When Goapele dropped her fifth studio album, Strong As Glass, last October, one of the standout cuts was the title track. An empowering piece of music about both women's strength and vulnerability, "Strong As Glass" is an anthem that resonates. Equally enthralling is the accompanying music video that Goapele has smartly released during Women's History Month.
Filmed on location in California's Salton Sea, the vast expanse of the scenery paints a desolate yet peaceful backdrop. Goapele, with her flawless makeup and skin, close-cropped blonde natural and various outfit changes, is the main focal point throughout the clip save for a few scenes of dancer Najah Miller who does an interpretive dance in a studio. Both women exhibit grace, beauty and their inherent strength throughout the almost four-minute clip for the Estelle-penned song.
This is a beautifully shot video for a feel-good song that has us thankful for artists such as Goapele who use their art and their platform for good and cause you to think while you groove.
