Five music videos for the ones that are gone too soon


Whether someone was taken too soon, the love of your life got away, or you are just recounting the times when you were together, these five music videos from Canadian artists help put everything into perspective. 

Chad Price - "Broken Open" 

Take a journey of self-healing after the loss of a groundbreaking love in this video for “Broken Open” by Chad Price. Directed by Price and Christopher Evans, the lyrics of the song mixed with the visuals of the beautifully shot video help depict the inner monologue of a heartbroken Price. “Sometimes being ‘Broken Open’ is necessary to open up and evolve into the best versions of ourselves.”

Jon Vinyl & Jeremy Passion - "Thinkin’ Bout You" 

Your mind can be your worst enemy, especially after someone you love gets away. “Thinkin' ‘Bout You” by Jon Vinyl and Jeremy Passion explores the thought, “are they thinking about me like I’m thinking about them?”. The video, directed by Jordan Lee, shows imagery of a couple together and subsequently apart in the same setting. It’s a reminder to cherish the moments spent with those you love when you have them.

Kiana - "Wait on Me" (ft. Lou Celestino)

What happens when a force out of your control pulls you away from the one you love most? This video from Kiana for “Wait on Me” featuring Lou Celestino is a tribute to those who were ripped apart from each other for standing up for what they believe in. If the love and bond is strong enough, nothing will tear you apart.

Mustafa - "Name of God"

In everything Mustafa does, the honours go to his late brother, who was taken from him and his family too soon, and the song & video for “Name of God” is no different. Directed by Mustafa himself, the video sees the singer dancing in different scenarios: surrounded by people dressed in traditional Muslim garb, hands undressing him, and a number of weapons pointed at his face. Ending on a beautiful tribute to his brother.
