Vevo, the world’s leading music video network, today released breakout ATL rapper Latto’s second performance in her LIFT series, “Sunshine,” off her critically acclaimed sophomore album 777 that was released in March of this year via RCA Records. “Sunshine” follows Latto’s previous Vevo LIFT performance of “Stepper.” The recent BET “Best New Artist” winner has also previously worked with Vevo for Ctrl performances of 777’s “Wheelie” and “Trust No Bitch,” and a Ctrl At Home performance of “Youngest N Richest” from her 2020 album, Queen of Da Souf.
Vevo’s LIFT program connects today’s up-and-coming and most relevant artists to audiences around the world through music video content. Launched in 2011, Vevo’s artist development program shines a spotlight on the world’s freshest new talent. Vevo LIFT alumni include the likes of Doja Cat, Jorja Smith, Givēon, Olivia Rodrigo and more.
“We’ve loved working with Latto on her previous Vevo Ctrl performances, and were so pleased to partner with her again on her LIFT campaign,” says Jordan Glickson, Vice President, Music & Talent, Vevo, “Seeing her blossom from one of the world’s best emerging talents into the superstar that she is today has been such a privilege. Her drive, passion, enthusiasm and creative know-how made this campaign all the more exciting for us to collaborate with her on. We have no doubt that her raw talent and determination will take her even further, and are thrilled to be a part of her journey to the top.”
Vevo closely collaborated with Latto to build a world based on transformation. Inspired by the metamorphosis that flowers go through as they grow. After trudging through the dirt in “Stepper’s” earthy, gritty set, “Sunshine” let’s Latto bloom. Clad in head to toe pale yellow, she wanders through a field of sunflowers – a beautiful, poetic nod to her growth as an artist, while still acknowledging her roots.
