Emeli Sandé teamed up with Jay Electronica and Aine Zion to provide some powerful visuals for their new "Garden" collaborative track. The trio can be seen standing in a beautiful garden, surrounded by flowers, trees, and freshly cut fields, as they don their all-black attire. Fans might notice a theme of freedom throughout the video, as the three artists, and extras, are seen wearing attire that is similar to that of the Black Panthers.

The video from Sandé follows the release of her brand new Long Live the Angels album, which dropped this past Friday.

“[Long Live the Angels] is such a personal growth for me,” she told The Boombox. “I really needed the support and encouragement from my sister and my family – just people that would coach [me] through a big time in my life.”

The video was reportedly directed by Charlie Robins, and the track itself is produced by Loco, giving the perfect backing to Emeli's sultry R&B vocals. Electronica later comes in with an emotionally heavy verse, spitting lines like, "Love is like a garden. Love is like a death sentence."

The three talents certainly know how to get viewers and fans thinking a bit more deeply, and it's always good to see Jay Electronica gracing a track with a new verse. Check out the video from Emeli, Jay, and Aine above.
