The critically acclaimed Puerto Rican/Cuban songstress Sabrina Claudio has delivered her entrancing new single “Holding The Gun” alongside a striking and cinematic companion visual. “Holding The Gun” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE. Watch the Bonnie & Clyde inspired journey into madness and obsession on Sabrina’s official YouTube channel HERE.
“Holding The Gun symbolizes loyalty and an everlasting type of love,” says Sabrina. “I wanted to make sure that showing violence was not a factor within the visual as violence, conceptually, isn’t what the song is about. The blood & insinuation of crime represents the lengths one would go when so deeply in love.”
According to PAPER, who premiered the video earlier today, “it’s pure, delicious cinema.” “Adding to her catalogue of stormy, sultry neo-R&B that frequently gets her listed alongside folks like SZA, Jorja Smith, Daniel Caesar and H.E.R…the song, as always, hinges on her angelic, liquid velvet voice, which stretches out over atmospheric strings, and a syrupy pulsating beat.”
“Holding The Gun” marks the first official single from Sabrina’s confident, collaborative and empowered new body of work due to arrive later this year. The track follows the seductive “As Long As You’re Asleep” as well as recent collaborations with Wale on “All My Love” and BURNS and A$AP Rocky on “Energy.” In April, Sabrina made her captivating debut Coachella performance impressively commanding attention from the festival’s main stage, garnering love from PAPER, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, New York Mag and more.
This fall, Sabrina will embark on her biggest North American headline run to date. The “Truth Is Tour” – featuring backing from her live band – kicks off September 21st at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA and travels the U.S. and Canada through early November. Sabrina instantly sold out her London show at Brixton Electric on November 19th and high demand also led to the announcement of a second LA show at The Wiltern on September 22nd.
