We talk to the singer-songwriter about her Gambian-shot video for "Breathe."
Swedish-Gambian singer Seinabo Sey writes pop songs about searching for identity.
She's done so through two impressive EPs and a solid 2015 debut album, Pretend, which earned her a Swedish Grammy Award for Best Newcomer and Best Pop.
Seinabo Sey is now returning with the new single, "Breathe," an orchestral string-backed song about self-love and self-acceptance, which the Swedish-based singer wrote while on a trip to Dakar.
She mentions that she felt at ease in Senegal, but couldn't quite pinpoint why until she realized: "I love it here because I don't have to explain myself to people... I realised that as a black woman, so much of our time is spent explaining obvious things about our culture or ourselves, when she would rather just be."
