Nomi Ruiz gives us another glimpse into her nostalgic R&B/Hip Hop Soul album Hi-Def Femme (out 9/22) with the release of her second single Be Your Girl– a 90s golden era-inspired summer jam that explores the power of being present with a summer lover. The visual, written and directed by Ruiz, draws from one of her all-time favorite influences, Janet Jackson. (above image by Kenny Rodriguez)
“I love the mystery behind getting to know someone intimately.
I wanted to capture that moment of initial touch, to show these lovers exploring each other for the first time over the course of a day.
For me, there’s something so intimate about sharing space with someone while watching them in their element. Allowing them to be themselves while learning more about how they operate by simply letting them be.”
New album Hi-Def Femme is out on September 22nd, stream Be Your Girl on all digital platforms.
