Demetria McKinney Releases “Is This Love” Video
Today is the day!
Demetria McKinney new music video for her beautiful single, “Is This Love,” has arrived and I love it!
The visual is directed by Robert Christopher Riley (“Underground,” “Dynasty,” “Hit The Floor“) and he also stars as Demetria’s love interest.
(Sidebar: I know they’re great friends, but they’d make a gorgeous couple. I’m just sayin.)
Demetria gave the scoop on the song and video saying:
From the moment I heard ‘Is This Love,’ I knew it had to be part of the album. Lyrically it represented that ‘place’ on each side of the spectrum of love, and the harmonies and nature of it was sooo honest. Immediately, I was like ‘Rob should do this with me.’ I’ve shot photography with him and his eye is awesome and I thought it’d be interesting to move into a directorial space with him at the helm.
Then, I needed a love interest. I literally called him and asked him to be my boyfriend!!!!! Lol! He was like ‘huh’?! I explained the song and we each came with the same ideas for the visual so everything just lined up so perfectly. The song demands the ear, the video demands the eye, so hopefully it’ll spark some conversation between couples in the good and bad of love.
I’ve gotta thank Demetria for trusting me with the vision we both created and, of course, for being so ridiculously easy to work with. It’s like a match made in heaven, lucky us.
Enjoy the video and look for Demetria McKinney’s new album, Officially Yours, to arrive this summer.
