Lido Pimienta isn’t slowing down after winning the Polaris Prize (awarded to Canada’s best album of the year) for her latest LP, La Papessa. Today she shares the video for “Quiero Que Te Vaya Bien” following the album’s public release last week. The Caroline Macfarlane-directed visual features lo-fi “home videos” of the artist; clips of a child painting her face are interspersed with footage of Pimienta adorning various costumes and singing in the bath. Lyrics translate to, “I demand it/ affection/ one to desire.” It’s confidently vulnerable: her longing cry, the raw lyricism, the genuine imagery. Watch below.
La Papessa is out now.
