Bursting with Latin percussion, classical guitars, and brass instruments, Sheila E. returns to the scene once again with the lighthearted and airy “Lovely Day”. Filled with vibrant culture and amazing energy, she takes her songwriting to a new level with a clip that is sure to brighten your days with its uplifting message and infectious grooves. Join HIP Video Promo as we escape into “Lovely Day.”
By now you should be well aware that Sheila E. is a fearless multi-instrumentalist, as well as an actress, mentor, and philanthropist. She has provided percussion and drumming expertise for years, as well as playing the part of musical director for numerous bands and television presentations. Although known for her exceptional work in the background and studios, her solo albums have charted across the globe and spawned such hits as “The Glamorous Life,” “A Love Bizarre,” and “Bell of St. Mark.” Her own Stilettoflats Music label exemplifies her strength as not only a gifted songwriter, but it also allows her to remind us of her depth as an artist.
On her latest album ICON, Shelia presents listeners with beats and rhythms that for four decades have compelled people to dance. While this Oakland native began her career collaborating with greats such as Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, and Diana Ross, and most recently with Kanye West, Beyonce, Ringo Starr, and Prince, her songs are reminiscent of her cultural endeavors. From the artist who brought you “Fiesta” and “Mona Lisa” comes Shelia E. with her return single for “Lovely Day.”
The airy and transcendent scenes of “Lovely Day” bring this clip to life. Sheila E.’s strong and lighthearted demeanor makes for a video that is enriching and energetic. Director Peter Michael Escovedo displays Sheila in the brightest of lights, sending forth a calm and complacent feeling for viewers. The narrative behind the story is equally engrossing as we see the early stages of love in the making, with enough butterflies to fill all of our stomachs! “Lovely Day” is one of those feel-good songs that you can’t get enough of, and you won’t once you experience it for yourself!
