Meshell Ndegeocello has released the video for her cover of TLC’s "Waterfalls". The video was shot in Iceland and directed by Damani Baker. "Waterfalls" appears on her forthcoming album "Ventriloquism", out March 16, 2018. The album features versions of songs by Prince, Janet Jackson, Tina Turner and more.
Meshell Ndegeocello speaks about working with Baker: "I love Damani and his work and I knew he would create something with both weight and air, something that reflects both heaviness of heart and the endurance of hope. That’s what this song feels like to me."
Director Damani Baker says: "I wanted to tell a story of resilience and fragility. The resilience of people, displaced people, people who are not home, looking for the promise of basic human dignity and hope. And I wanted to celebrate brown people leading the way forward, how our marginality and struggle affords us a unique perspective in this moment where so many people are finding themselves thrust to the margins of our economy, political systems, and habitat. We shot in Iceland where the ground was literally melting beneath our feet, and where the barren and strange landscape requires our imagination as we all strive together to figure out where we go next."
