The last time we saw Brave Williams, she was making it hot under the Christmas tree with the music video for her saucy rendition of "Santa Baby" around the holidays. Williams isn't done sharing her gifts or talents with the release of her latest visual for the love song "Don't Tell Me No," taken from her forthcoming debut album.
On "Don't Tell Me No," Brave encourages a potential love interest to take a chance with her. She knows they've been hurt before but vows not to repeat history. "Know you've had your heart broken before / This is a safe space, you can be sure," Williams lovingly assures the object of her affection on the sweetly soulful R&B ballad produced by Ivan Barias. Instead of playing out a relationship scenario in the music video, Brave and director Zack David decided to keep it simple instead. She's seen standing in front of a grand piano belting the song while Johnnie "Smurf" Smith tickles the ivories. Her styling and gowns are straight outta the '20s – the 1920s, that is.
"To me, my song 'Don't Tell Me No' has a timeless sound. It's classic. I really wanted to channel that feeling in the video; so I decided to pay homage to an era that represents that to me, the jazz era," she shared via press release about what inspired her to go in this direction for the clip. "I wanted something simple, elegant, clean and classic. A beautiful black piano, a talented pianist, and an old school mic."
Brave Williams' self-titled debut album will be released in a joint venture between her Brave New World imprint and SRG ILS/Universal Group later this year.
