Ummmm. Yeah. So, early yesterday morning the love of my life was all like, ‘Did you see that new video from Vanessa Williams’s daughter?‘ And I was all like, ‘Ummmm no. WHAT?!‘ I couldn’t believe her daughter released a music video and I definitely didn’t expect it to be, like, good. You know how it is with these children of celebs– we give ‘em a hard time! Every time I hear about one of them coming out and doing stuff, I think of Tommy Hilfiger‘s son. Who is a rapper. Moving on. LMAO! Anyway, the love of my life went on to describe Vanessa Williams‘s daughter (Jillian Hervey) as kinda Erykah Badu-ish, but with some Lady Gaga maybe, and then a little Beyoncé. And I thought to myself, Hmmm. Erykah Badu + Lady Gaga + Beyoncé = Solange! I friggen love Solange! So I got really excited to watch the video for Treat Me Like Fire, and I was NOT disappointed. I love it. LOOOOoooooVE it. It starts off kinda scary, then it gets sexy, then fun… but still scary. Yeah, you gotta watch. Jillian Hervey is actually one half of the group Lion Babe; she’s joined by her producer Luca Goodman. The two are totally magic together and I love this song. Jillian can really, really sang and I like that she’s got her her own style.
Erykah Badu + Lady Gaga + Beyoncé = Solange (+ Kelis + some high kicks + a ferocious, hyper-sexual lioness) = LION BABE
