Taken from his recently released and critically acclaimed sophomore album Cosmic, which was released in September last year to rave reviews, Teddy Riley protégé, former Blackstreet member, and New Jersey R&B singer and songwriter LENNY HAROLD is excited to kickstart his 2019 with the release of his highly anticipated music video for fan-favourite Cosmic album track ‘MORE’, which has just been premiered by Soultracks.
Produced by three time Grammy Award nominee Armando ‘Mandobeats’ Colon, who has previously worked with the likes of Shaggy, Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Cam’ron and Fat Joe, with live bass and guitar arrangements from Ralph B. Stacy (Luther Vandross, SWV, Dru Hill), ‘More’ stands out as a timeless R&B slow jam, which is held together by Lenny Harold’s striking tenor and smooth vibrato, and honest and relatable songwriting about wanting more for and from a love interest.
The ‘More’ visuals see Lenny Harold collaborating with fast-rising cinematographer and photographer Richard ‘Parlay’ Copier of OneiPhotography, to create a storytelling masterpiece, which not only brings the ‘More’ record, which is already a timeless R&B offering all by itself, further to life, but tells its own story of a woman stuck between trying to leave a life of pain and abuse behind, and the fear of leaping into the unknown with someone new.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the ‘More’ video, Lenny Harold says, “we wanted to create a visual that could tell several stories, with the main focus on our leading lady having to make a decision that’s often vital to the heart for all of us. You’re not sure if she did, if she wants to, or if she’s just thinking about it, and ultimately, we don’t know. We wanted the video to have the ability to connect with everyone regardless of the scenario, and I hope it does just that”.
Counting the likes of Quincy Jones, Marsha Ambrosius and Jamie Fox as fans, and with three critically acclaimed R&B projects already under his belt, before he released last year’s well received Cosmic album, Lenny Harold is coming into 2019 as one of the best pure R&B talents out of America today. The rest of the year will see the New Jersey native embark on a short run ‘Cosmic’ tour across the US, along with the release of more visuals from the album, starting with ‘Heat’ in February.
