Video: Faith Evans – ‘Fragile’

Faith Evans

To celebrate the release of her eighth album Incomparable, Faith Evans drops the “Scandal”-inspired video for “Fragile,” which features a sample of The Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreamin’.”

In the cinematic clip, directed by Derek Blanks, the First Lady of R&B stars as the First Lady of the United States in her very own White House. Pooch Hall plays her unfaithful husband and president. While she’s taking care of their two kids, he is cheating on her with one of his staff members, but Faith puts on a smile and acts like everything is OK.

The video is sure to ignite some controversy for its parallels to Evans’ past relationship with Biggie.

Watch the presidential plot play out below.
