Kelly Rowland at her finest! The 39-year-old singer dropped the music video for her new single “Coffee”, and it is steamy! In the visual, Rowland celebrates women and the beauty of Blackness— in all of the shades.
“I want to celebrate the women in video— every shade, every coffee color, every curve, every essence and what they gave me,” Kelly said in an interview with ESSENCE. “My intention I set for the video was to take the light in yourself and your sexuality [and put it in] a God perspective, in a way where you don’t have to get any approval from anybody else.”
The video focuses on diversified representations of Black skin color, hair textures and body sizes— which is exactly what Rowland wanted. “I just wanted the video to come across like, ‘Here we are standing in all of our beauty, in all of our coffee colored shades, in all of our greatness and you going to take this in.’ And that’s what I wanted and that’s what I want every woman to feel like.”
