Harry Styles: Live on Tour (Review)
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Sam Stan, but the Miami rapper just dropped his new music video this morning and we’re loving it.
Just like all of the happy rapper’s work, “Outta My League” sends nothing but feel-good, carefree vibes. The quirky, fun single makes for easy listening. You can’t help but smile when listening to Stan’s clever rhymes and the nostalgic Super Mario-esque instrumentals, and the video supplies the perfect match.
Directed by Stan’s childhood friend and collaborator, Adam Rioux, the “Outta My League” music video showcases creativity and personality on all fronts. “Sam and I bounced some ideas on the concept back and forth, but what’s great about Sam is his love for creative expression. He let me run with my ideas and have total freedom,” Rioux said.

And while Rioux’s own creative voice shines through with his first ever music video, it did so in harmony with Sam Stan’s expression and personality as well. “[Sam] likes to let artists do what they do best: create. I tried to match the music video to his style [which you can see] come out in his acting. His personality really shines through. It’s infectious, he’s great.”
Sam Stan’s “infectious” personality most definitely sets him aside from other rappers in the game. The ‘Happy Raps’ genre, which Stan and his team define as “music that inspires positivity and good vibes”, is gaining more and more recognition. His fan base has grown beyond Broward County, Florida and into New York City, LA, and Chicago while his music garners over 71K monthly listeners on Spotify. Aside from numerous Spotify feature playlists, Stan was also most recently featured on Dear White People‘s Season 2 soundtrack.

With Happy Raps 2 coming out soon, we’ll have to wait and see what else is in store for the ‘Fresh Prince of Broward County’. Stay posted on all things Sam Stan—Facebook, Instagram, and Spotify–to stay in the loop: we sure will!
