Watch: Vanessa Williams’s Daughter Released A Music Video And Y’all Are Not Ready!


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

      Lulu, trust me. I completely understand your initial doubts, lol. Loving her was really a huge surprise, right? Anyway, her workout plan clearly involves a lot of high kicks or something. I plan to start incorporating those into my routine. Stat.

    This is a great music gem!

  • Shannon m.

    In the first part of the video where she’s actually singing, I can’t get over how much she looks like Rihanna. Anyone else think so?

    • Shannon

      Shannon m., I saw some people on YouTube said the same thing. I think stylistically the two are very similar. That black top and denim shorts look is def something I could see RiRi wearing.

  • Samantha

    Is she growling at me? I’m done *closes computer and walks away* but seriously, I love this song!

    It’s like Erykah Badu & Kelis had a baby! :0)
