Elijah Blake Gets Symbolically Seductive in ‘Strange Fruit’ Video
Elijah Blake gifts fans with some sensuality in the visual for 'Strange Fruit,' a song off his new EP, 'Drift.' The Sean Alexander-directed video is a bit of a trip to watch, too.
If you know the story of Adam & Eve, you get the gist of the symbolism that's going on here. Blake becomes one with nature as famous imagery like the serpent and the apple come in. There's also a random frat boy stepping sequence for good measure.
"I'm talkin' bout you and me / A little time and some privacy / Gettin' up on that late-night creep / But tell nobody what we do / When we off on that strange fruit," the Grammy award-winning songwriter sings on the Illangelo-produced track.
'Strange Fruit' appears on the eight-track EP, which features production by No I.D., and Pop & Oak, among others. J. Cole even appears on a song called 'Vendetta.'
Blake may have doomed man for eternity in the clip, but the good news is that the 'Drift' EP is available now.
