Idyl - Music Video covering Aaliyah's "Try Again"

The Indies presents Idyl and her music video to her interpretation of the Aaliyah song titled Try Again

The Indies generally steers clear of featuring cover songs, but this is a worthy exception. A emerging French artist known as Idyl did a tasty acoustic version of "Try Again", a song that was originally released by the recording artist Aaliyah on February 22, 2000, less than two years before she tragically died at age 22, exactly 16 years ago today on August 25, 2001.

The song was written by Static Major (R.I.P.) and Timothy Mosley (known professionally as Timbaland). The song was produced for Aaliyah by Timbaland, who also appeared in the video. Aaliyah's version of "Try Again" reached number one on several radio airplay and sales charts, including #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. There have been numerous artists who have covered the song since that time.

The music video to the interpretation below, by Idyl, was executive produced by Shimera Films, directed by Jali with Julien Cherpion as Cinematographer.

Fans of Aaliyah have never forgotten her and have propelled her to new heights since her death. She is listed by Billboard magazine as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history. She will be forever missed, and her music never forgotten.

Private Party - Gloom

The Indies presents Private Party and their music video for their track titled Gloom

Private Party is a rap act that consists of two guys who have known each other since the fourth grade. They figured out, when they were young, that music was everything that mattered. They finally packed their bags for Los Angeles, California, to pursue their desire to make records. Their rap in the track below is about the difficulties of pursuing such dreams, the harshness things like fake friends who talk badly behind one's back and takers who don't want to give back. Those are human traits that are all too common in the world, but the idea is to leave the negative forces behind and stick to the plan.

The video was directed by Shoots Blayr, shot by Chyeahhh and produced by Goldy.
