South Africa’s Rowlene wowed fans with a body of work titled “11:11,” her last of 2020. With South Africa returning to lockdown (level 3) and many having to stay home, the celebrated singer thought of a creative way to keep the album in the hearts of listeners. The result is a visual rendering of the album – or a video album if you please.
Here her fans get to watch her perform each track in her “11:11” album from the comfort of her bedroom. Compared to the audio, the visual album is something to embrace and share as well – it draws you into its orbit again and again.
It’s hard not to love the visual album, which creates intimacy with the viewer, showing the songstress in all her sultry talent. We readily count this compilation among those to check out this week if you love South African music and are not afraid for a little visual adventure. Come join us, if you please.
