Maxwell Drowns In A Woman’s Love In “Lake By The Ocean” Video

You never notice singer-songwriter Maxwell’s absence until he returns bringing something sorely needed and ferociously missed. Whether it be buttery smooth vocals, or lyrics with a purpose, Maxwell has cemented himself as the go-to for the lovers of the world and these past seven years without his music have been hard to bear.

Filmed in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic (an ode to his own genetic hybrid) the Philip Andelman directed video begins with a gorgeous woman weary after a long day’s work and spending the remainder of it carrying jugs of water to her home. She then heads to a tiny cafe to watch Maxwell perform where the two later enjoy a romantic evening together.

Of the video, the 43 year old singer says it”depicts a world in need of water and two clandestine lovers who meet with liquid dreams, one being the bare boned need for clean water, and another, the performer, who wants to be lost in the watery worlds of love and devotion.”
