King Deco - Read My Lips

Jordanian-born, Brooklyn-based songstress Dana Salah, aka King Deco has today unveiled the absolutely stunning and remarkably lavish visuals for her empowering new indie pop anthem, "Read My Lips", which was produced by hitmaking duo Kinetics & One Love, who have previously worked with the likes of Melanie Martinez, Bebe Rexha, and B.o.B, just to name a few. The video, which King Deco co-directed herself along with Aaron Dean, fully welcome listeners into the Decosphere while a swirling kaleidoscope of colors, vivid imagery and interlooping scenes embody her world.

Speaking on the video, King Deco says:

"I grew up in Jordan, a small monarchy in the middle of a desert, with remnants of the Roman Empire sprinkled throughout the country. It's left me fascinated with the aesthetics of ancient empires, so I tried to express that in the 'RML' video through textures and architecture that convey regality. There are also a lot of underwater landscapes and aquatic tones, reflections of the fact that Jordan endured a severe drought while I was growing up. While spiraling through different age-old empires and water worlds, I also filled the video with hidden quotes and subtle references to famous art pieces that speak to some of the larger themes running through my music: themes of empowerment, strong women and the idea of breaking free."

"Read My Lips" is available now on iTunes.
