A fitting description of the artist himself, Keiynan Lonsdale’s new single Rainbow Dragon, which was produced by heavy-hitter Louis Futon, unleashes with Lonsdale’s fierce attitude and raw lyrics.
Lonsdale’s direct, yet positive vibes and sharp admonitions at the ignorant and fearful run through this emotionally charged and vocally urgent R&B-steeped number.
Touched with dreamy symphonic strings and ponderous beats, Lonsdale sing-talks from the heart about how “this world’s on fire” and there’s “no time to lie / We got to shine.” His important message is to be true to yourself and make the changes you need to in order to express your authentic self.
The video showcases Lonsdale as a max creative; one who takes the risks and is who he is with no apologies given (or needed!). Wearing a symbolic rainbow-striped shirt at first, Lonsdale morphs into a variety of colorful glam fashions and bold looks throughout the video, displaying different visual facets. Lonsdale also spotlights some of his cool dance moves while presenting his unique vision to the world.
