Remy Ma‘s putting her “pretty brown eyes” on full display in her new music video for “Melanin Magic.”
The song, which features vocals from Chris Brown, is an ode to self-love and black beauty.
In an open letter to fans about the video, Remy writes, “Did you look in the mirror today and recognize your beauty and your worth? I know it’s hard when people judge you based off your skin tone.”
“I wanted to make ‘Melanin Magic’ to remind you that you are black art. I see you, and I see past the outside, your beautiful heart is worth love and appreciation.”
She continues, “Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t enough. You are smart and incredibly important. Be proud of your natural look and celebrate your hypnotizing beauty.”
“Let your melanin skin shine bright! We call come from different sides of the spectrum, but whether you are dark, light, or right in the middle, never forget how gorgeous you are both inside and out.”
The rapper ends her inspiring message by writing, “Your melanin makes you exactly who you are and your black is so magical!”
Remy revealed a sneak peek of the track in January via Twitter. Her previous release, “Wake Me Up,” features Lil Kim and samples her classic 1996 hit, “Queen B***h.
That’s the lead single from Remy’s first solo album, 7 Winters & 6 Summers, scheduled to arrive later this year.
