Marsha Ambrosius videos are rarely served sans message, so it's no surprise her latest collaboration with Ne-Yo is pretty heavy. The duet "Without You," which was released in August, now has deep visuals for an already emotional song. Directed by Stephen Wayne Mallet, the video features Marsha remembering a tragic period of molestation as a little girl as she sifts through old Polaroids in a basement. Other clips show a happy Marsha and Ne-Yo and how things shift quickly between them as the emotional turmoil (and I'm assuming a lack of communication) gets the best of the relationship. Emotionally broken, the British songstress sings, "Looking in the mirror, I'm all in my feelings/Got me f**ked up out here without you." When Ne-Yo rushes to console Marsha, he rips up her past, lifts her out of sadness and leads her out of the basement and away from the ugly memories. The duo blends perfectly in the song and video, which tackles a tough subject. Watch the video for "Without You" as we await Marsha's sophomore album Friends & Lovers, which is due next year.
