Yung Bleu took advantage of his newfound fame by releasing his debut album, Moon Boy, last summer. The 15-track album featured features from John Legend, HER, Moneybagg Yo, Big Sean, Drake, Jeezy, Gunna, 2 Chainz, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and others. Bleu continues to promote the album nearly five months after its release by releasing a new video for “Beautiful Lies” alongside Kehlani.
Bleu and his love interest are wandering around a military base near the beginning of the video. When Bleu and his partner boarded a UFO-like craft, things took a turn for the worse. Bleu is then transferred to a different universe, where Kehlani awaits him. Bleu is transported back to reality after spending some time in this new world to reconnect with his buddy, who is overjoyed to see him again.
“Beautiful Lies” joins Davido’s “Unforgiving,” A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s “Ghetto Love Birds,” and Drake’s “You’re Mines Still” as album videos to get the visual treatment. Bleu’s new video was also released after he won the Best New Artist award at the 2021 Soul Train Awards.
