Last we heard from alternative R&B singer-songwriter Elle Pierre was in late 2015 when she released this single “Transition.” Now she’s premiering the stunning video here on Singersroom!
The visual features five women, each representing one of the Orisha Saints (or Gods); Elle is a free spirit on the beach as she relishes in her goddess nature. She says the video “is to remind (Black) women, myself included, that we are regal beings and must regard ourselves as such, especially as we enter new relationships.”
Produced by Elete Wright, the alternative song sounds moody and emotional, and given the inspiration, it’s easy to understand why.
She told Afropunk last year: “‘Transition’ was written while I was in a situation I’d like to call “lover’s limbo.” This is where you’ve crossed the boundaries of friendship with your partner and are now in the lover’s zone… but your partner, for whatever reason is afraid of or avoiding the commitment of being in a relationship. Also known as he/she wants his/her cake and eat it. I wrote this song for my then lover, a fellow musician of course, to express my desire to move from this state of limbo into a place of romantic love. It didn’t work out however this song remains very close to me and I’m sure there are women who can relate.”
“Transition” is featured on Elle Pierre’s upcoming EP Lover’s Limbo due out soon.
Be hypnotized by Elle’s entrancing aura…
