The weather is FINALLY warming up around Chicago, so this smooth new video single A.M.N.R. from native son Neak is highly apropos: Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have our first “cruisin’ in the whip” banger of the Whip Cruising season. Neak didn’t wait for the warm weather to get his cruise on, and it is evident in the heavy breath condensation that is visible in many of the outdoor shots in this emblematic Aaron Perkins, Jr. directed video. That doesn’t mean this song shouldn’t conjure up a feeling of excitement for the warmer days in which this song would provide the perfect soundtrack for a trip down Lake Shore Drive on a sunny afternoon. The soulfully-crafted, sample-laden production by J-Rell lays some lush groundwork for Neak’s fluid double-time delivery and brings life to the visual presentation overall. Be sure to check for Neak’s upcoming project Paura/Amore. Sadly, A.M.N.R. won’t be on it, but that just means we can expect more good things from Neak down the line.
