The Philadelphia-born and bred singer’s newest video “Yes” helps raise awareness about breast cancer, but is also a touching love story. Musiq stands by a girlfriend during the roughest parts of her breast cancer treatment, from the actual surgery to the hair cutting and recovery process. In Musiq-like fashion, he makes it clear that as their relationship goes on, he won’t leave her side or love her less. AWWWWWW! At the end of the video, he finally marries the young woman, and does so in front of a room of actual breast-cancer survivors. Deep, right? Musiq, who is a new ambassador the for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Circle of Promise had this to say about the video’s message:

“Early detection is the key to winning the fight against breast cancer,” said Musiq. “Too often, black women are diagnosed in stage three and four when breast cancer is most difficult to treat. Some women are afraid to seek treatment for fear of losing their breasts or their hair. One’s physical appearance is much less important than the will to live. It’s time to remove the stigmas that are attached to this disease.”
