About a week ago, we raved about the supremely talented English singer, Raye‘s excellent new six-track EP, Side Tape, as well as the project’s standout song, “Confidence” featuring Maleek Berry and Nana Rogues.
With Raye taking to Twitter to confirm that the infectious “Confidence” is one of her favourite songs off the EP, it’s no surprise that she just released a music video for it.
Produced by Nana Rogues, the smooth track finds Raye singing about going out to find a confident African lover (“African boy, where are you at though?”), and the charming Maleek Berry is quick to offer himself up for the position.
On the song’s hypnotic chorus, Raye sings “Need a brother who move confident/Need a fella who do what he want/Got me feelin’ all ooh”, to which Maleek Berry confidently responds, “Oh, you need a brother like me, babe”.
While we expected Raye to go all out for the music video, she sticks with something unexpectedly simple. With Maleek Berry and Nana Rogues missing in action, Raye spends the entire clip dancing in front of a mirror — think Cassie’s iconic “Me & U” video.
