Fresh off the heels of her new EP, Dreamseeker, Goapele gifts us with a seductive new video for the standout track, “$ecret.” Adorned in fashions from the Bad Butterfly Collection, a new womenswear collaboration by Project Runway finalist, Candice Cuoco, and Growing Up Hip Hop’s Vanessa Simmons, Goapele boldly explores her sultry and sensual side. Directed by Sean Alexander, the video includes fishnets, an albino snake, and a sexy male muse. Produced by CrakWav and with a nod to Aaliyah’s “Are You That Somebody”, Goapele has a secret to tell with this hypnotizing bedroom ballad. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Critical acclaim continues to pour in for Dreamseeker. Okayplayer described the title track as “euphoric,” Ebony wrote, “the mention of Goapele’s name instantly sends good vibes,” and SF Gate claimed, “Goapele is in classic form,” in addition to features from Rap-Up and The Source.
The perfect mix of her signature soulful style that millions know and love as well a touch of modern panache and poise, the project represents a rebirth for the songstress. At the same time, she poetically ponders activism, motherhood, sensuality, and life throughout the 10 tracks, ranging from the love ballad “Stay” and sexy swing of “$ecret” to the primal energy of “Power” and ethereal textures of the title track “Dreamseeker.”
Diversity has defined Goapele since the start of her career in 2001. Her influence and impact can be felt throughout R&B, soul, and hip-hop. 2001’s Closer yielded the iconic anthem “Closer.” To date, it has impressively racked up over 6 million Spotify streams and has been sampled by everyone from Drake to YG. In between touring the world, she has released four full-length albums and collaborated with a diverse array of heavy hitters such as Snoop Dogg, E-40, Eric Benét, Soulive and Jeff Bhasker.
Outside of music, Goapele is committed to activism and raising awareness. She is an active participant in the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and recently starred in a short film entitled Where Is Beauty, which addresses the pressures young women face with social media and beauty standards.
