A few months ago we brought you Lion Babe‘s feisty debut single, ‘Treat Me Like Fire,‘ and now we have a bangin’ bootleg to share with you which comes courtesy of the UK’s Star Slinger! He’s given it a breakbeat edge which really works with Jillan’s sultry vocals. Make sure to grab the free download!
Just as ‘Treat Me Like Fire‘ serves a fresh new take on today’s RnB, the video to accompany it does the same by keeping current with today’s trendy indie video styles. In it, Lion Babe incorporates mother nature and includes the four elements as lead singer, Jillian, shows off her skilled dance moves in the wind set against a bonfire, a forest, and a water cave.
Three seductive outfits make up the video’s fashion including a stunning gold lion costume made up of only gold paint, a mesh tank and a larger than life wig. With just one song and video, I see a lot of potential for Lion Babe and I’m still excited to hear more from them.
What do you think of their debut?
Grab a pair of twigs (or your lover) and start the friction to the tune of the debut single from Lion Babe, ’Treat Me Like Fire.’ Lion Babe is a New York based band starring Lucas Goodman and Jillian Hervey (daughter of Vanessa Williams) who recently guest starred on RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race.
To use some drag vocabulary, ‘Treat Me Like Fire’ serves us some Lauren Hill realness. It’s a nice and smooth RnB track that is so reminiscent of Lauren’s ‘Tell Him (Sweetest Thing)’ and even fits perfectly as a sequel- if you will. No album or EP is out as of yet but you can grab this track on iTunes as more should be released in time.
If you live in New York and love this track as much as we do, be sure to check them out this Friday at Left Field for their first show and video release. Bring the fire.
