Wait On Me
The stunning new cinematic music video for Kiana’s single Wait On Me, ft. Lou Celestino, is a tribute to women everywhere, showcasing women’s power, boldness and bravery when it comes to almost everything in life.
The video was inspired by women in Iran who have gone against rules to regain their power and rights by fighting for their freedom to make decisions freely and live unapologetically.-Kiana
Wait On Me tells the story of two lovers who have been kept apart in a prison-like confinement, we see them calling out for each other throughout the video. Kiana takes the role of the female lead who finds an opportunity to make her escape by locking eyes with the prison guard – building sexual tension, and keeping him distracted as she seizes his knife.
The storyline was inspired by an Iranian couple who were sentenced after a viral video showed them dancing in front of Iran’s Freedom Tower. The video takes place in Tehran, Iran – but a dystopian sci-fi version of the city, and shortlisted for 8 categories at the Berlin Commercial Festival.
Both Sina Dolati, the director, and I are huge fans of slasher and horror films and somehow wanted to incorporate that element through a 90s film style of shooting for the specific final end scene.-Kiana
