Kelela Debuts Sims-inspired Music Video for “Frontline”

From the beginning of Kelela’s roll out for Take Me Apart, she has outdone herself in every single visual. We were first lifted with her visual for “LMK,” transformed with her “Blue Light,” visual and now, we are speechless for her visual for “Frontline.” Growing up in the early 2000’s was prime for any kid. The music was great, computers were shifting, and we were gifted the computer game The Sims. Today, Kelela released her visual for “Frontline,” which is inspired by The Sims. The visual features Kelela in Sim form going through the perils of a relationship. Nostalgia and euphoria collide in this visual, taking us back to our tween, and teenage years of playing The Sims, and wishing to be a part of Kelela’s world. Check out the visual above, and be sure to listen to Kelele’a album Take Me Apart
