Rising Houston songstress Damaria delivers us an enticing and captivating video for her Summer single “Never Find Another”. Directed, filmed, and edited by the crazy talented Ciara Boniface, the video shows Damaria pushed to the brink by love. Shot almost like a short film, “Never Find Another” tells a story of being decieved by someone you’re in love with, and coming to the realization that you aren’t the “only one”. One of my favorite videos of the year to this point, Ciara Boniface is a true star behind the lens, and Damaria has the makings of a star in front of it.
Produced by StevieBBeatz, the production quality of the song is excellent. Sometimes engineers and producers can over-mix female vocals but not in this case; the quality of her voice shines through. I heard the song before watching the video and thought it was good, but didn’t think too much of it. Don’t get me wrong, Damaria kills it. However, sometimes with songs like these, you need to put a face to the music to really connect – and the video did all of that and more.
Damaria drops her debut EP this month, and “Never Find Another” definitely takes the place of a lead single. With really only Kehlani, SZA, and the legendary Mary J. Blige delivering great female R&B albums this year, the market for another R&B star is wide open. With the right push, I think the ceiling is very high for Damaria.
