Mac Miller Faces His Demons In "Self-Care" Video & Not The Song, not Ariana Grande
He's going to be fine.
Mac Miller is preparing the launch of the SWIM, the follow-up to 2016 The Divine Feminine, the 3 of August. Before his release, he has begun the deployment of material from the project. On Thursday (July 12), Miller shared the first video from the album, "Self-Care".
Directed by Christian Weber, the visual begins with the Pittsburgh native rap of a coffin, where she takes a shoe, gets a cigarette from his sock, strikes a match and smokes it, at the same time to be buried six feet under. Finally, punch a hole through the coffin and emerges from a huge pile of dirt.

A couple of lines of the song had people thinking "Self-Care" was about her recent breakup with the pop princess Ariana Grande.
"Well, I didn't know what I was missing/Now I see a lil' different/play cold/we know that we are wrong, yeah/You keep saying that in love, then? They tell Me that they really down?", he spits out.
But according to TMZ, Miller wrote, produced and finish of the track last year, when the two were still an item.
Miller and Grande broke up in May after about a year and a half of dating. Miller was then arrested for a DUI after crashing his Mercedes into a light pole.
Large shed a little light on what led to the split on Twitter, calling their relationship "toxic." She is now engaged to Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson.
"Self-Care" follows the previously released singles, "Small Worlds "Buttons" and "Programs", " although "Small Worlds" is the only one that will appear on the next album.
