Shot in California in early May, the music video for Black Ice's reggae single, 'We're Lovers', was released this week.

The video which features the Los Angeles-based, Jamaican-born singer and local songbird Sophia Brown, tells the story of a couple who started out as friends as children and eventually became lovers.

"It's my first video, and I am very pleased; the energy in it was great," Black Ice told The WEEKEND Star from his base in Los Angeles. The video that was shot on the beaches of San Pedro, just outside Los Angeles, was produced by Mark Richardson, directed by Lekeith Johnson and edited by Ayo Mikey. Effren Vicarra is the executive producer.

The video opens with a scene showing Brown in an airplane arriving at Los Angeles International Airport just as Black Ice is arriving at the airport in a convertible. It also features scenes of both artistes sipping wine on the rocks along the San Pedro shoreline and cutaways of their characters enjoying their friendship as children. Black Ice was full of praise for the production crew. "I helped with the storyline and they brought it to life," said the singer, who was born Gary Palmer in Battersea, St Ann.

The video should provide a boost to the song that has been well received, the singer said. "Radio personalities here have been great, very positive. It was the first time they were getting to know Black Ice, so it has been great," said the singer who revealed that he will now embark on the work needed to get the video out to as many platforms as possible.

"The key thing is that they (audiences) have something to hear and to see as I deliver some new songs and get some stage performances," said Black Ice, who said he is currently working on making some guest appearances on upcoming shows. Negotiations on those are still in progress.

Black Ice and Sophia Brown recorded the song at Big Yard Studios earlier this year after a chance meeting in the USA.
