Take a look at Brent Faiyaz’s Quentin Tarantino-Inspired “Jackie Brown” Music Video

Brent Faiyaz's track titled "Jackie Brown" not only emerged as a favorite among his fans from his second album "Wasteland," but also played a pivotal role in shaping the entire album's direction. Throughout the creation of the album, Faiyaz found significant inspiration in Quentin Tarantino's crime drama film of 1997, "Jackie Brown," and decided to incorporate its essence into one of his own musical pieces.

Reflecting on this, the vocalist shared with Vogue last year, “I immersed myself in Tarantino's cinematic works, particularly 'Jackie Brown,' which I watched repeatedly. I also found myself engrossed in the film 'Vanilla Sky,' drawing considerable influence from these sources.”

Presently, a music video has surfaced for the aforementioned track, adeptly capturing the chic ambiance of the 1990s, reminiscent of the impactful movie. Directed by Lonewolf & Mark Peaced, the visual narrative commences with Faiyaz depicted against a backdrop suffused with crimson hues while aboard a flight. Upon his arrival, he swiftly embarks on a journey by car, leading him directly to a hair salon, where he seeks rejuvenation.

The chorus of the song resonates with the lyrics, “Mere hours have elapsed, yet they felt akin to days / A handful of days transpired, seeming akin to months / A year's absence, scarcely a line composed / Life accelerates when pursuing your desires.”
