Merna’s Coming & You ‘Better Run’

I don't know who inspired this song and video, but they'd "Better Run" because SoulBounce fave Merna (the artist formerly known as Ayah) means business. The doom-laden, defiant and dangerous song gets the arresting visuals it deserves. Flickering head shots show Merna shrouded in darkness, but starkly beautiful, while the smashed up TVs and forks of lightning create a mean, moody and magnificent atmosphere. Quick cuts to the staccato beat show Merna striding vengefully down a midnight street and silhouetted in the darkness in a style reminiscent of a James Bond credit sequence. Merna killed Ayah and if this video is anything to go by, she won't be the only one to say goodnight. Let's hope Merna stays off the streets and in the recording studio, as this beauty could run and run.
