Everyone woman wants to be treated like a queen, or in 2014 cases, Michelle Obama. Eric Bellinger continues to prove chivalrous gestures aren’t reserved for obits columns with his latest video.
The Compton crooner is out to give his girl the red carpet treatment in “The 1st Lady,” a dramatic clip that’s directed by Meagan Good. The beautiful actress is currently promoting her new film Think Like a Man Too but Bellinger said her involvement with his mini-movie is nothing but organic.
“Meagan, a long time close family friend, came with an amazing video concept after hearing the song,” Eric says of video. “I knew it would be the perfect way to bring ‘The 1st Lady’ to life.” “She did an unbelievable job setting the tone and storyline. And she kept the substance of the song and the look current.”
The record’s inspirations also isn’t solely dedicated to companionship either, the singer/songwriter explains. “Growing up, I was fortunate to have an amazing example of a great woman with my mother.” “With ‘The 1st Lady,’ I show a different perspective on women than what we see a lot of times in music and media. I want everyone to know there are men out here that respect independent women that do positive things while they hold their man down for all the right reasons.”
