ModSun has a habit of gifting his friend base even on his own birthday. On Friday, ModSun released his sophomore album titled “Movie” exactly two years after the release of his debut album, “Look Up” in 2015 also given to us on his birthday. I wonder if this will continue to be a trend. If so, I’m already anxiously awaiting 2019! Until then, it’s safe to say I will be enjoying “Movie.”
The album opens with a preview and follows with 10 full length songs with features including Dej Loaf, Mansionz, gnash and Maty Noyes, D.R.A.M. and Rich The Kid, and Blackbear. We’ve been teased for months via Snapchat by hearing clips of songs, comments about the album, and tons of hype and praise from other artists both featured on his album and otherwise.

We were lucky that ModSun released a couple of singles a few months back to get a little taste of what we could expect from the album in full. ModSun released We Do This Shit featuring Dej Loaf as well as Smokin What I’m Smokin On and more recently Two followed by Beautiful Problem.
I’ve been listening to ModSun for years, and I can undoubtedly say this is easily hands down his best work to date. Not only did he put out his best work musically and lyrically, he’s never been so engaged with his friends about his upcoming body of work or so excited to show us who he really is.
Although we already know his happy hippy nature and how he constantly radiates positivity, my favorite part of “Movie” is how candid, authentic and completely and genuinely real he allowed himself to be with his listeners. Two songs in particular stand out to me; Make Somethin’ Of Yourself and The End Or Start Again?. In Make Somethin’ Of Yourself, ModSun shares how he got through his parents divorce and in The End Or Start Again, he opens up about his mistakes, realizing he’s been wrong, and possible heartbreak.
In addition to his album titled “Movie” ModSun also created a 13 minute movie titled “Album” where we get visuals of what’s been going through his head while clips of his songs play throughout. Along side ModSun, “Album” also stars Hanna Beth, the presumably and essentially assumed love of his life.
Exposing us to some of his pain, fears and confusion, we get to see a new side to ModSun, seemingly making him a bit more human. It’s easy to show the world when everything is going well, but when you can show some struggles and downfalls as well, that’s true art. The way ModSun deals with his situations and continuously maintains a positive outlook and happy nature is what keeps me intrigued, influenced and inspired.
