After teasing with the mellow protest anthem “Mind on Fire,” New York born urban folk singer-songwriter Aisha Badru returns with a heartwarming video for her new single “Bridges.” Directed by Nathan Presley the visual creatively tackles overcoming obstacles in a relationship in a creative way that will leave viewers on the edge of their seats. Watch here.

“Bridges” explores the unwavering persistence it takes to traverse the many obstacles that may appear in even the most picturesque romantic relationships” Badru explains. “Often times, the biggest obstacles are ourselves.”

“Bridges” serves as the lead single on Aisha Badru‘s forthcoming debut album due early 2018 via Nettwerk Music Group. The album will also feature “Mind on Fire,” which since its release, has racked up over 5 million streams on Spotify and been featured across some major playlists, including Indie Acoustic and Feminist Friday. The equally poignant video also landed her a spot on Vevo’s Incoming Indie playlist. Aisha‘s distinct sound has quickly begun to capture the attention of many including Afropunk who called it “difficult to describe but impossible not to feel.”

Aisha Badru uses airy vocals and vivid lyrics to draw listeners into her soulfully emotive world. Until somewhat recently, Aisha preferred the confines of her own bedroom for writing and recording music, but her deep desire to connect with people through her music eventually pushed her to share songs online. A few fans turned into a few thousand fans and blogs started to take notice. She self-released her debut EP Vacancy in 2015, and soon caught attention of the ad world when her beautifully moving song “Waiting Around” was selected for a Volkswagen viral campaign.

Outside of music, Aisha is dedicated to philanthropy. Earlier this month, she traveled to Bali, Indonesia to donate a portion of the income she received from her Volkswagen commercial to rebuild a home for a local poverty-stricken family. Read more about their story on Aisha‘s Facebook.
