Jamie XX Finally Delivers Video For “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” Just In Time For Fall
Don’t be fooled by that weird humidity you feel in the air today: if you live on the East Coastor the Midwest or basically anywhere that is not the choking hot desert of Southern California and the Southwest, fall is here, whether you like it or not. With that in mind, here is Jamie XX’s video for what should have been this year’s song of the summer, “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times).” It’s a pleasant dance hall-inflected number, with Young Thug’s strangled chirp doing most of the lyrical heavy-lifting. Popcorn’s in there, too.
If you get interminably sad when the weather changes, the Super Blood Moon is making you feel some type of way and Facebook being down sent you into a rage spiral, heres what you’re gonna do: Put this on repeat, loud and hard in your headphones (since I assume most of you are at work). Envision a drink in one hand and pretend that the breeze coming from your office’s overactive AC is actually balmy and pleasant. Imagine you’re somewhere that’s not your office. Is it working? Do you feel better?
If you can’t conjure yourself to somewhere other than wherever you are right now, please let this GIF & the song entertain you instead. Happy Monday, sunshine.
