“When I was writing the song “Dream Girl” it wasn’t really inspired by any one girl in particular,” Gabriel Nightshield explains, “but more an amalgam of the women that I have in my life and all the wonderful qualities that I admire that makes them the strong independent women that they are.” The Native American Music Award Winner just released a new video that is receiving excellent responses. Titled “Dream Girl”, the video features this Rosebud Sioux rapper's expert rhymes and clever wordplay in a tribute to his ideal female.
“I thought “Dream Girl” would be the best way to re-introduce myself to the scene and get people excited for my upcoming 6th album and final solo album, “The Addiction”, that I look forward to releasing in the Fall of this year,” Nightshield notes. In order to deliver the consistently outstanding music that his audience expects, this Native rapper turned to some of the heavy hitters in his field. “The video was directed by Morningside Films, who’ve done a lot of work with Atmosphere, Juicy J, Wiz Khalfia and a lot of other people you may be familiar with,” Nightshield states. “Kilo Trackz sings the chorus and is a very talented artist who’s also from the Rosebud Reservation, where I’m from, so I thought he’d be perfect for the song,” he continues.
Since the song stresses the beauty and grace of ladies, choosing the women in the video was especially important. “The women in the video, Ileana and Hunter,” the award-winning artist emphasizes, “I think embody the traits of the song to a T so it was a no-brainer to ask them to involved in the shoot.” Honoring women and displaying respect form the foundation of Nightshield's latest video.
