Gallant Heats It Up With Jhene Aiko In “Skipping Stones” Video
Gallant is back with the steamy visuals for his hit track “Skipping Stones” — featuring Jhene Aiko. The single is off his successful 2016 LP, Ology.
The AmericanM illennial-directed film focuses on using one-shot throughout the visuals which give it a unique perspective — and magnificently captured the voice of both artists.
“I’m really into the whole one shot thing. Even just the way that I write, I really like living into a moment,” Gallant explained about the video’s fluid narrative. “Digging into all the subtext that that moment kind of carries. I thought that this particular scene would just very naturally, in a very subtly complex way, kind of just illustrate exactly all of the fiery emotions that are coming through lyrically in the song from both perspectives.”
The talented R&B crooners first collaborated with some help from Red Bull Sound Select and have only performed the track live together twice: in March at SXSW and April at Coachella. The Twenty88 artist is scheduled to perform at the 2016 Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in LA on November 21 at Avalon.
The 24-year-old is currently headlining his first tour, recently performing his hit song “Weight In Gold” at the Apple Music Festival with the amazing Elton John. This upcoming weekend (Sept 30) The Ology artist will also be at the Austin City Limits Music Festival where fans will have the opportunity to watch his performance live on Red Bull TV here.
