Daniel Caesar travels the world in his new video for “Toronto 2014” featuring Mustafa. Released Tuesday, the clip features footage of the stars as they visit Toronto and Sudan, with an intent to highlight “the beauty of both artists’ home countries.”
“This video explores home, the idea that we’re neither global citizens nor nomads; that we live in the air between, questioning our dispensability in any place we’ve lived in,” Mustafa said in a statement, per Uproxx. “We travelled to Sudan last year to witness a homecoming, the beauty of Sudan can’t be replicated. We were met with such warmth that you could feel in fragments in this video.”
“Now, as generals senselessly battle & leave our country in ruin, one can’t help but to think of all the kind people and family who assisted us in our journey—the buildings that have collapsed, the trees that went in fire,” he continued, before encouraging people to “donate what you can to local efforts.”
Proceeds from the video will reportedly benefit the Sudan Relief Fund and help those without access to food, water or other essentials.
“Toronto 2014 video out now, go find it on YouTube,” Daniel wrote on Instagram while announcing the video. “Got to travel the world with a few of my friends. I am eternally grateful for the life I lead. I will never stop striving for more but upon further reflection I can’t help but come to the conclusion that it is in fact, enough.”
The song is featured on Daniel’s NEVER ENOUGH album.
