R&B/Neo-soul icon Macy Gray has released the official music video for “Over You” from her latest album RUBY [Artistry Music/Mack Avenue]. The colorful, animated video has a joyous, uplifting spirit that subverts the typical meaning of the titular phrase.
“It’s so great. It’s better than any of the sophisticated, ‘profound’ video treatments you usually get from professional directors. It’s the simple love story that everyone dreams about, it’s a fun cartoon, and I just love it.” – Macy Gray
Artistic creator (and frequent collaborator) Maurice “TeaRon” Watkins felt inspired by both the lyrical content and the trending animation techniques used in so many music videos right now:
“With many videos out there, it’s all abstract images and repeated frames, so I wanted to go up a level from that and create something that had an actual storyline. From there, it was a matter of creating a fantasy world where LOVE is the focus.” – TeaRon
