R&B singer/songwriter Ryelle, renounces the full short film for her new ‘SOLO’ EP, following the release of her ‘Cinderella’ music video on June 11. The short film, starring rapper Mims, tells the story of a modern Cinderella, inspired by the current state of Ryelle’s career. Directed by Diego Cruz (director of Fabolous’ “Cold Summer” video), the short begins with Cinderella as the first record from the two-song project.
Symbolizing the essence of time in the context of love and romance in the first half of the short, Ryelle flips the script in the second half, with the song ‘Playa’ (produced by Pryme & Keyzz, credits include French Montana, Jadakiss, etc.) emphasizing confidence and self-empowerment for women. She made it clear with ‘Playa’, that it’s possible to create your own happiness from within.
Certainly, she is one to advocate for girl power, seeing as how she wrote, arranged and engineered ‘SOLO’ from her small New York Apartment. She was also the head of production for the short film.
“SOLO is a statement of independence and strength. It serves as a symbol of strength for all women, letting them know it’s okay to want love, but if you don’t have it, it’s also okay to be single and go through periods of your life ‘solo”, Ryelle told Hollywood Life in an interview.
