This year marks 20 years in the music business for GRAMMY-nominated vocalist Maysa, and she has no intention of slowing down. In addition to the release of her twelfth solo album, Back 2 Love, the esteemed soul/jazz diva still makes appearances with Incognito, tours with her own band and recently surprised us all with the revelation that she created her own perfume. She also co-directed the first set of visuals for the album FOR the Stokley Williams duet “Keep It Movin’.”
We immediately fell in love with the song since it combines two of our favorite voices, so it was fun to see how Maysa and Stokley brought the smooth R&B groove to life on the small screen. Filmed in her beloved hometown of Baltimore at The Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute & Cultural Center, the video gives a peek into the shaky relationship of a couple. On the surface, things seem cool, but she’s longing for more and ready to take the relationship to the next level. “If you try and wait to long / You’ll look up and find me gone,” she sweetly warns. Will our leading man prove his love is real before it’s too late? Hit the play button below to watch the drama unfold.
It turns out that Stokley isn’t the only one making sweet music with Maysa on the new album. After watching the video, scroll down for the audio clip of “Last Chance for Love,” a tender duet with R&B crooner Phil Perry. We know you want to linger, but keep it movin’ and head to Amazon or iTunes for your copy of Back 2 Love. Then visit her website to find out where you can catch her on tour this summer.
