(Los Angeles, CA – January 21, 2022) Inspired by the intricacies and nuance of Black beauty, Black culture and the Black experience, Los Angeles-based R&B artist Sha’Leah Nikole crafted this powerful music video for her track “Mahogany,” out now. Designed to showcase her deep appreciation and admiration for the culture that shaped the songwriter’s life, she enlisted the help of director and TV writer Nina Gloster (Issa Rae Presents: Rap Sh*t, Lee Daniels’ Star) to bring her concept to life. The vibrant video features the songstress alongside women and men of various shades and sizes not normally depicted in mainstream media. Highlighting the importance of diversity, representation and the beauty of generational legacy within the Black community, the songstress felt it paramount to cast her mother and grandmother alongside her in the video. It was important to the artist to work with a predominantly female crew to give prominence to their talent and skill in a male dominated industry. On the upcoming EP, Work of heART, scheduled to be released later this year, the songwriter will touch on themes including self-discovery, love and vulnerability. “Mahogany,” the soulful track by Sha’Leah Nikole is currently available on all musical platforms.
