Former Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump has previewed his R&B-inflected solo debut, “Soul Punk,” with a music video featuring bright colors, bow ties, admiring shots of Chicago and a hoodie-sporting Lupe Fiasco. Check out the clip for “This City” below.
Patrick Stump feat. Lupe Fiasco: “This City”
The pop anthem marks a big departure from the pop-punk of Stump’s former band, and the singer pairs his new sound with equally striking visuals. Stump is seen dancing around in a tuxedo, black leather gloves and blonde spiky hair, as graphics of fire explode around him.
