Music Video: Saskya Skys Creole Rendition of Adeles Hello

Kreyolicious Music Video…in which…in which I watch and share my thoughts as I watch a music video by a Haitian artist.
Artist: Sasky Sky
Cellist: Guy Michel
Director: Garnel Ambroise Production: GA StudiosSaskya SkyBefore you even watch this music video, you are intrigued. First and foremost, this is a remake…a Creole version of one of the most explosive songs of the year by the British singer Adele.

What can singer Saskya Sky bring to it? Well, turns out…an abundance…

The opening is a close-up on the singer dressed as a bride. Already, from the anxiety in her eyes, you can tell that something isn’t quite kosher. She’s on the phone, and her platinum and light auburn ringlets tumble in disarray. Nothing on her face indicates that it’s one of the happiest days of her life.

The video ends with the disillusioned woman tossing her bouquet and resigning herself to the truth.

Director Garnel Ambroise uses just a few locations for the video. The singer is on a bridge. The bridge symbolizes the overpass between the ugly present and the past she refuses to let go of.

Sasky Sky
This scene is interesting…it looks like a surrealist painting. She’s in the middle of some forest or arboretum, and yet we can see a skyline. Yet another illusion of her mind?

Ooh, she’s got a handsome guy by her side now. Ooh, he even plays an instrument. How romantic.

So who is this dude? It can’t be the guy that she’s trying to get on the phone. He never comes to the phone. He never makes himself accessible to her. This dude must be a new love interest she’s ignoring. Or a concerned friend who’s worried about her well-being.

Ooh, he snatches the ring off her finger. It’s his way of telling her to get over it. And if you look closely—if you look very closely, like you’ve got bifocals, or trifocals on—you’ll see that it isn’t a wedding band, but an engagement ring. Poor baby, she’s been keeping it on her finger even though her relationship clearly has disintegrated. Bet she bought it for herself.

And then there’s the scene in the forest where the singer is sprawled on the grass, and she’s singing her agony out.

Now ladies, a forest is better than a therapist’s chair. She gets to scream, yell, and cry all she wants, and no one but the birds hovering over her head, and the rodents and bugs sleeping inside the tree trunks can hear.


Saskya stretches out her range really well for this song. Although this is a “foreign language” remake of the song, you hear the same anguish as the original. And you’ve got to admit that she looks good in that dress. Girl, store that thing in the closet somewhere so that the Prince Charming you don’t have to call a million times will walk you down the aisle.

This isn’t a song about a typical jilted bride. Rather, it’s a story of a woman who had been nurturing illusions about a relationship. She wanted to be wed, but instead she got discarded. She wanted her Happily Ever After, but instead got emotionally assaulted with a Chosen Never Never.

The singer puts on her shades at a marina. Ooh, isn’t that a suitcase next to her? Is she about to make an escape somewhere? Is she running away from someone? She looks like a female don in this photo.
