Video: Boots – ‘Mercy’

The world was introduced to the many talents of Boots through Beyoncé’s surprise album. The elusive singer-songwriter, who wrote and produced the bulk of Beyoncé including “Partition” and “Drunk in Love,” has since scored the trailer for Shades of Grey and released his mixtape WinterSpringSummerFall in May.

Now he gives us the video for his latest song “Mercy.” In the self-directed clip, a bloodied and bruised Boots aka Jordy Asher walks, then runs down a deserted road before tragedy strikes in the last five seconds.

Watch the startling ending to his story.
