Fantastic Negrito has released a music video for “I’m So Happy I Cry.” The track sees Fantastic Negrito collaborate with “Tank” from Tank and the Bangas.
“I was really inspired to write ‘I’m So Happy I Cry’ the day after reading of Juice WRLD’s death,”says Fantastic Negrito. There are so many young artists suffering from what I perceive as mental illness. Imagine having everything you want in the world and still feeling the need to medicate until it kills you. There is something very sick — and tragic — about that.”
“Working with Tank was such a joy,” Negrito adds. “She is a powerful, dynamic artist, and we made a little bit of history together. It was the first time that two Tiny Desk winners collaborated on a song. I think it really gives validation to how important Bob Boilen and the NPR Tiny Desk Contest are. None of this would have happened without them.”
The track is featured on Fantastic Negrito’s upcoming album, Have You Lost Your Mind Yet, which is available on August 17th.
