to sway while you watch Mr. P's, "Look Into My Eyes." You can view the full music video below, now available on VEVO and iTunes.

Dying Lagoons Reveal Mexico’s Environmental Racism

In the heart of a traditionally Black and Indigenous use area in Southwest Mexico, decades of environmental destruction now threatens the existence of these communities.

On an early morning in September 2017, in a little fishing village in the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, called Zapotalito, thousands of dead fish floated on the surface of the Chacahua-Pastoría lagoons. A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
