Don’t Tell Me No, is an unapologetic assertion of vulnerability. It gives you permission to not let your ego make decisions for your heart and a reason to say yes to love. “To me, my song Don’t Tell Me No, has a timeless sound. It’s Classic. I really wanted to channel that feeling in the video; so I decided to pay homage to an era that represents that to me, the jazz era,” mentions Brave. “I wanted something simple, elegant, clean and classic. A beautiful black piano, a talented pianist (Johnnie “Smurf” Smith), and an old school mic,” she adds.
The song was written by Brave Williams, Brittany Barber (John Legend, Ty Dolla), and Kristal Tytewriter Oliver (Diddy, Chrisette Michele) and produced by Ivan “Orthodox” Barias (Mary J Blige, Phony PPL, Chris Brown) and the classic visuals were directed by Zack David. “Don’t Tell Me No” music video was globally premiered on Bossip.com and is available on all streaming and download platforms now, via the SRG ILS Group label imprint.
