ESTELLE RELEASES VIDEO FOR
Announces Essence After Dark Reggae X Afro-Beats
Link Up at 2019 Essence Music Festival
NEW YORK, NY – The new video for “Lights Out” by Grammy Award winning entertainer Estelle has premiered today. The sultry reggae track is off of her 2018 album Lovers Rock.
Directed by Estelle and Denzel Williams, the video was filmed in Australia and showcases Estelle in an intimate hotel room as she sings the song’s flirty lyrics. Filmed with sensual lighting and a decadent aesthetic, the visual perfectly matches the songs smooth and erotic vibe.
Prior to the release of “Lights Out”, Estelle recently completed the West Coast leg of her ‘Estelle Experience’ tour with dates in Las Vegas, Sacramento and Oakland following her East Coast run back in February where she hit New York, Philadelphia, DC, Atlanta and Nashville.
The Estelle Experience gave fans a chance to hear the story behind “Lovers Rock” from Estelle herself. Inspired by her parents love story, the album “Lovers Rock” features songs “Love Like Ours” featuring Tarrus Riley, “Better”, “Lights Out”, “Meet Up” featuring Maleek Berry, “So Easy” featuring Luke James and more.
“Lights Out” is my favorite song off the Lovers Rock album as I feel it truly embodies what Lovers Rock is to me,” said Estelle about the track. “The song came effortless to me and I love how it expresses the beauty in vulnerability and desire.
On July 5th, Estelle will present Essence After Dark Dancehall & Afro Beats LinkUp at the 2019 New Orleans for Essence Music Festival.
