VIDEO PREMIERE: TESSA RAE – “AWESOME”
California native Tessa Rae’s latest fete “Awesome” is a pop hit wonder that belongs on the charts. The single is a glitchy made for the club dance track that authorizes the boss bitch within, and certain to be Ariana Grande approved.
The video is well, awesome. Tessa Rae is a woman who is not afraid to dance in the rain and look seductively at the camera while singing about female empowerment. “Pretty little flower ’bout to blossom…” she croons, and blossom she does right in front of our eyes from a burgeoning artist to a master of her career and ambitions.
Tessa says, “I finished “Awesome” in one night with a friend and always felt like there needed to be a visual for it, so we reached out to the amazingly talented director Dana Trippe,” says Tessa Rae. “I’ve been a huge fan of her photography for a while and was so happy when I learned she was down to collaborate.”
The collaboration brought forth an evocative and shimmering video that is girl power wonderland.
“I was lucky enough to have so many amazing women on set with me, ” Tessa goes on to say, “The all-female energy was really integral in creating the feeling for this video. The song was always meant to be fun. The video is a little unexpected and quirky and it felt pretty empowering for me as we were filming. As females, I think we gotta remind ourselves and each other how awesome we are more often!”
