Powerhouse vocalist, Tessanne Chin recently released the video for her latest hit single, Fire which has been blazing airwaves since its release. The video was premiered on Monday, August 10 on the popular internet site, Youtube and has since racked up over 10,000 views. The single, released on the Justice League Music Group Label, was featured as the soundtrack for the Jamaican songstress’ US ad debut for Clear Scalp and Hair in March. Since its release the single has gotten rave reviews with critics labelling it a modern twist of classic R&B.
The video features a classic rhythm and blues theme to match the original 1970s R&B sounding track. “It has a throw-back vibe which I think represents the feel of the song perfectly,” said director Nathan Patrick. Shot on location in Jamaica at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston, the video boasts scenes from the Regency Bar where Tessanne can be spotted giving a classic style ‘live’ performance. This scene more than anything illustrates the fun, empowering and soulful nature of the single, “It’s colorful and fun and brings attention to the music, it’s all about the music,” Patrick concluded.
Tessane Chin holds the single in high esteem as a mantra of empowerment and is confident that the video will help bring that message across.
“I want the video to represent the message of the song which to me is a modern day soulful power anthem without it being the typical boy girl scenario. Yes, I want it to be fun, but I also want to embrace the wonderful authority that comes from knowing yourself and your worth and owning your fierceness no matter who, what, where, when or how. Own your Fire,” said Chin.
