[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lupe Fiasco[/lastfm] has had, well, a financial and politic-laden fiasco releasing his Lasers album. So it’s pretty fitting that his first single off the album is entitled “The Show Goes On.” Because, well, the show–and his music career–are primed to go on in 2011.
Just like the long wait that his fans had in order for his Lasers album to come out, so is their wait for Lupe Fiasco to get from his dressing room to the stage in this new music video. Despite the crazy Tron-like CGI lights, the video is pretty realistic of the life of a music star. The tune itself is killer; it’s positive, has a great melodic groove behind it, and shows off why Fiasco fans are so devoted to his musical cause. Fiasco inspirationally speaks to his fans on a personal level.
And he tells his fans that no matter what happens in their life, the “show goes on.”
