Leading up to the release of Girl Disrupted, Sevyn Streeter unveils yet another music video from her debut album with “Before I Do.”
Writhing on a bed as natural light pours into her room, the R&B songstress longingly sings about a potential romance. Whether in the pool or overlooking the gorgeous view, Sevyn can’t seem to get this romantic situation off her mind.
“I heard you got a girlfriend,” she sings as light flares surround her. “Say it ain’t so.”
“The concept for the video was birthed from the simplicity of the song,” Streeter told Essence. “I wanted it to be raw and vulnerable. It’s all about reflection. Being alone, in your home with your thoughts.”
According to Sevyn, the Aaliyah-inspired song — which she premiered at Rap-Up LIVE in October — hits home. “I always pull from my life in one way or another,” she said. “‘Before I Do’ was no different! The song was brought to me half written, but the story spoke to me so deeply that the rest of the words just flowed from an honest place.”
Expect more of this honesty when Girl Disrupted arrives in early 2017.
