If you're not on top of it, it's easy to forget what games are leaving Xbox Game Pass at any given moment. To get you to check the "Leaving Soon" tab more often, Xbox has dropped a short, weird music video dedicated to the sadness that comes from games being pulled from the vault.

The music video, titled "Leaving Soon," is an official music video with lyrics that's only 37-seconds long. Though it's short, a lot happens in those 37 seconds--a lot of questions, that is. Who is that singing? Why does he sound like discount Usher? Where is the full mixtape? There are no answers.

It's only a verse long, but there's a lot of passion in the brevity. "The game you love might leave, so play before it goes," the song starts. "And check the app for 'leaving soon,' it's important that you know." These pensive lyrics are set to a melodic guitar caked in reverb with a very distinct '90s R&B kick-drum setting the rhythm, all against a backdrop of rotating stock images of sad people. If there's any one thing to take away from the sorrowful song, it's to remember to check Xbox Game Pass's "Leaving Soon" tab. In fact, you can check out this month's Xbox Game Pass lineup, including the titles that are leaving the service, right here.

Speaking of Xbox Game Pass, Xbox has recently announced that its cloud streaming service, xCloud, will launch as part of the Game Pass Ultimate subscription. The service is expected to release on September 15..
