His daughter's reaction is absolutely priceless as she agreed to direct the music video for "No Bad Days."
The rapper, Macklemore, has asked his 7-year-old daughter, Sloane, to direct his upcoming music video "No Bad Days." He aims to keep it all in his family and shared a video on his Instagram account on February 20. In the video, he can be seen asking his 7-year-old daughter Sloane to direct his upcoming music video, which is set to release on March 3, 2023, as per TODAY. The video captures an emotional moment between the father and daughter.
Macklemore appears a bit nervous at the start of the video while telling his daughter that he wants to ask her something. He then expresses his surprise at her recent "producing" work. The proud father described his admiration for his daughter's work ethic and visual aesthetic, saying that he was impressed with her ability to know exactly what she wanted. He went on to mention that he had been trying to come up with a music video idea for his song "No Bad Days" and eventually asked Sloane if she would like to direct it.
He said, "Crazy idea, if you don’t like it we don’t have to do it. No Bad Days,' music video ... I need a director." Sloane reacted to her father's request with disbelief, putting her hand over her mouth. Macklemore's voice cracked with emotion as he proposed his idea for the music video and he was visibly overwhelmed. Without hesitation, Sloane answered with an enthusiastic "Yes!" and threw herself into her father's arms. Macklemore confirmed her response by asking, "Is that a yes?" and Sloane replied, "That's a yes!" with excitement.
The father-daughter duo shared an emotional moment filled with excitement and joy as they continued to embrace. Sloane eventually pulled away from her father to wipe away a few tears while Macklemore took a few deep breaths to compose himself. The two then embraced again before Sloane signaled the start of the shoot by saying, "Action."
In a December 2021 interview with People, Macklemore shared his admiration for his daughter's artistic talent, highlighting her great ear for music. He also mentioned that Sloane is not afraid to provide honest feedback, even if it hurts his feelings and he views that as her fulfilling her role as a daughter. Macklemore further added that Sloane enjoys spending time in the studio and has been teaching herself beatboxing, which she has become quite good at.
Macklemore and his wife, Tricia Davis, are parents to three children: Sloane Ava Simone, 7, Colette Koala, 4 and Hugo Jack Haggerty, 1. In 2021, after the birth of his third child, Macklemore took the opportunity to pay tribute to his wife, Tricia Davis, on Mother's Day. The couple got married in 2015. He wrote on Instagram, "You raise our kids with grace, humility, patience, curiosity and humor. You’re sweet yet firm. Your imagination is child like. You listen, teach and somehow remain balanced through it all. You are a hero to all 3 of us. And we just be having hella fun. Happy mother’s day my love. Thank you for choosing us."
Macklemore has been candid about his struggles with addiction and the journey to his sobriety. He wrote an essay for TODAY, where he opened up about his relapse during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. He wrote, "Relapsing is always hard. It’s traumatic for myself and for my family. I’ve had three relapses in the last six years. The amount of pain and damage that I can do very quickly in losing the trust of others happens instantaneously."
After achieving sobriety, Macklemore has been dedicating himself to his artistic pursuits once again, while balancing the responsibilities of being a working parent. It is evident that he is keen on involving his oldest daughter in his creative projects. He told People, "I just do my best each day. I work in the morning when the kids are at school. I pick them up, I’m with them until they go to sleep. I start working again around 8:30. I just work when I can."
