|Kenyan-Norwegian artist Lil Halima releases the video for her single ‘who do u love’, taken from her brand new EP ‘for the bright days’ – out today via Universal Music / Def Jam Recordings Norway and Island Records UK.
Reflecting the song’s lyrics, the official video for ‘who do u love’ is a warm celebration of the various types love in someone’s life. It was directed by Lil Halima and creative collective 8392 (Marc Jacobs, JW Anderson, Isabel Marant).
Of the video, Lil Halima says:
‘I wanted a music video that would simply just convey the message of the song – remembering who you love. It was important to me that it was done effortlessly. So just a lot of love… good and bad, friendships and relationships. I wanted myself in the video to represent the feeling. Red, like love or anger.’
‘for the bright days’ EP is the counterpart to Lil Halima’s earlier 2019 EP ‘for the dark days’. The two-part release explores the two sides of the year living above the Polar Circle in northern Norway, where there is either constant darkness or light, and how it affects our relationships. Today’s release – ‘for the bright days’ – is a light-filled love song to summer and the freedom it brings. First track on the EP is single ‘who do u love’, followed by ‘yung luv’, which explores the confusion of fleeting feelings and features fellow hotly-tipped artist AMWIN. Final track on the EP is ‘don’t cry’, which features Lil Halima’s melodious vocals interlaced with piano and delicate synths.
