As she prepares for the release of her debut EP, Florida-born songstress Savannah Cristina has served a steady stream of singles this year, firmly planting herself as a force to be reckoned with in the music game. Her latest single “Gold Mine” tells a sultry tale of the importance of patience when it comes to intimacy. Keeping the same energy as her previous singles, it is clear that Savannah knows her worth and the value of making her beau earn her affection. Over the smoldering, mid-tempo bop she sings, “I can't give you what you want 'til I know you gon' stay / You got me thinkin' you thought I was a prude / But you just had to prove to me, I wouldn't play the fool.” With a groove and tone that appeals to multiple generations of real R&B lovers, fans of a certain age will especially love the tasteful throwback to Adina Howard’s '90s hit “Freak Like Me” that she interpolates here.
For the Val Vega-directed visual, we watch Savannah and her chocolate-hued suitor caught up in a full-on lovers’ rock. Amidst warm and earthy tones, the couple sways while wrapped in each others arms. As he lays in her lap, she gently strokes his locs as he gazes up at her. The capture is sweet and full of simple romantic gestures, aligning with the sentiment of the song. It's clear that when it comes to love, one need not rush and that good things will indeed come to those who wait.
