Watch List: Ro James Makes You Feel Blessed With 'Holy Water'
Ro James has the name, style, and sound of star in the making. The latest to come from the musical soul is in the form of a video for his track "Holy Water." The song appeared on James' major label debut, Eldorado, on May 27th, 2016. The lead single from the album, "Permission," is almost at 17 million streams on Spotify, but right now it's all about the new music video.
The visual takes us into the desert. In the beginning we hear a quote from some speaker saying "humans, by nature, are sinful creatures." Throughout the story we watch Ro James and a significant other go through the trial and trepidation of a relationship. Flashbacks of the singer carrying a shovel only leave us to suspect something bad about to happen. Sure enough, the closing shots are the couple in a dugout hole and a carved out sentence reading: "I never loved you." One for the feels.
