Valerie June Partners With Viacom To Debut "Got Soul" Music Video
In an unprecedented partnership, Valerie June + Viacom have teamed up to debut the music video for “Got Soul”.
Valerie June is a welcomed friend here at OKP, as you have undoubtedly seen in our First Look Friday interview with The Order of Time singer-songwriter. In a genius move, she has partnered up with Viacom channels CMT, BET, BET Soul, MTV Live and MTVU to debut the music video for “Got Soul,” which is a stand-out cut from The Order of Time.
The video, which will begin airing on Monday, July 17, on those platforms, features rave reviews from publications such as The Guardian and NPR. Directed by Jacob Blickenstaff, “Got Soul,” captures Valerie June performing in a variety of settings interspersed with childhood photos showcasing her sincere energy and rare talent.
“The ‘Got Soul’ video is my journey through genre and song. While making this video I was able to find a way to blend my past with the present,” shared June in a released statement.
With the video able to be viewed here at CMT, keep in mind Valerie June will return to the U.S. after an extensive European tour for a run of dates this fall. Beginning Aug. 3 with a free show at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, be sure to circle the best date to see this beautiful voice when she comes to a city near you.
