Los Angeles R&B artist, animator, actress, and activist Brittany Campbell has released her latest single “Champion,” along with a self-animated video for National Coming Out Day. The track also features Phil., the New York artist and star of the Chicago production of Hamilton.
Campbell explains the track:
“I’ve written a few songs about making love but none that were inspired by making love to a woman. The song and video is my attempt at capturing some of the feelings it inspires in me....the euphoria and joy in making love.”
Joining the Metropolitan Opera at an early age, Campbell went on to perform on Broadway stages in productions such as Hamilton, where she met girlfriend Candace Quarrels and formed R&B folk duo Mermaid, whose upcoming debut album showcases production by Matt Otto (Solange, Moses Sumney) and Sam Hoffman (Mereba). Campbell's own debut album Stay Gold was self-released in 2018.
