The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos that were eligible for the prize, including this one from a Vancouver-based singer/songwriter.


Haley Blais - Be Your Own Muse

Haley Blais is a Vancouver-based singer-songwriter known for her bedroom pop-like sound, actually recorded in her bedroom. Her fans are dedicated to the artist and have been awaiting new music since the release of her LP Let Yourself Go in 2018.

The single Be Your Own Muse off her 2020 album Below the Salt ”features the same melodic pop sound that her fans have grown to love. The video for the single, directed and produced by Vancouver-based writer/filmmaker Jake Pascoe, sees a handful of different subjects singing along to Blais’s lyrics.

The visuals open up on a bar and a young woman is walking in whilst simultaneously singing along to Be Your Own Muse. We are then taken to see the faces of a variety of different people of different genders, ages, and nationalities singing along as well. We close out with a pan to the stage where Blais and her bandmates can be seen playing the song to the ever-loving crowd.

The message of the song is clear -  you have to be the muse you are looking for. There is no one out there that will give you what you can give yourself.

Here’s Drake’s Reaction to a Woman Claiming She ‘Got Pregnant’ to ‘For All The Dogs’

Drizzy should just go ahead and rename his latest studio album to For All the Parents.

Drake certainly has a way with the pregnant ladies.

During the first Nashville stop of his It’s All a Blur Tour — Big as the What? with J. Cole earlier this month, a woman named Camille Smith brought a sign saying “I got pregnant to For All the Dogs (this is also my 5th time seeing you this tour).” But it was Drizzy’s first time seeing her because he clocked her sign and took a moment to respond, which can be seen in Smith’s TikTok clip that she captioned, “POV: Drake finally acknowledges you at your 5th show.”
