Rising R&B singer Summer Payton shares the visuals for her single “Spotlight.” The heartfelt track dives into the emotions that come with being in the hot seat and deep down knowing you are in the wrong in the relationship. It’s quite a unique perspective and the singer brings an honest and relatable aspect to these situations with a gripping performance from start to finish. The production is solid as well and exudes the classic R&b/soul vibe with its lush textures and punchy drum grooves.
The visuals play out like a short movie and see Payton as the main character being interrogated. It also blends several iterations of the singer, at some point, she is a boxer, a damsel in distress, and an agent provocateur. The visual clip also ends in a cliff hangar and we just have to wait and see what happens in the next video she releases. “Spotlight” is taken from her debut album Golden Hour.
