Rising star Ravyn Lenae once again proves that she has an unparalleled vision with the visuals for her reflective single “Alive.” Although it seems rather short, the music video perfectly matches the Chicago native’s harmonious vocals with her aesthetic.
In the 2-minute video, the hypnotic and electronic-fused instrumentals play in the background as Ravyn showcases her unique sense of style. Clips smoothly transition from the rooms in a luxurious Victorian-style mansion to a hilly landscape as the songstress continues to sing over the slow-burning track. “I feel free, can’t you see I will not always be here. No tears (no), no fears (no),” she sings.
While the visuals seem to represent the softer elements of the track, the song’s inspiration has a deeper connection. “‘Alive’ stems from emotional growth and contentment,” Ravyn said. “Before writing the song, I was swimming in a pool of hurt, guilt and spiritual discomfort. Instead of drowning, I decided to embrace these feelings and express gratitude for the lessons learned. With this new-found sense of life, I am stronger and happier than ever.”
The “Alive” video comes just before the release of Ravyn’s EP Midnight Moonlight, which is set to drop on Mar. 3. In addition to the project’s rollout, Ravyn is keeping herself busy on tour with Noname on the Telefone Tour. The trek initially kicked off in Jan. 2017, and will conclude on Mar. 6, in Detroit, Mich.
