“I never stress because I got options,” sings Blenda in her newly released music video for her latest buzz single, “Options.” The Def Jam Recordings artist is reminding people that though they are sheltered in place, things will be OK, despite their anxiety and fears.
She tells FADER: “I’ve spent the last month on Zoom and Skype hanging with friends and I’m very privileged to be able to stay in quarantine and be able to work from home. Not everyone has that option. Therefore I wanted to use my privilege to produce something positive for people to enjoy during these hard times.”
She continued: “It’s terrible that people lose loved ones and our economy is falling apart and you know this crisis really puts our societies on trial although my faith in God helps me to stay focused and positive.”
It’s very kind of Blenda to lend her voice and visual art in hopes of touching someone that’s going through something.
She also closes out the video with a verse from the Bible, Psalm 56:3: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”
