Sasha Keable and Jorja Smith join forces to great effect on their new duet, "Killing Me." The song catches the two soul singers mounrfully moving on from failed relationships and finding strength in themselves. They sum it up best when they sing: I need to be loved by myself, It's okay to ask for help, Not from you, not from you anymore."
The painful but positive sentiment of the song is matched by the visual accompaniment, premiering above and directed by London-based Olivia Rose. Dining at a lavish feat, the video showcases a series of looks for both artists and a couple of major hats, too.
Speaking about the video, Keable told The FADER: “Jorja and I really wanted this video to be reflective of a real traditional duet, and Olivia did just that. We actually used Beyoncé and Shakira 'Beautiful Liar' as a reference; we wanted the styling to be same same but different, respecting both our individual styles but allowing fleeting moments of not knowing who was who. Olivia also wanted to make sure we showed the true emotions of the song but through the female gaze to perfectly match a song all about us as women realising our worth.”
"Killing Me" will appear alongside recent singles "Exception" and "Don’t Get Lost" on Keable's upcoming EP Intermission, due later this year.
