EKELLEBody pos­it­ive Cana­dian rap­per Ekelle demands our atten­tion with visu­als for her new single ‘Dark Skin & Tat­toos’.

The video show­cases Ekelle and a man, whil­st it starts-off as a beau­ti­ful love story, Ekelle bares all sym­bol­ic­ally and phys­ic­ally to show a deep­er  mean­ing behind the video which is deal­ing with betray­al.

On the video, Ekelle said, “I wanted to do an abstract con­tract. I wanted to find a sym­bol­ic way to show a break­up that would have people in their feels a bit. I chose to do a white room and have 2 lov­ers with all the joys and hard­ships of a rela­tion­ship writ­ten all over like they were bar­ing their souls,”

“What I want people to take from this is that if it’s not a right fit then it’s not a right fit no mat­ter what you do. You should nev­er for­ce things. It might be hard but it’s best to just move for­ward, don’t block your bless­ings.”

Ekelle is a mul­ti-gen­re artist and song­writer from Toron­to, Ontario. Ekelle rhymes about rela­tion­ships, money, life in the Tdot, women’s issues and oth­er areas that have affected her life to cre­ate a style that she calls ‘Hood Pop’ – Pop­ular music with a street edge.
