Citizen Kay drops music video for latest upfront single ‘Don’t Blink’

His second single of the year

Canberra-based hip-hop artist Citizen Kay has dropped an official music video for his latest single, the upfront and anthemic ‘Don’t Blink’.

Self-produced by Kay, the new single dropped on October 23 with the official music video following today (October 29), directed and edited by long-time collaborator Nic Vevers.

In a press release, Kay talked about the inspiration behind the video for ‘Don’t Blink’, saying, “After working with Nic for so long, I’ve come to trust him completely and am hella confident of his work. We had this dope idea of a one-shot, slow panning, cinematic, minimalistic video which went right out the window.

“Instead, we ended up making this mostly spontaneous clip that you see which reflects the song so damn well!

“The animation represents subliminal internal thoughts which oppose a lot of the aggression throughout the track, and the visuals and a gritty style just came out so naturally when shooting.”

The song follows on from Kay’s collaborative single with Genesis Owusu, ‘Funny Business’, released in March. The song marked the rapper’s first new music in a year.

Upon that single’s release, Kay said he had more new material but was unsure when it would be released.

Kay’s last full-length album, ‘Belly of the Beast’, came out in 2017, and was followed by a single entitled ‘Ego’ last year.

Kay’s 2015 debut album ‘With The People’ and his 2014 EP ‘Demokracy’ were both nominated for an ARIA Award for Best Urban Album in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
