R&B SONGWRITER KIRBY SINGS "DON'T LEAVE YOUR GIRL" IN NEW VIDEO

February 4, 2020

 

R&B songwriter KIRBY has had a busy career writing for some of the biggest names in music. These names include Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul Mccartney, Beyonce, and Ariana Grande. Now, she’s putting her energy into her own work by dropping a new music video to accompany her groovy new single: ‘Don’t Leave Your Girl’. 

 

Produced by the Menahan Street Band of Amy Winehouse's famous album ‘Back To Black’, ‘Don’t Leave Your Girl’ is a soulful downtempo jam, with doo-wop piano, 90s turntable scratches, and a wealth of other tasteful instrumental touches. The accompanying video matches the vibe perfectly. It’s clearly shot on tape, with warm vibrant colours, and meticulous design choices.  

 

The story of the video and the song is of two alternate universes, or two different women in opposite situations. “There are two sides to every woman. The woman who’s so in love she will put up with anything to make sure her lover doesn’t leave. And the woman who’s so secure, she doesn’t need him to stay,” explains KIRBY.

 

Keep a lookout for her forthcoming EP, and give this soulful track a listen.

This summertime guitar production mixes well with BabyJake's raspy singing, harmonies and a blackbear type of tone.  Also reminiscent of the Dominic Fike wave that's taking over, we're excited to hear more talente...
