Urban Magazine’s editor-in-chief Dakari Eli returns to the scene with the Official Music Video for her smooth new single “Why Him” (All I Want Is You) from her forthcoming project Black Dove Blue Song.
“Why Him” is an indie late night drive song with jazz undertones, perfect for lovers of both modern and classic sounds. With its sweeping smooth vocals, Dakari sonically emotes the feeling of reminiscing on past love, along with despair that anyone with a heart can relate to.
“Why Him?” was created not out of sadness per se, but out of utter disappointment. How can two people make love to the point of spiritual elation only to have one of them sabotage it out of fear,” She explains. “It’s knowing the depth of the connection that was felt so profound by one person was ruined by the lack of emotional maturity of the other.”
Dakari Eli tests the waters with her sensual vocal ability delivering a catchy, melodic hook on “Why Him.” The single premiered on VPR Radio and is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal with the video now on YouTube.
