A couple weeks ago, Charlotte Dos Santos made her DopeHouse debut with the beautiful and calming “Red Clay” — a song about throwing someone to the side who was using Dos Santos for their own advantage.
Today, Dos Santos shares the video for the single, which will land on her upcoming project Cleo, released by Fresh Selects.
“The complete metamorphosis from larva to a butterfly is one of the most spectacular transformations in the natural world,” Dos Santos began in a press email. “They completely remodel their bodies within the pupa – the caterpillar digests herself and creates her adult parts – and when she is ready, she frees herself from the safety and warmth of the pupa inside the silky cocoon. By using the body as a canvas, we are with this video reclaiming female bodies from a sexual gaze and looking at the transformation into womanhood, and the emergence of a new awakening, through a repeated cycle.”
