American singer and rapper most known for his viral hit single ‘Track Star’ Mooski releases a new single and music video ‘Scuba Diving’ from his promising upcoming project ‘Melodic Therapy 4 the Broken‘
It finds the 24-year-old in a distinctly sensual mood as he praises a lover over rumbling drums and melodic beats. The track is accompanied by a suitably sexy video. “Scuba Diving,” out now via Capitol Records, appears on Mooski’s forthcoming mixtape, Melodic Therapy 4 the Broken due March 11.
On the instantly hummable anthem, Mooski counts down the minutes until he can see his girl again. ”She say do you miss me or not, she say do you miss me or what,” he sings. “Girl, you know I miss you a lot.” Mooski wears his heart on his sleeve.
In the music video, the footage is juxtaposed with a couple of dancers doing their thing. Mooski’s willingness to be open about personal experience has captivated a massive—and growing—audience. Mooski says: “I talk about the unspoken,”
The single “Track Star” TikTok challenge inspired videos from Keyshia Cole, Lala Anthony, Dream Doll, and Halle Berry, among others. Additionally, Trey Songz and Jacquees both remixed it.
The versatile 23-year-old has been riding a wave of success since releasing the track last June, but his journey has been anything but easy. Born Darien Hinton, Mooski was raised in a religious household in Opp, Alabama, where he grew up listening to and performing faith-based music.
Mooski left The Marine Corps to pursue his true passion and started releasing freestyle videos on social media. Surprised by the response, he soon realized that vulnerable stories got the most traction. While Melodic Therapy single “Soul Bleed” found Mooski working through heartbreak, “Scuba Diving” is a decidedly upbeat affair.
