Fast rising Dutch-Sudanese R&B/Soul singer and songwriter Gaidaa — who was recently named to ESSENCE‘s “Artists to Watch in 2021” list alongside acts like Arlo Parks, Channel Tres, and SAULT — has delivered a love letter to her younger self in a poignant music video for “Stranger,” her standout collaboration with Chicago rapper Saba and Dutch producer Jarreau Vandal. CLICK HERE to watch the stunning Segraphy-directed visual available across all digital streaming platforms now via The Orchard.
The songstress continues, “The video tries to show me reflecting on my own idea of who I would be when I grow up, and how the projections I may have placed on myself played out in reality. The video is one straight take without any cuts, to me representing the idea that we are in an ever evolving ongoing process. Having the younger me in the video was to emphasize that though we may be looking for who we are, whilst taking on the process and projections, we find that the root of who we are remains.”
