The legendary bassist Marcus Miller features Belgian singer-songwriter Selah Sue on the new music video for “Que Sera Sera”–watch it here.
Marcus Miller’s highly-anticipated album Laid Black was released to widespread acclaim on June 1st. At fifty-nine years of age, he is one of the most respected bassists of all time, having worked with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin to name just a few.
The official video for “Que Sera Sera” is the latest visual from the album. It features Selah Sue, the Belgian singer-songwriter whose fan base has been spreading in Europe and the US ever since NME named her one of the new faces of 2012.
Miller first heard Doris Day singing “Que Sera Sera” as a kid on her popular TV sitcom. In 1973 the song was reimagined by Sly and the Family Stone who added a good dose of funk and groove to the classic. It is this version that Miller reprises in his new video.
Miller’s driving blues bassline picks through the horns and the smooth beat, whilst Sue’s impassioned singing soars alongside gospel-style backing vocals and intermittent organ accompaniment. The song’s message is all about self-love and the lyrics are matched to close-up shots of people staring proudly back into the camera’s lens. Watch it here.
