As Fousheé (fka Britanny Fousheé) preps the May 25th release of her long-awaited debut EP Speak Up, the alt-soul singer and instrumentalist shares the stunning new video for her single “By One,” premiered (5/16/2018) by ESSENCE.
“‘By One’ is, for the most part, about a frustrated lover. The video uses light and dark to portray the highs and lows of a relationship. The dark scene represents the hard times. The light represents the good times and a softer, more vulnerable side. Together they kind of meet and the middle and create a balance that’s needed to make a relationship work. I wanted to not only show the contrast of a relationship, but who I am as an artist, and the beauty in the balance of it all. I absolutely love the edginess of today’s fashion. I live for leather jackets, a glossy dark shadow, and silver chain accessories. On the other hand, there’s a side of me that identifies with the simplicity of draped white fabrics, natural curls, and pastel flowers.” – Fousheé
“By One” serves as the lead single from Fousheé’s forthcoming debut EP Speak Up, due out May 25th. The project covers topics like substance abuse, current race wars, situational friendships, and love.
