Vivian Green debuts on SpitFireHipHop with her new ‘I Don’t Know’ video.
Vivian Green releases music video for ‘I Don’t Know‘ the debut single off her forthcoming album VGVI directed by Derek Blanks as she prepares to star in the stage play of the film adaptation “Two Can Play That Game” alongside Vivia Fox, Columbus Short, Gary Dourdan and Porsha Williams.
â€œI wanted to do something brighter and more upbeat,â€ Vivian reveals. â€œIf a song was sad, it needed to have a certain attitude, energy, and life to it. Iâ€™ve done sad songs. I love them, of course. However, I wanted to evolve.â€
The collaborators began recording at KwamÃ©â€™s studio in January 2017 and pushed to perfect the foundation they built two years prior with the album Vivid. Meticulously laboring over each note, the final product benefits from a close, near-obsessive attention to detail on behalf of the producer and the artist.
The first single â€œI Donâ€™t Knowâ€ illuminates Vivianâ€™s progression. Reggae guitar and drums simmer under a scorching verse before she delivers a soulfully sexy confession during the hook. The video filmed in Atlanta was directed by famed photographer Derek Blanks. Elsewhere, she revisits Vivid favorite â€œJust Like Fools,â€ but with re-recorded vocals and a cameo from none other than Musiq Soulchild. Their two voices entwine in heavenly harmony over the horn-punctuated production. VGVI concludes with one of her most powerful and passionate performances yet. The finale â€œStop Sleeping (See The Light)â€ sees Vivian embrace her platform like never before.
