Anjulie & Natalia Lafourcade – “Holy Water” music video feat. Phyno
“I know you’re begging and pleading, baby, you can’t hide. Deep down you’re broken and bleeding, barely alive. I’ll take you down to the river on a moonlit night. Feel the fever runnin’ through your bones, way down deep in your soul. Let me give you that holy water.” – lyrics
The audiovisual, directed by Clement Oberto, was inspired by Jana Brike’s artwork. The video features Anjulie in colorful and provocative scenes while she dances in an elaborate tunnel. Also, she grooves inside a tub filled with holy water and exotic flowers.
Anjulie is a name you should remember. With each release, she continues to establish herself as an exciting artist to watch. So far, she has written and collaborated with Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, Diplo, and more. Also, her music has been featured on HBO, ABC, NBC, and MTV.

Natalia Lafourcade signed her first record deal with Sony Music at the age of 17. That same year, her debut album, entitled, “Natalia Lafourcade” (2002), topped the charts in Mexico. Also, it provoked a Latin Grammy nomination in the category of “Best New Artist”.

“Holy Water” single
‘Holy Water’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses rhythmic instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B, afrobeat, and Latino elements.
Anjulie wrote “Holy Water” with Lafourcade and Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike, and co-produced it with Joe Park. The song passed between collaborators over the course of two years from Canada to Mexico. Then it traveled from Nigeria to Korea before being finished in Los Angeles, CA.
