Soulful songstress Leela James has released the visuals for her song “Hard For Me,” off her new album, Did It For Love.
In the visuals, James is contemplative, alone in a cabin in a remote part of the woods. She begs her lover to see her value and treat her right so they can stay together. “Don’t make it hard for me baby / I just wanna love you / Let me love you,” she sings.
Hers are words of a woman who loves hard, but refuses to allow herself to be mistreated and walked all over.
Speaking about filming the video Leela explained: “It was interesting to say the least in shooting the video for ‘Hard For Me.’ We were away from everything high in the hills where there was nothing but nature’s peace and quietness as well as a secluded area of a beach. It was serene and at times almost too quiet…but again it served for an interesting and relaxing way to shoot a video. It felt more like a getaway for a day to take some necessary me time to reflect and meditate…which is pretty much the vibe of the video. I hope you enjoy it.”
