GIVEON RELEASES NEW ACOUSTIC VIDEO FOR “VANISH”
I hate you, too, and I wish you would vanish
Long Beach’s own Giveon has stolen the hearts of R&B fans everywhere to start the year, and with today’s release of the music video for the acoustic version of “Vanish,” it’s clear he doesn’t intend on letting up. The original “Vanish” track appears on Take Time, the singer-songwriter’s well-received introductory EP, which is now streaming HERE via Epic Records.

Directed by Goldby7, the video brings us to a dimly lit restaurant, where the acoustic video for “Vanish” finds our protagonist, as the stripped-down, guitar-only version of the outro to Take Time plays. In sync with the pleading nature of the song itself, Giveon tries convincingly to get through to a lady friend, reminding her, “You see what I mean? Saying things you don’t mean to the one that means the world to you.”
Much like the previous videos he’s released in promotion of his EP, Giveon manages to communicate the emotional complexity of his work without an elaborate plot—perhaps a testament to the compelling nature of the music itself.
Since bursting into the national consciousness with his scene-stealing appearance on Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” Giveon’s music and storytelling has been praised by fans and critics alike. As Billboard puts it, Giveon makes “..has distinguished himself with his plumed vocals, gutsy outlook on romance, and untapped potential as an A-list songwriter”
With an early top 15 chart performance on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Chicago Freestyle” and fanfare that’s growing exponentially by the month, Giveon has set the stage for his proper, full-length arrival to be an unforgettable one.
