Whenever Maxwell takes a break from music, we’re left crying out for more. Luckily, when he returns, he always comes correct.
Fans have been experiencing quite the Maxwell drought since most recent album blackSUMMERS’night was released in 2010. That was until he came through with the soothing new single “Lake By The Ocean.” Recently, the R&B crooner delivered some steamy new visuals for the cool and relaxed love anthem.
Filmed in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic (a nod to his bi-cultural roots), Maxwell’s world collides with an exotic love interest, who swings by one of his performances after a hard day’s work.
Of the video, the 43-year-old singer says there’s a deeper meaning to their interaction. “[The video] depicts a world in need of water and two clandestine lovers who meet with liquid dreams, one being the bare boned need for clean water, and another, the performer, who wants to be lost in the watery worlds of love and devotion.”
Check out the video below and sound off in the comments.
