Today, Elijah Blake dropped his EP Drift and celebrates the release by also dropping the visual for one of the project’s cuts “Strange Fruit.”
Judging from the title, one would assume the song be about the same socially-aware subject matter notably sung by Billie Holiday( and written by Abel Meeropol), but instead, Blake features a take from Outkast’s “Elevators (Me & You)” on the chorus’ melody and sexifies it up. The clip features the singer in a psychedelic Garden of Eden being tempted with the “strange fruit.”
Sacrilegious, or artistic? You be the judge and sound off below!
