When we first saw Lion Babe (comprised of vocalist Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman), they released the uniquely, artistic visual for “Treat Me Like Fire.” Now they’ve return with “Jump Hi,” a bump that has us wanting to hear more from the duo.
With Erykah Badu-like vocals, Hervey soulfully wails over the funky track which samples Nina Simone's “Mr. Bojangles” and, although not in the clip, Childish Gambino serves up some fly rhymes.
The video features Jillian (Vanessa William’s daughter) with her lioness-inspired curls as she literally leaps and twirls, showing her dance background, and Lucas isn’t far behind, jumping and rocking out.
“Jump Hi” stems from their upcoming self-titled EP.
