The classically trained vocalist chose a very simplistic concept to visualize her first single “AK 47”. The video features her as a broken woman picking up the pieces accompanied by a bass player in the background. Filmed in black and white the scenes deliver a nostalgic atmosphere every woman has felt after a breakup. Musically, we solely hear Madelyn’s beautiful voice complimented by raw bass and drum beats. The motivation behind the simplicity of her video and song production was to keep the focus on the strong lyrics.
As most love songs “AK 47” is based on the singer’s personal experience. Not only has she suffered from a broken heart but has also been a victim of domestic violence. Writing this song had a therapeutic effect on her and was crucial to overcoming this emotional burden. Madelyn went back in time to write the song and was reminded how much the relationship demanded from her physically as well as mentally. She literally said “It took my soul”. It is said that a heartache is very close to a gun shot, it is for this reason that the artist chose “AK47” as the title, since it represents one of the most powerful guns.
The talented Madelyn Brené has announced to release an R&B remix of her first single as well. Further she shared the plans of shooting several more music videos to singles from her EP “All of me”, which will be released this spring. The video to "AK 47" is viewable at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXPU3b5MFIs. For more information about the singer visit www.MadelynBrene.com.
