Spring is still in full effect, but we are counting the days until summer. The sunshine, the warm weather, the beaches, the vacations — we are here for it all. Apparently, we aren't the only ones. Bounce-Worthy alumna Carolyn Malachi brings our summertime wish list to life in the music video for her new song "Summer Cool," both of which SoulBounce is ecstatic to exclusively world premiere.
"Summer Cool" is a laid back number that blends soul and jazz with Malachi's melodic vocals and loving lyrics. Although "Summer Cool" will be in heavy rotation on our summertime playlists, Carolyn shares the deeper meaning behind the song: "I wish for all women real love, love that illuminates our natural strength, abilities and intelligence. 'Summer Cool' is a testament to love as it should be: empowering and liberating. This love exists. I am a witness." When Malachi sings, "Let's start right now, baby / I could spend my life with you," this is indeed one gorgeous love letter to the one who takes her breath away.
For the "Summer Cool" visual, Carolyn outshines the beautiful scenery that surrounds her. That comes easy for the statuesque, sun-kissed singer who looks amazing in a yellow jumpsuit and bold maxi skirt whether on dry land or in the ocean. The music video was shot on location in Montego Bay, Jamaica at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall resort by director Ifiok Obot while drone camera operator Lucas Richardson captured stunning aerial shots. The lush island is no match for Malachi, however, who has us hanging on her every word and watching her every move.
"Summer Cool" will be officially released on Tuesday, May 23rd, but Carolyn is giving SoulBouncers the opportunity to download the song for free via her website for a limited time. Get into Carolyn Malachi's "Summer Cool" and let her take you away to a vocal and visual paradise.
