In the opening sequence of Russell Elliot’s new music video for his single “On You,” a sensual blonde in a leather jacket leans against a white wall blowing smoke rings, eyes closed. He smolders to the camera, and croons, “You’re sweating, baby, from the touch of my lips to your chest. I know I drive you crazy.”
The blonde is Elliot, an independent R&B singer-songwriter originally from DC who is rising up quickly in the Brooklyn music scene. To celebrate the release of “On You,” choreographed by Yaminah Legohn and directed and edited by Zoe Rain (Yes, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ tour photographer), Elliot exclusively premiered the video at Sennheiser’s SoHo pop-up space this January.
