Serj Tankian Shows the Power of Sage Advice in New ‘Rumi’ Video

System of a Down’s Serj Tankian has released the new music video for “Rumi,” a track of his recent solo EP Elasticity. The song is a tribute to Tankian’s six-year-old son and the 13th century Sufi poet Rumi, for whom Tankian named his son. Tankian doesn’t often share the lyrics to his songs, but he did so for “Rumi,” saying in a statement, “Lyrical specificity in music is generally discouraged because less people internalize them as they have less of a personal connection. But there are cases where it is vital if the inspiration and muse is specific. In this case, a father talking to his son and reverence to the poet that inspired the son’s name could not be re-written so one can generalize.”

Blue always travels with Beyoncé and comes with her when she’s working. The twins are getting older and Beyoncé has been taking them out a little more too.” The source went on to call the family “tight-knit,” adding, “Jay-Z does a lot of daddy duty stuff and he takes Blue to school and things like that.” When it comes to disciplining her children, the former Destiny’s Child member doesn’t believe in “spankings,” Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, told Us exclusively in June 2019. “[She] just really talk[s] to the kids and reason[s] with them,” the fashion designer explained to Us. “I can say, [she] pretty much has my parenting!” As for Queen B’s dad, Mathew Knowles told Us exclusively in May 2020 about Blue, Sir and Rumi’s distinct personalities. “Blue Ivy is just so incredible and reminds me of Beyoncé so much,” the Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story author told Us at the time. “Sir, he just wants his world to himself.
