Mona Lisa

19-year-old Miah Travis from Chesapeake, VA has released a video for his soulful track Mona Lisa. The song is produced by Tokyo Trendz and the video is directed by Spencer Sease.

Mona Lisa has multiple meanings. For starters, the idea of the whole song is to paint a beautiful picture through your own struggles, thus the reason the cover art for the actual track is an open canvas. On the other hand, the story I decided to speak on was my growing up in the church, being troubled by my sinful ways, and rather distraught by the idea of religion. The idea of having to pay for a blessing is central to the track, as preachers tend to use offering as a source of exploitation, influencing believers to believe that in order to be blessed, I must be able to pay my way. This video is a bit artsy and rebellious, in a sense.” is what the artist had to say about his work in his own words.
