When Esperanza Spalding’s name pops up, first thought is jazz; she is not usually attached to dancing. In the music video for “Crown & Kissed,” the talented bassist moves her afro and feet in part of a interpreted dance routine, accompanied by a crew of dancers dressed in all black.
Through the music and movements in the visuals, Spalding wants the message of the song to be conveyed: “This song is about the unsung royalty in your life, men and women who quietly, every day do the mightiest, most honorable things. Although they may not end up in castles or with great riches and power, in the eyes of those who love them, they most certainly are mighty and regal.”
A copy of the record can be purchased along with the full album ‘Radio Music Society’ at a digital retailer (Click purchase above).
