Coco Jones joins Babyface for new ‘Simple’ music video
Last month, Babyface revealed their highly anticipated Girls’ night album. The project featured vocals exclusively from today’s hottest female R&B artists, including Ella Mai, Queen Naija, Ari Lennox, Kehlani, Doechii, Tiana Major9, Tink, Babe Tate, Sevyn Streeter and many more. Girls’ night was co-produced by Babyface and Rika Tischendorf.
Yesterday (November 1), the legendary hitmaker returned with the album’s final offering, the official music video for “Simple.” The new music video is directed by Sara Lacombe and puts Coco Jones front and center as the lead vocalist. On the song, Jones says she struggles with her trust issues when it comes to love:
“I wanna believe in us, wanna be cool, wanna be cool but baby, I’ve seen too much / Just be real, can I be honest? I don’t believe in love / The more you give, the more you receive, I don’t want to feel uncertain/ I don’t do that anymore, yeah, I’ve been jaded / So go ahead and say it, I put my guard up (Mm) and you know, and you know why / So complicated but it’s that’s how we made it / got my ways and you got your ways too, remember when we had nothing in between”
In a recent maintenanceBabyface shared his approach when creating Girls’ night, which was to sit back and let the ladies shine. “It was a place to showcase those voices that I love,” he said. “I didn’t want to step on them. I didn’t want to age him. I didn’t want to be the creepy old uncle. I wanted to be in the room, give advice, and that’s it.
