The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from a Toronto-based urban artist who collaborates with two musical comrades on the track.


Desiire, feat. Tika & Casey MQ: Goodbyes

Desiire is a Congolese-born, Toronto-based singer/songwriter who delivers a unique blend-mix of R&B, and Hip-Hop to create his music which is a compilation of rhythmic instrumentals, layered melodies and moody simplicity. Tika is an artist, DJ, creator, cultural producer, TV/online personality, activist, and advocate for the empowerment of female artists/creators, Casey MQ is a singer/songwriter, musician, and producer, and Ayo Tsalithaba is a visual artist whose primary mediums include film, photography and illustration. They enjoy exploring issues of identity, specifically societal expectations of race, gender and sexuality through their films.

They collaborate on Goodbyes, a relic that captures both the pain and freedom of letting go of a stagnant relationship. The song focuses on the loving nature of evolving and moving on in relationships. 

The music video is a short sultry visual that has the feel of a teaser. Only a part of the lyrics is played in the background while the camera moves slowly and closely captures each of the artists. The video ends with a quote. Desiire states that they wanted to create a song that felt both nostalgic and modern as they are all fans of old classic anthems. 

Directed by Ayo
