Exploring ENNY's Collaborative And Creative Process

ENNY, the British-Nigerian singer and rapper, has made quite an impression on the music scene. This year, she dropped her latest EP, "We Go Again," featuring the banger "Charge It," complete with a cinematic music video co-directed by ENNY herself and Otis Dominique. It's a video that not only highlights her musical talent but also showcases her potential to make a mark in the film industry.

ENNY's journey into the spotlight began with a series of striking singles, including the soulful Peng Black Girls which grabbed the attention of music enthusiasts. Her lyrics are filled with depth and authenticity, touching on themes like self-discovery, growth, and the challenges faced by today's youth.

Her collaboration with Otis Dominique is a testament to her creative prowess. Otis, who previously directed ENNY's first music video for Peng Black Girls, possesses an unparalleled creative energy that perfectly complements ENNY's artistic vision. Their partnership transcends mere business; it's a friendship and a mentorship rolled into one.

She shared her thoughts on their collaboration: "Otis is just a sick person off the cuff... I wanna go into directing, and he's nurturing my interest in it. It's more than just a business relationship. It's like a friendship, and he's teaching me a lot about the directing vibes."

When asked about the inspirations behind the Charge It music video, ENNY cited the iconic 1970s show Starsky & Hutch and the blaxploitation classic Foxy Brown. These references are a testament to her desire to create music videos that allow her to explore different facets of herself, in line with her belief that in music videos, artists can be an elevated version of themselves.

ENNY's We Go Again EP signifies a significant milestone in her artistic journey. She views the project as a reflection of her growth as an artist and as a young woman. The EP's unique production process, involving collaboration with an array of producers, reinforces the idea that there's no one-size-fits-all formula for creativity.

ENNY's experience in co-directing the Charge It music video with Otis Dominique was especially poignant for her. She remarked, "It's nice to step into new versions of yourself." This sentiment encapsulates her ongoing evolution as an artist who is unafraid to venture into uncharted territories.

As ENNY continues to captivate audiences with her music and visual storytelling. Her genuine approach to her craft, her willingness to push boundaries, and her artistic authenticity are sure to make her a lasting and influential figure in both the music and film industries.
