ABIR Releases Visuals for her latest single ‘Reunion’

Morocco-born, Queens, NY-based singer-songwriter ABIR released the visuals to her new single 'Reunion' yesterday and we can't help but wish we were part of her girl squad! Watch the video now.

I don’t remember when I was first introduced to ABIR‘s music but I’m so glad I kept following her creative journey.

This week, ABIR captured the awkward and exciting rush of reuniting with those you grew up with over the holidays into her song ‘Reunion,’ released recently on her debut EP “Mint.”

“Back in my hometown, there’s always a ‘reunion’ the day before Thanksgiving where all the homies and people I grew up with link up at the same bar and catch up,” ABIR explains. “It’s like a high school reunion. I missed it a couple years in a row so when I finally had the chance to make it to one, it was so crazy seeing how grown up and different everyone was. It’s insane how fast time flies and how much we change.”

Rather than recreating this scene for her video, she instead tapped her closest friends for an ultra-glam brunch, which she transformed into the visuals for the song. 

“Making the video was so fun – we thought of this dope idea to do a mukbang-style brunch where a bunch of my closest friends eat the entire video, and that’s it. Sometimes it’s fun to pull away from the literal meaning of a song and write a treatment that fits the vibe more than the words. I imagined my girls going in on some ribs and turkey legs, and that’s exactly what we did!”
