Following an acoustic mash-up of “Fairplay” and Cardi B’s “Be Careful,” Republic Records singer/songwriter Kiana Ledé shares an official music video for the acoustic version of her single “Fairplay.”
Wearing a variety of avant-garde fashion outfits the songstress performs the stripped down rendition of the karma-inspired song in front of artistically printed walls.
Previously speaking about “Fairplay” Kiana explained: “I wrote this song when I went through a messy breakup. I got cheated on, and I was in that angry phase that you go through when you have a breakup. It was a blessing in disguise, because that relationship was affecting my growth. I needed that relationship to end so I could grow. A lot of good things were happening to me after that, so I thought, ‘Man, that’s karma.’ I feel like I put my whole heart into that relationship and good things still [came from it], even though he gave up. So what goes around, comes around.”
The new acoustic visual follows her official music video for the song, which was shot in New Orleans and released this past March. Previously speaking about the cinematic video concept she said,
“I think that, most of the time, in movies and even in real life, the woman [who hooks up] gets the blame. It’s almost like the women are pitted against each other. That’s portrayed in a lot of stories. I didn’t want that in this. In my story, I felt like the woman he cheated with was the victim, too, almost. All the blame was not put on her, it was put on the guy. I don’t want women to feel like there’s any competition, because there is not. It had to do with my relationship with my man, and nothing to do with the other woman.”
Kiana Ledé is currently prepping for the release of her debut EP via Republic Records.
