If you don’t already know the name Pink Sweat$, trust me you will. The Chicago native is not only great at writing hits, but he’s incredible at performing them as well. After donning stylish pink sweatpants to writing sessions on the reg, the singer-songwriter was given the nickname Pink Sweat$, which as you can already tell, quickly became his stage name. With over 3 million monthly listeners on Spotify and a niche for writing authentic catchy songs, he has nowhere to go but up.
Following the release of his extremely successful EP Volume, Pink Sweat$ blessed us with yet another amazing track, titled “I Know.” The music video takes us into a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies, staring the artist himself as the main hero.

The subtle use of the color pink in almost every shot is very on-brand for the artist and it truly ties the whole video together. The aesthetically pleasing storyline ends with our star hero’s downfall, as he turns into a zombie himself. The last scene shockingly shows the newly turned zombie with bright pink eyes, leaving us with a major cliffhanger. This leads us to believe that this video is only the first of a series for the new chapter Pink Sweat$ is embarking on, and like you, we’re excited to be along for the ride.
If you’re unfamiliar with Pink Sweat$, make sure to watch the video down below. He’s not only taking over the fictional zombie scene, but the music scene as well.
