The singer and activist said she wanted “Pretty One” to convey “a journey about finding yourself, giving your power away, reclaiming it and owning it.”
Mila Jam is known to her fans as both a creative multi-threat and an outspoken transgender rights activist. Turns out, she makes a pretty convincing divine being too.
The New York singer-songwriter on Wednesday unveiled the video for “Pretty One,” the title track of her new EP. In it, she cavorts with a celestial dance troupe in the sanctuary of an abandoned church before promenading down the aisle in a flowing white gown.
But “Pretty One” doesn’t end in matrimony. In an interview with HuffPost, Jam said the 1980s-inspired track is meant as an anthem of self-empowerment and, as such, reflects “the goddess in me.”
Working with director Frank Boccia and Broadway choreographer Paul McGill, she wanted the video to be rife with spiritual imagery and convey “a journey about finding yourself, giving your power away, reclaiming it and owning it.”
