Goapele Brings Us To ‘Tears’

It’s been relatively quiet over at Goapele‘s camp since she released the fantastic Break of Dawn last November. While she’s been on tour consistently since then, the rest of the world hasn’t heard or seen anything from her other than the guest appearance in Kem‘s video for “You’re on My Mind.” Thankfully, she has graced us with a clip for Break of Dawn‘s tearjerker “Tears on My Pillow.” The emotionally-charged ballad happened to be one of my favorites from the album, and she does it justice here. Looking absolutely stunning in a black couture gown that shows a bit of skin, Goapele emotes in an empty room as we get flashes of different objects (a door, flickering lights, chairs) in a style similar to that of the video for “Play.” But, just when you think that’s all that’s going on, she lets her hair down and changes into a floral dress for a scene with her love interest before the video’s end. This isn’t the last time will see Goapele onscreen, either. According to Concrete Loop, she’ll make her movie debut in August alongside Jordin Sparks and the late, great Whitney Houston in Sparkle. Until then, peep “Tears on My Pillow” below.
