Antonique Smith stands up for her life and love in the brand new music video for her single “Hold Up Wait A Minute (Woo Woo).” The R&B songstress storms the streets of Los Angeles in the Larenz Tate-directed visual and delivers a captivating performance of the retro-inspired song from her forthcoming debut album Love Is Everything. The video also features cameos from Lance Gross and Vine sensation King Bach.
While the song focuses on a tumultuous relationship Smith is quick to point out the universal appeal of its message. “It’s time to take the power back for all the injustices in our lives – from Mike Brown to the kidnapping of innocent Nigerian girls and all the demoralizing issues in between. This is an anthem for people worldwide that demand respect. Hold Up Wait A Minute!”
Her album, Love Is Everything, is due out early next year and boasts production from Toby Gad (Beyoncé, Fergie), Danja (Justin Timberlake, Usher), Jukebox (Willow Smith, Eve) and the elusive icon Dr. Dre. “It’s an album that walks you through the full Love Experience.” says Smith. “Hold Up Wait A Minute”, is the Love empowerment experience, it charges you to Love one’s self, and put your foot down on your own injustices. While other songs show Love in different forms, Humility, Compromise and a bit of Tough Love too! I’ve experienced quite a few things and gained a little bit of wisdom. I’m trying to drop some jewels for both women and men as we navigate our way through Life and Love.”
