Emeli Sande ‘My Kind of Love’ Video: Singer Rescues Ailing Friend With Joyride

Emeli Sande delivers a new set of visuals for “My Kind of Love,” a song featured on her debut LP, Our Version of Events, set for a U.S. release June 5.

Directed by Dawn Shadforth, the British native comes to the rescue of an ailing friend, who is ill in the hospital. Apparently her sick pal has lost her hair but the songstress isn’t letting that stop the fun from taking place. Sande surprises her with a pink wig and takes her on a joyride to see the ocean and take in the sights and sounds of nature.

While the storyline depicts a strong friendship, Sande’s lyrics can also go the romance route. “I can’t buy your love, don’t even wanna try/ Sometimes the truth won’t make you happy/ So I’m not gonna lie/ But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for,” she sings over the piano-laden beat.

The chanteuse said her inspiration for the video came from her time as a med student.

“During my time studying medicine, I found it hard to write, but one of the things that inspired me were the patients and the interaction that they had with their loved ones during their time of illness,” she shares. “When people arrived at the hospital, money and status became irrelevant and only health mattered, which sparked an honesty between people which was amazing. This interaction, declaration of support and love, was the inspiration for ‘My Kind of Love’ and something I wanted to try and portray in this video.”
