New Video: Escort’s Adeline Releases Sensual Visuals for Sultry Quiet Storm-Inspired Single “Emeralds”

Throughout the course of this site’s eight year history, I’ve written quite a bit about the acclaimed New York-based dance music outfit Escort, which features their indomitable frontwoman and bassist Adeline Michele. Now, as you may recall the French-Caribbean vocalist and bassist has released a solo effort a few years ago but her latest single the Morgan Wiley-produced “Emeralds,” finds Adeline moving towards sultry, 80s Quiet Storm-inspired synth soul reminiscent of Prince and others, centered around a sinuous bass line and Adeline Michele’s sultry vocals.

Directed by Hamadou Frédéric Baldé, the recently released video features gorgeous and sensually shot footage of Adeline and a male dancer, expressively dancing in an abandoned warehouse — and how everything is shot, the video is incredibly sexy without having to try very hard; of course it helps that the video is centered around three very beautiful black people.

Adeline is playing a solo set at Elsewhere’s Rooftop on July 24.
