Camille Rae has released the music video for her new single I Need Me.
Directed by Jacob Long, the video was released on Rae’s Facebook and it took two separate shoots and three different edits to complete.
“Working with Camille Rae on this music video was all about bringing her vision for the song to life,” said Long. “We shot in a studio in downtown Knoxville where she gave a very real, very emotional performance in the video that comes through the screen. It shows her range and the scope of where she is headed as an artist.”
“I Need Me is extremely important to me personally and artistically,” said Rae. “So I appreciate Jacob’s patience with me throughout this process. I was very particular about the music video’s sensitivity and the message I wanted to deliver. The lyrics are autobiographical about a situation where I felt like I was forced to conform to a life that didn’t fulfil my happiness… but I had the courage to make a change.”
I Need Me is steadily climbing up Music Row’s Country Breakout Chart where it currently sits at number 34. It’s the first of Rae’s radio singles to hit the Top 40 and she is currently the fastest rising independent country artist to chart since Texan, Aaron Watson.
