When considering Tim Vocals’ 2014 mixtape Timtations, we noted that the Harlem singer often employs his lithe falsetto in service of the kind of street-life stories usually reserved for rappers. But Valentine’s Day is this weekend, a day when even the hardest R&B singer offers up something romantic. So here’s a video for “The Things You Do For Love,” a booming midtempo ballad from Vocals’ recent album RNB (Real Nigga Bars). Directed by Angel “Oz” Navarro, the clip does a lot with a little, setting Vocals against a couple striking backgrounds and letting his charisma do the heavy lifting. Watch below.
RNB (Real Nigga Bars) is out now on Next Records. Purchase it here.
