It’s pretty rare these days to watch a music video with some depth and a story behind it, but TOKiMONSTA‘s latest visuals do just that. The LA-based producer (aka Jennifer Lee) recently shared the treatment for her new single, ‘I Wish I Could’ featuring Selah Sue.
It tells the story of America’s ailing medical programs, cramped hospitals and underserved patients through the eyes of one overworked woman. It’s a hard story to watch and yet a beautiful one to behold.
In a statement, Lee said, “It means a lot to me to finally put visuals to a song that is so significant to me. After undergoing two brain surgeries and being unable to create, this song was the very first song I was able to complete upon my recovery.”
Lee’s two brain surgeries were to treat Moyamoya, the rare brain disease with which she was diagnosed in 2015. The surgeries caused her temporarily to lose her speaking and musical abilities. Lee wrote her 2017 album “Lune Rouge” (which features ‘I Wish I Could’) after she recovered.
