Aaron Beri “Naked” Single/Video Release 

The rather gorgeous Aaron Beri hails from my part of the world originally – the UK – but has now settled in Australia by way of a successful modeling career in NYC. 

Australia is not necessarily the first place you’d think of when it comes to 90s-inspired, super soulful, R&B pop, but what do I know!?  He’s teamed up with the multi-award-winning producer Audius who brings his own sensuous take on Beri’s slow-burning love song “Naked.”  

“Naked” is Beri’s first single off his upcoming album and it feels like a direct evolution from George Michael and Toni Braxton, with a pit stop at Sam Smith and a very distinct nod to 90s Madonna.  It’s soulful and sexy, lush and rhythmically dripping with gorgeous, lusty vocals, soaring and harmonizing like the absolute best kind of 90s R&B.  

The video is a brilliant piece of unapologetic retro cinematic splendor.  A homage to “True Romance” with a good twist of Soderbergh’s “Out of Sight.”  I love a great music video and this one is particularly slick…in a very good way.  The whole package comes together very nicely.  The song is pure R&B pop, classic and classy, old school made fully modern by the beautiful production.  Perfect summer romance, slow dance, no regrets kind of music.  I feel like getting my heart broken just so I can play it on repeat and weep into my pillow!  I hope the album is more of the same!  Loved it!!!!
