The video, shot in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, brings Maxwell’s smooth-flowing single to life in stunning fashion. And yes, he is looking as fine as ever.

And aren’t we lucky because Maxwell is headlining at ESSENCE Festival, June 30-July 3 in New Orleans. In fact, his performance will take place on July 1, the same day that the long-awaited blackSUMMERS’night drops. So it will be one epic album release party in NOLA!

It’s been great to have Maxwell back on the music scene. We’ve missed him since his last album, 2009’s Grammy-winning BLACKsummers’night. The world just got a little sexier again.

Watch and enjoy!
