New York-based R&B/Soul duo Lion Babe (aka vocalist Jillian Hervey and producer Lucas Goodman) drop the music video for their song “Got Body,” a record from their debut album, Begin, which was released earlier this year.
Directed by Julian Branciforte, the video for the self-empowering song was shot in and around Lion Babe’s own stomping grounds of East Village and Lower East Side in New York. A day-in-the-life, the clip follows Jillian and Lucas on a typical day from riding the subway to hunting for Vinyl (Jillian even finds an old LP of her mother’s, Vanessa Williams!) to working on new music in their home studio, to hanging out with friends.
Earlier this summer, the duo released their first-ever mixtape, Sun Joint, in conjunction with their first headlining tour of North America. The project, which featured tracks like lead single “Endless Summer” and live favorite “Tina Turner,” expertly weaves together the band’s signature Technicolor pallet of sounds, including soul, funk, electronics and earworm melodies, further pushing the signature sound Lion Babe developed on their debut album. The duo is currently gearing up to release a new music project, which will be out before the end of the year.
