"Because I'm Me," the feel-good, summertime crowd favourite from this year's Wildflower, finally has a video, and it's everything we hoped it'd be. Sweet? Yes. Cheesy? Yes. A little bit weird? Definitely. In fact, it sort of has us wanting to adopt a small, love-struck, dancing child.  

Starring young heartbreaker Prince Malachi as Wallace, whose undying love for subway worker Becky—played by Morgan Green—has him dancing and singing to win her heart with the help of a brass band and Sonny Cheeba of Camp Lo.

Set in the subways of New York, where magic just happens, the video—which is very "Since I Left You"​—was directed by Greg Brunkalla, the man behind Danny Brown's "Grown Up"​ and Vampire Weekend's "Step."

Don't want to feel stuff right now? Don't watch this video, buddy.
