Multifaceted comedian/musician/actor/talk show host and C.E.O Nick Cannon is back in the lab and unleashes the visuals for his new single "Eyes Closed" which was previously released on the Miracles Across 125th Street The Soundtrack presented by Republic Records and Nick Cannon’s Ncredible Entertainment.
The heartfelt love ballad showcases Nick's singing abilities and I must say, it's not bad at all. The man knows his onions and delivers a heartwarming and honest performance ripe with adulation-filled lyrics about true love. The production is brilliant too, it doesn't overwhelm the vocals and the soft piano progression slowly builds up with soulful strings and soft background vocals to boot.
On another note, the visual is both cinematic and emotional as it captures Nick's natural flair in the performance department and matches the power of his voice with a fittingly impactful narrative. In a nutshell, it showcases another side of Nick that is instantly relatable and vulnerable.
"Eyes Closed" is taken from the new holiday movie Miracles Across 125th Street, which was written, and directed byCannon himself. The film boasts appearances from Lil Kim, Chrisette Michele, Kierra Sheard-Kelly, Karen Clark Sheard, Fred Hammond, Tommy Davidson, Bruce Bruce, Luenell, Akon, Todrick Hall, DC Young Fly, Jim Jones, Rickey Smiley, Teyana Taylor, and more.
