Emeli Sande takes a stand in the song and R&B music video for “Clown,” a reminder that it’s honorable to fight for the right to be ourselves, rather than give in to what the world thinks we should be.
“It’s about how I felt when I was trying to get signed, I was going for all these meetings and people were looking at me like ‘What do we do with you’? It’s about not allowing yourself to be judged by others or to be taken for an idiot. I feel the video reflects that,” Sande explained.
Directed by Wiz, the black and white visual portrays a military-like interrogation room; intimidation looms, but will Emeli fall victim to it?
“Clown” comes from her debut LP “Our Version Of Events.”
