Appropriately, the remarkably heavy tones behind "Thrive" are relatable to many, especially in the modern era, where billionaires enter space just to see how it looks while many are struggling to survive back on Earth. The music video reflects this theme quite adeptly as well. Negative Sixxx turned their concept ideas over to music video director Dave Perga, who then "took the simple idea and warped and twisted it into something special," according to guitarist Chris Van De Ven. who believes that "the only way to move forward in this industry is to come out swinging, and we really did with this song and video."

In addition to the lead guitarist Chris Van De Ven, Negative Sixxx is comprised of four other musicians: Sid Frankosky on lead vocals, Rick Chaves on guitar and backing vocals, Rawn Wadley on bass, and Mark Miller on drums. The band released their first EP, The Truth Shall Set You Free, in 2019 and has received massive critical acclaim for the four-track album. Since then, they have earned multiple accolades, including "Band of the Month" on Castle Blakk Radio and Most Requested Band on Texas-based radio station ZTR.FM.
