Dionne’s music video for single “Green Light,” featuring Richie Lou as the love interest, is a dynamic video with soft, dark scenes as well as gorgeous, sensual costuming that compliments the sultry and rich vocals of the song. The video also contains surprising pops of color in an inventive creative choice that works well for the song’s characteristic pops of synth, drum, and electric piano. The narrative of the music video provides a captivating backdrop to the song’s driving refrain: “Giving you the green light. No more flashing’ red light. Give it to you all night.”
