Music Video of the Day: Laura Mvula ft. Nile Rodgers “Overcome” (2016)

Remember when Laura Mvula released her debut album Sing to the Moon back around 2013? It seemed like many corners of the music industry were instantly captivated by the British singer-songwriter’s ability to weave some beautiful lyrics with some incredibly textured arrangements that saw her fuse jazz, soul and pop together with gorgeous flair.

Now, in 2016, Mvula returns with a track that is everything we’ve loved about the artist and to go that little extra bit further, we see her team up with the iconic Nile Rogers for “Overcome”. The music video is stunning; from the striking gold make up Mvula sports, to the choreography. The lyrics, about overcoming oppression, are presented in an uplifting way and with Rogers’ unmistakably guitar work in the mix, “Overcome” is instantly catchy.
