“Martin” star Tisha Campbell-Martin returns to give her new single "Steel Here" the video treatment.
Directed by Viktorija Pashuta, the visuals are filled with empowering images representing her freedom and strength. Not long ago, the iconic actress received an apology letter from a man that had raped her when she was three years old. The letter allowed Campbell-Martin to find forgiveness and a new found freedom in her life. It is this letter that is painted on her body in the video as black tears fall down her face.
Other scenes metaphorically show her strength as she fights the naysayers and overcomes the obstacles and in the final scene she slays some sassy choreography.
About the video, Campbell-Martin explains, "It represents a message that all of us can overcome our struggles in life and should forgive ourselves as we move forward into our new light and the life that has truly been planned for us." She continues, "Steel is one of the strongest metals on earth, and it represents the strength we need to continue our personal journeys. I appreciate the challenges I have had in life, and as I tap on my chest covering my heart, I’m happy to say “I’m Steel Here”.
When the song first dropped this summer, Martin was surprised by the positive response it got. “I’m still overwhelmed, and it’s still a little surreal,” she told EURweb. About the upcoming album, she says Tisha says it has a lot of hip-hop influence, and she even raps a bit.
Watch Tisha slay…
