I am very excited to tell you about French singer/songwriter Petite Meller’s fabulous new single (and video), “Baby Love.”  Although she’s yet to release a full-length album, to me it feels like Meller has already released a few because each single she releases is like a special event.  Her songs are always extremely addictive and her videos are consistently filled with depth you simply don’t get from most music videos, each one like a fine independent film.  In the case of “Baby Love,” Meller has churned out a lush dance track featuring everything from the sound of human teeth and fancy African percussion to hard EDM-style beats along with some of the best sax playing we’ve ever heard in a pop song.  Add to that her sweet, unique vocals, which make you feel the way you do when you see a beautiful butterfly flap its wings, and you have something amazing.   And the video is adorable.  It was filmed on location in Africa and features dozens of African children dancing along with Meller, giraffes and lots of surrealism.  In fact, the video was inspired by scenes from Brigitte Bardot’s 1956 film “And God Created Woman.”
