The result is this fantastic visual for his single "Preach" shot on-location in over 30 spots across the US - some of them pretty identifiable, some of them not so much. SonReal has long been praised for his next level video content, and this video continues that themes. Take a look above, and make sure to grab your copy of "Preach" now on iTunes, or GooglePlay.

Also as part of the video launch, our friends at Much premiered the video as part of an hour-long video playlist curated by SonReal. If you missed it, you can check the playlist featuring the likes of Meat Loaf, Sia, Beatnuts and Sam Smith HERE.
