Bianca Raquel Drops Debut Video
New York singer and songwriter, Bianca Raquel, unleashes her anticipated debut video, “Dear Summer…Our Season Is Over”. Using her smooth,velvety vocals to lure in unexpected listeners, she croons over a recent breakup and the heartbreak that has reared its ugly head. Instead of angrily recounting the ways in which she was wrong or dogged, Raquel serenades her ex-lover about the good times they shared and how their time together has come to a tragic end. However, she isn’t a damsel in distress or frail; she is ready to take control over her life and say goodbye, especially noted in the second half of the song, when she employs the classic Jay Z “Dear Summer” production.
Raquel pairs this dramatically beautiful song, with a group of visuals that borrows from “butterfly effect” imagery. Chris Anthony Hamilton keeps things rather minimal, choosing to keep things focused on the singer; either she is on the screen or her transformed silhouette can be seen. There are multiple shoots where she is superimposed onto smoke or a black screen that really make her pop out, grabbing the attention of all those viewing.
