Vivid Album Cover

This album is fresh and spirited, sassy, and funny at times.€ Says Vivian Green of Vivid, her fifth studio album set to release in 2015 under Producer/Artist Kwame Holland’s label: MakeNoise/Caroline. €œ’It’€™s different from my other albums because of the energy; but very much still me.’ €œThe title is certainly fitting. Green’s prior work established her as a balladeer and this album will add to that; proving her ability to deliver feel-good upbeat records. Totally produced by Kwame, ( it is the first of Green’€™s to entice you to dance; colored with ballads that showcase her effortless vocal prowess. The stand-out first single ‘Get Right Back To My Baby’€ features a sample from Maze ft. Frankie Beverly’s classic ‘Before I Let Go€’. It has a current bounce that makes you want to move. Green’s voice is powerful, alluring, and beams over the track.

€œGreen has never followed trends, so don’t expect to hear her trying to mimic any. The music is hers and it’€™s the kind of record you want to take with you on a road trip, to the gym, and to the office. ‘Vivid gives the audience the fun, bubbly, and vibrant side of Vivian,’€ says Kwame, ‘A side that her family and circle of friends know well, but the listener rarely gets to witness.’€ Vivid is undoubtedly full of zeal. €œ’Broken’€ gives a strong adult approach to loves disappointments, while ‘Work’€ expresses energetic desire.
