Video: Eve f/ Gabe Saporta – ‘Make It Out This Town’

Eve

Eve empowers the youth in the Robby Starbuck-directed video for her inspirational anthem “Make It Out This Town” featuring Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship. In the uplifting visuals, the Philly rapper shows storylines of high school teens who face adversity. But they learn to overcome the odds with some help from the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, for which Eve is an ambassador.

The song serves as the official first single from Eve’s long-awaited album Lip Lock, due May 14.

“I am releasing ‘Make It Out This Town’ as my first single from Lip Lock because I wanted to share the positive place I have come into,” said Eve. “I went through obstacles to get my music and message out and nothing embodies this more than this song, which also mirrors my recent honor and connection that comes with my role as an ambassador for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The song is dedicated to them.”

Album Cover: Eve – ‘Lip Lock’

Lip Lock

Eve gets up close and personal on the cover of Lip Lock, her first album in over a decade. The Philly rapper rocks a metallic lip and heavy eye makeup on the black-and-white artwork. She only wanted to show her face to represent the album’s different moods.

“I don’t want people to take [Lip Lock] too seriously,” she tells Billboard. “I’m not trying to relive any moments of my life. I’m in a new place in my life. I’m almost a new artist. It’s a fun record.”

Due May 14, the 12-song album features appearances from Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Dawn Richard, and Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta, who is featured on the first single “Make It Out This Town.”
