American Idol winner Candice Glover has released the visual for her Jazmine Sullivan penned song, Cried. The video is shot in black and white and tells the story of couple whose love has gone wrong. The video is an emotional roller coaster. I love Candice’s voice and the song, but I am not sure that this song has a enough ummmph!
It’s a beautiful song, but this is not first single material especially with the present urban radio environment. I think a faster more up tempo song would have been better to lead off with, and then hit us with a power ballad like, Cried. The true test to this song will be if she can deliver a powerful live vocal of this! That will propel her to where she needs to be.
Side note: Listen for Jazmine holding down that background! The music industry needs new music from her STAT!
Music Speaks is due out on February 18
