In the 90’s and early 2000’s, music videos were about the ability to transcend the story of the record into a visual. Many of us can attest to the anticipation of watching our favorite artists drop music videos on 106 & Park, some of us may have even been late to school because of it. The feeling we felt learning choreography from the video is the exact feeling Liyah is using to bring nostalgia back into music. Now, she releases the official music video for “Slide,” premiered today exclusively on Flaunt.
Liyah is an artist that brings back the creativity of R&B, the type that makes people feel the love that they felt back in 90’s records. Her charismatic and infectious personality in the music video is a direct reflection of artists of past generations such as Aaliyah, Mya, and Ashanti, to name a few. Although reminiscent of past generations, Liyah is holding her own and making it known that she’s leading the way. The confidence she exudes from beginning to end will make any viewer smile from ear to ear. Not one dull moment, Liyah’s comfortability in her own skin is infectious, allowing younger generations to gravitate towards her.
Liyah speaks on the video, “‘Slide’ really puts a spotlight on the type of progression I have made since my first music video ‘Always There’. In this particular music video, I really embraced my position as an artist. It’s the single that lets everyone know I’m here to stay.”
