Back in January we introduced you to Arlissa, the Roc Nation singer who has collaborated with Nas and wowed us with her debut single “Sticks & Stones.” Now the half-American, half-German UK transplant has filmed a Black Cab Session in London, performing an intimate take of the song from the back of a taxi (with a mini keytar, no less!).
As with Solange‘s taxi take, there’s an unpredictability here that heightens the drama and makes you appreciate the vocal acrobatics even more. Especially when an emergency vehicle races by, sirens blaring, and Arlissa grins during the slight interruption. Check it out up top.
Be on the lookout for Arlissa’s debut album later this year.
