Toosii returns with his first single of 2022, “Keeper” – a richly atmospheric track with hypnotic percussion that celebrates finding the one you want to grow old with.
Tender yet bristling with the realism and humor that are hallmarks of his music, the song reminds us that the 22-year-old Syracuse-born, Raleigh-based artist is indeed a “keeper” – an ever-evolving, ever-surprising career artist who grinds like he’s up next but has, in fact, already arrived.
“Keeper” is available for download / streaming HERE.
The official video for “Keeper,” explores what makes someone a “keeper.” Producer/director Brian Robles, who previously helmed the videos for Toosii’s “Sapiosexual” and “Shallow,” combines Toosii’s performance of the song with footage of several couples, at different stages of their relationships – including Toosii and his girlfriend Samaria – living out their love in real life.
“And we could grow old like Viv and Phil
It’s just something ’bout when I’m workin’, I can’t be sittin’ still
You gon’ tell me, “Chill” ’cause you nigga be in the field
I love you, take your time on me ’cause you know I’m gettin’ older,”– Toosii
He recorded “Keeper” in Atlanta with The Loopholes, who also collaborated with Toosii on his 2021 mixtape, Thank You For Believing. A deluxe edition of the mixtape, Thank You For Believing: The Manifestation, which included 10 additional original songs, later followed.
