Leyla Blue’s aesthetically pleasing visual for “Silence” brings us through the evolution of a relationship: from beginning to bitter end. The retro video shifts mediums, between film and hi-res digital camera shots, depicting Leyla’s only moments of clarity to be when she is fully alone. “I’m a badass b*tch and I don’t really need you,” Leyla sings her empowering mantra while visibly heartbroken.
From her detached vantage point, the 20-year-old New York-born singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist sees everything clearly as she filters the chaos into empowered and enigmatic pop laced with throwback R&B energy. Streamed over 1 million times on her first two releases and signed to Island Records, the songstress catalyzes moments of insecurity into confidence, going “From ‘Sad Bitch’ to ‘Bad Bitch’,” as she so eloquently puts it.
