I remember the first time I saw the video for Goapele‘s “Play“, it felt like when they put that lead vest on you at the dentist before they do X-Rays, the weight of the imagery as well as the music in that video is instant and undeniable for me, my attention is totally rapt. So I was extremely excited to hear that Goapele and John Mazyck, the director of the “Play” video, had come together again to make a new video. I feel like this one hits just as hard; she is the definition of captivating here.

Watching this as well as re-watching that “Play” video and a few of her others made me realize that her style reminds me a lot of this other lady who doesn’t come out with music quite as often as I wish she would, but always touches me deeply when she does. Many of you will remember her voice from “Eye” on the Madvillainy album. Here’s one of my favorites.
