The multi-talented R&B/soul sensation, Teyana Taylor, teams up with the legendary Elton John on her latest single, “Lose Each Other,” and self-directed music video from her #1 album, The Album.
The video opens with Elton John eloquently playing a beautiful white piano
“‘Lose Each Other’ is such a special record for me, and I wanted the visual to feel just as big,” said Teyana Taylor. “I told my team ‘you know what would be dope? If I could have Elton John open the video on the piano!!'”
Taylor continues: “Not that I thought it could really happen, but just putting it out there in the universe lol. So as we were working through treatment ideas and solidifying logistics for the video, an international phone number calls me…. and for a second I almost didn’t answer, but my intuition spoke, I answered. All I hear is…’Hello darling, it’s Elton. I’d LOVE to do your video!’ I FREAKED OUT!”
“When Teyana Taylor released her debut album, I became a huge fan. She was a guest on my Rocket Hour and I fell in love with her original spirit,” said Elton John. “Aside from her brilliant music, Teyana is one of the most visually dazzling artists working in music today. So I jumped at the chance to be in her latest video ‘Lose Each Other.’”
Taylor uses “bold imagery, high fashion, and modern dance” to bring new dimensions to the video. She explains more, “As a director I wanted the imagery to be simple, yet powerful, which is why I choose an all-white background and bold looks,” said Taylor. “I wanted my audience to understand how love’s hardships can also be beautiful.”
