Jordan Mackampa Is The Anchorman Of Bad News In “What Am I”

He’s not talking about the weather

Still from Jordan Mackampa – What Am I (Official Video)

UK artist Jordan Mackampa is the messenger of bad news in his new video “What Am I” where he captures our knack for ominous and gruesome entertainment while parking our butts in front o the TV. Directed by Tom Ewbank, the video is set in an old school TV fashion where Jordan is the channel 13 host who delivers you the latest on murders, catastrophes, and many more:

“‘What Am I’ is a modern take on Marvin Gaye’s classic ‘What’s Going On’, highlighting the state of the world right now, from multiple wars in different territories; how the earth is dying, to the border control problem & how it’s been dealt with. It’s a lot of ‘hopes and prayers’, changing of display pictures to blue, but all trickling down to a stop soon after, as it’s no longer in the forefront of the media. I wrote this song in the mindset of how I need to do more but don’t know how because I am only one man, trying his best to make change within the means available,” shared Jordan.

The track is a taste of Jordan’s upcoming debut length, which will be arriving soon. He’ll be kicking off his North America tour supporting Amber Run, so hell yes:
