A sensual, smoky visual of the crushing yet empowering process of heartbreak, “You’ll Always Love Me” creatively showcases the tumultuous time post-love. Tucked deep into the woods, Kaely isolates herself in a one-room cottage to come to terms with what it means to find strength after a betrayal in her new video, now available to watch on her YouTube channel.
“The video is about a woman finding solace in the only thing she knows: herself,” said Kaely. “She’s in a cabin in nature regaining the strength that she needs to move forward after feeling betrayed. Nature is the strongest form of reinforcement. She’s cleansing her soul with strength instead of stooping down to his level; she doesn’t bother with petty revenge.” Inspired by a true story from her own past, Kaely revisits that pain to package it in a relatable, brutally honest, beautiful single and video that gives hope to those experiencing heartache.
“You’ll Always Love Me” was directed and edited by Los Angeles-based creative director Ben Spink. Max Margolin, Californian cinematographer, is credited as the director of photography. Production assistants, Jackie Sena and Eric Aldama, helped make the magic happen while choreographer, Brianna Lopez, worked her own kinetic magic that added to the emotive visual.
Splitting her time between Nashville and Los Angeles, Kaely’s meaningful, emotive music makes a name for itself across the nation. She transcends the label of singer to get down to the grit of what it means to be human. At times reminiscent of a more eclectic Laura Welsh melded with Wanda Jackson, Kaely’s brand of soul takes on many shapes – from heart-quivering dreamscapes that sound like an echo response to Jeff Buckley’s most rousing and progressively intimate ballads to foot-stomping blues romps that make you wonder if Stooges-era Iggy had a sex change.
