Nigerian Singer Falana recently released the video for her hit single ‘repeat’ and this is what we think about it. The video was timely in celebration of the women’s month and has evidently become a women’s month soundtrack.
The video which was dedicated to every superstar woman out there hustling to be a better version of herself has more than one word to preach.
The single is the second that’s to come from her highly-anticipated EP, Chapter One, Falana explains to Hunger Magazine that the track digs deep into the commonalities of the human experience in our world (where change is a constant) and our need for community, spirituality and love.
“Repeat” is more than one word as the video pose as a stunning ode to resilience, resistance and faith. The video is a fusion of Falana fluidly moving in her glory and montages of political movements of our past—some of which were women-led.
she describes the song in her own words via her Instagram
I dedicate ‘Repeat’ and Chapter One to every superstar woman hustling to be her best self, led by faith alone to guide her as she builds castles in the sky, fighting the odds, mending a broken heart, balancing purpose and fear and hopping over disappointments along the way—while looking absolutely FABULOUS ALL AT THE SAME TIME! To mothers, and mothers to be, and mothers who have lost, to sisters and friends, to sisters in Christ, to women breaking boundaries in places where they are told they do not belong, to the women who are STILL working 1000000000000x harder to get respect they are due, to women who are just trying to keep it together, Repeat’ is a song about resilience, cycles, resistance and faith!
