Kelela Drops Sims-Inspired Video For ‘Frontline’ Single

Rising R&B/Soul artist Kelela releases the futuristic sims-inspired music video for her latest single, ‘Frontline.’ The clip opens up with serene shape-shifting sonics and a computer-generated version of Kelela sitting down explaining to her cyber lover in her smooth varied tone that the place he once held in her heart is now behind her.

The dreamy R&B breakup song first debuted on HBO’s hit show Insecure. Kelela told Rolling Stone about the video, “I love speaking to my fans through music videos and I always find it more fun to reference things that we can all relate to that may not be in the forefront. With this sims-like video, I was able to tell my story in a light-hearted but dramatic way. It’s about leaving your ex with the wind in your hair while acknowledging a curiously complex feeling of pain that he has left you for a white woman.”

‘Frontline’ is the third track released from Kelela’s debut album, ‘Take Me Apart,’ which follows up her previously released singles, ‘LMK’ & ‘Blue Light.’
