Daniel Caesar Releases Best Part Video

Two-time GRAMMY Award-nominated platinum-certified R&B star Daniel Caesar shares the music video for his latest single Best Part [feat. H.E.R.] today.

Watch it HERE.

A gorgeous beachside affair, the captivating split-screen clip depicts each respective vocalist walking along the water. The sun glistens off the sand as the voices entwine despite the distance. Dreamy acoustic guitar resounds as Caesar’s voice carries off into the horizon and H.E.R. simply hypnotizes as she maintains her signature mystery throughout the clip. It’s a cinematic exposition worthy of the song’s luscious and lovelorn emotionality.

Best Part stands out as the latest favorite from the artist’s GRAMMY nominated full-length epic, Freudian. Another phenomenon, it’s already racked up over 66 million Spotify streams and counting.

Last night, the duo joined forces for the first late night performance of the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!

Watch it HERE.

After recently completing his sold out Freudian World Tour, Caesar descends on Coachella this weekend and next.

Caesar quietly built a platform to reach the top of R&B and soul in 2018. He’s performed everywhere from The Late Late Show with James Corden to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Chance the Rapper, no less, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Notably, he even attracted the highest endorsement possible, with Get You appearing on President Barack Obama’s Year-End Best Songs list alongside another Caesar favorite First World Problems.

Democratic Socialists of America Has Become A Budding Political Force

Why an army of young people is joining DSA.
Anna Heyward for The Nation
 
 
24,000 people — 70 to 80 percent of them under 35 — have joined DSA since November 2016. Here’s the first long-form chronicle of the party’s 35-year history. Its founder, Michael Harrington, aimed to put aside the left’s infighting, forming an independent coalition working inside and outside the Democratic Party — in other words, a kind of friendly socialist lobby.
 
Anna Heyward will be available for remote interviews on the history of the Democratic Socialists of America through the new year. In 2018, she will be available for comment from New York, NY.
