Inspired by the iconic Maya Angelou poem, “Phenomenal Woman”, MOBO Award winning singer Laura Mvula enchants us with the colorful video for her new single of the same name. Taken from her upcoming second studio album “The Dreaming Room”, the video is a complete contrast to the all black “Overcome”, with colorful African prints and beautiful melaninated people dancing in equally colorful streets of Bo-Kapp, Cape Town. Like Angelou’s poem, Mvula wrote the song with the intent to inspire and uplift young Black Women. The video also features Mozambican kwaito dance group Tofo Tofo, known for their work in Beyoncé’s “Run The World (Girls)”.
Watch the video for “Phenomenal Woman” below. Laura Mvula’s sophomore album The Dreaming Room is due June 17.
