Of the song, Noisey wrote, “You can hear the influences they’ve named before – SWV, Toni Braxton Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey – in melodies that pay homage to the 90s and 2000s.” Meanwhile, the music video unfolds in stunning and cinematic fashion. With its high-art dance elegance, the visual thrives on entrancing minimalism before building towards a powerful and passionate climax. The edits ebb and flow with song’s movements, bringing this crossover R&B anthem to life.
“Another Lover” can be found on the group’s universally acclaimed full-length debut, Silk Canvas, out now. They just finished their North American tour with Masego as Silk Canvas continues to captivate listeners.
About Van Jess:
Raised between Nigeria and California, the sisters comprising VanJess instinctually incite an inimitable style. Nodding to the nineties and turn-of-the-century hip-hop and R&B that soundtracked their formative years, the girls have transformed into a phenomenon since arriving with a string of viral covers. 2018’s “Easy” [feat. Berhana & Leikeli47] racked up over 849K Spotify streams in under six weeks as OkayPlayer fittingly described it as “smoothed-out,” and Notion predicted it will “be the sleeper hit of the summer.” Averaging nearly 300k monthly listeners on Spotify, “Through Enough” [feat. GoldLink] crossed the 1-million-mark with “Touch the Floor” [feat. Masego] following. However, their debut perfects that style and primes it to pop off.
