During these turbulent times of deadly viruses and quarantine orders, it’s no surprise that Watchyatone would feel inspired to release a new single reflecting on the changes in life. Despite the abundance of quarantine-themed songs out there, this one stands out. For those who are familiar with Tone's recent struggles, it's clear that this song will touch on some deep emotions.

Filmed by AFNF Visual, the video pays tribute to Big Spec. It opens with a snippet of Tone's first interview from two years ago, featuring Spec as his inaugural guest. This moment marked the beginning of their partnership, leading to the growth of ManListen. The video showcases various interviews with Spec and Tone, highlighting the bond they shared. As Tone performs in the ManListen headquarters, the throwback clips add depth to the visuals, emphasizing the void left by Spec's absence.

While the video honors Big Spec, the song itself mourns the loss of all those dear to Tone. He reflects as he says “Man listen I miss my N*****. Up in the middle of the night reminiscing. Crazy how you gone and I still ain’t forget it. Ever since then I felt like something missin’. Life been different.”

Tone reminisces about his last performance and how isolation during quarantine has amplified his thoughts. This song resonates with anyone who has experienced the pain of losing a loved one.
