Xenia Rubinos Shares L.O.V.E. Via Vibe

Spin magazine described the New Yorker’s unique sound as “multi-genre-hyphenate instrumental textures beneath Billie Holiday-esque croons” while DIY simply declared ”Once Xenia Rubinos begins to sing, nothing else matters.”

Now VIBE is premiering a video for Rubinos’ track “L.O.V.E.” which was released on Amazon’s Valentine’s Day compilation Love Me. The clip features a noticeably euphoric Rubinos dancing throughout Manhattan, joyfully interacting with the city’s inhabitants.

As Rubinos explains, "I wanted to shoot a video that encapsulates being ecstatically in love and wanting to scream it from the rooftops, to share that bubbly feeling with everyone. I want to bombard everyone with pure love laughter and excitement! I was inspired by the black joy project which seeks to fill social media with as many uplifting images of POC as possible. This is my ode to brown & black joy, being in love and sharing that exuberance with complete strangers all around the city, feeling that universality of love connecting us all. This is us casting a love spell on the world, this is us showing you brown & black joy, this is us visualizing & manifesting a reality centered on love for one another and the simple joy love brings.”
