Video: Kevin Garrett – Precious

Kevin Garrett releases the music video for his mellow and thought-provoking ballad, “Precious.” In the black and white clip, directed by long-time collaborator Shervin Lainez and shot in NYC, the Brooklyn-based, Pittsburgh-born singer-songwriter gets up close with the camera as he delivers the emotional song about not celebrating a love that is gone.

“I wanted to work with Shervin to make a video that focused on self-preservation but still represented the core of the song which is trying to get over a past love,” says Kevin. “Hence there being minimal shots of the other character that slowly dissipate as the video progresses.”

“Precious” serves as Kevin’s first release since co-writing and co-producing “Pray You Catch Me” from Beyoncé’s sixth studio album, Lemonade. The release also follows his 2015 debut EP, Mellow Drama.
