Young Leaf, an artist originating from suburbs of Pennsylvania recently spoke with us about his “Like No One” music video and how it wasn’t initially supposed to happen. Young Leaf had other plans to work on his music video for his other single “Come Thru” featuring D’ajah and D Kirk (KV). The meaning behind “Like No One” is learning from his mistakes because he feels like he never learns from them. We spoke with Leaf regarding the plot and he told us, “my friend kept telling me to ask this girl out on a date since he had a crush on her for three years”. When he finally had the courage to ask her out, Leaf was left heartbroken by a message that put him in a bad place for a few months. Every song he records has a meaning behind it, whether it be from his life experiences or situations he’s currently in.
There’s more meaning to the video than what was depicted. Leaf told us that he doesn’t want to speak about it because “it’s done and over with and I just want to move on to a different chapter in my life”. The “Like No One” music video is filmed, directed, and edited by Ajoutloud. The director, Ajoutloud, wanted Leaf to have emotion during this shoot because of the deep meaning behind it. Leaf and Aj teamed up to make a different vision come true compared to the other videos that they had done in the past year. When people watch the “Like No One” music video, Leaf wants them to know that everything will be fine and the things that we go through are just lessons. Leaf is also a basketball coach so he wants the younger generation to know that they should believe in themselves even if the majority do not support the things you do in life.
