Haitian singer Belo has released a new music video, “Banm Nouvel Ou.”
The video, which was officially launched on Thursday, examines the the “lack of support of female musicians” and their struggle in a largely male-dominated music industry.
The release is the first track off of Belo’s upcoming album, which is set for release in April 2014. The song itself was first unveiled in March.
It is filmed in a series of locations in Haiti, primarily the Petion-Ville suburb of Port-au-Prince.
Belo’s girlfriend in the video is played by Haitian rapper “Princess Eud.”
It was directed by Guerrier Jean-Franky.
Belo will launch the video at Place Boyer in Petion-Ville on Friday evening during the Fete de la Musique festival.
