Falana's New Music Video for 'Repeat' Is an Empowering Ode to Resistance, Resilience and Faith

The Nigerian singer's newest single is a timely Women's History Month soundtrack.

Nigeria's own Falana continues to push powerful messages through her music and visuals—this time with "Repeat."

The second single that's to come from her highly-anticipated EP, Chapter One, Falana explains to Hunger Magazine that the track digs deep into the commonalities of the human experience in our world (where change is a constant) and our need for community, spirituality and love.


Directed by Hanna Raschl-McRonald with styling by Yomi Adefala, "Repeat" is a stunning ode to resilience, resistance and faith. The video is a fusion of Falana fluidly moving in her glory and montages of political movements of our past—some of which were women-led.

As Falana declares on Instagram:

I dedicate 'Repeat' and Chapter One to every superstar woman hustling to be her best self, led by faith alone to guide her as she builds castles in the sky, fighting the odds, mending a broken heart, balancing purpose and fear and hopping over disappointments along the way—while looking absolutely FABULOUS ALL AT THE SAME TIME! To mothers, and mothers to be, and mothers who have lost, to sisters and friends, to sisters in Christ, to women breaking boundaries in places where they are told they do not belong, to the women who are STILL working 1000000000000x harder to get respect they are due, to women who are just trying to keep it together, Repeat' is a song about resilience, cycles, resistance and faith!

Check out "Repeat" below.
