Detroit based hip-hop goddess DeJ Loaf returns with soft edges and a warm-hearted willingness to compromise with the whimsical visual for “No Fear” her first single from her major label debut, Liberated, due out later this year. Our beautifully braided, Gucci-clad heroine finds sunshine in exploration and confession with “No Fear.”
Tinged with Gosh Pith electro-pop feels and hand-claps, we find Lady Loaf wistful and motivated to make the impossible possible with an undeniably upbeat determination. Exploring the tribulations of a relationship with someone who is always on the road, “No Fear” is a much needed burst of positivity. Loaf sings “I’m gonna love you with no fears/We can do this thing together/Close your eyes and take my hand/What we have is something special, baby, let’s just take our chance.” Though the mobile bed gives us Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” vibes and, well, the message is not entirely dissimilar either, DeJ Loaf finds her own sweetly unabashed love language. The video mixes fantastical animation and fantastical means of travel, suggesting summertime wanderlust and encouraging listeners to overcome their love-lorn obstacles.
