Premiere: Pell Captures The Strength Of New Orleans In His "Patience" Video
Pell heads home to New Orleans.
New Orleans' Pell is back with a brand-new video for his energetic track, "Patience." Released today (Sept. 14) with Red Bull Sound Select, the London On Da Track–produced song comes to life with help from a gorgeous cast of ladies who make up the second line in the visuals. Director Alan Del Rio Ortiz and the lyricist had a vision to capture the essence of his hometown and the strength of its people.
"The women in this video are meant to represent the diversity of beauty, no matter what conventional norms want us to believe,” says Pell. “The song and video showcase a bridge between traditional New Orleans brass and second line customs, with a new hip-hop perspective on top.”
"NOLA Mix (Brass Band Version)"
"I would like to dedicate this video to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and the people of Texas," Pell told VIBE. "With Katrina, I experienced firsthand how catastrophic Mother Nature can be, and saw the strength and resolve of the people of New Orleans to rebuild together through its devastation. I hope this video can serve as a symbol of positivity: We will support each other and come back stronger. Prayers to those in Texas."
