Adelide: Redefining Modern Music + Forbidden Love With ‘Witness’

For those who appreciate soul-pop music with an edge, anticipation is high for the release of Adelide’s single “Witness.” Hailing from Brooklyn, this talented artist is poised to make an impact on the music scene with her interpretation of a timeless narrative of allure and forbidden romance.

Immerse yourself in the world of “Witness,” where modern-day temptations and fervor abound, akin to the Garden of Eden. Adelide’s enchanting vocals will enthrall you, complemented by beats and captivating melodies that will keep you entranced. This is the kind of track that lingers in your thoughts after its final chords have faded away.

Adelide has joined forces with director and producer Margot Bennett to craft a music video that mirrors the essence of the song itself. Through striking imagery and choreography, the video breathes life into the narrative of “Witness,” offering an experience that’s both visually appealing and intellectually stimulating.

The creative synergy between Adelide and Margot is truly remarkable. According to Adelide, “Margot and I crossed paths at a performance show just as I was delving into the concept of producing a music video. This unexpected encounter gave me the push I needed to bring my ideas to life. Half a year later, we had our team in place and began working on the project.”

A standout moment during the filming of the “Witness” music video involved using a pear instead of the traditional apple. Adelide reveals, “I built a story around portraying a pear as a seductive and feminine twist on the classic biblical apple, yet ironically, I can’t bring myself to actually eat one. The crew found out about this quirk and insisted that I take a bite on camera, which led to me spitting it out. That footage is out there.” Now, that’s true dedication to artistry!

“Witness” offers a glimpse into what Adelide has in store for 2024. If this track is any indication, you’re in for a journey ahead. Infused with ‘80s funk, disco, and soul-pop elements, “Witness” showcases Adelide’s influences and her knack for creating music that balances contemporary flair and timeless appeal. If you haven’t already explored Adelide’s music, now is the opportunity to do so. Her debut self-titled EP beautifully showcased her sound and style, with each track providing a peek into Adelide’s world, where elements of the past and present blend amidst a backdrop of fog machines and flashing lights.

As Adelide pushes the boundaries of soul-pop music, “Witness” stands out as a pivotal moment in her career. With its rhythm, strong vocals, and thought-provoking lyrics, this single is bound to catch your attention and leave you craving more. Additionally, watch out for the version featuring musical artist Melvin Knight, which will be released on May 30th. If you’re up for a story of temptation and forbidden love that will captivate your senses, Adelide has something wonderful in store for you.
