Vivian Green Releases New Music Video for “Vibes” – Watch Here!
Longevity relies on progression. A lasting catalog evolves with its creator, growing, changing, and expanding in tandem to the artist. Once again, platinum-selling and critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, actress, and activist Vivian Green continues to progress six albums into her illustrious career on the aptly titled, VGVI [Make Noise/Caroline]—pronounced “vee-gee-six.” Driven by the show-stopping voice that enchanted millions upon her emergence with 2002’s gold-certified debut A Love Story, the record sees the songstress tread new territory yet again. Vivian presents a strikingly kaleidoscopic about face with her remarkable sixth album. Helmed by multiplatinum producer Kwamé (Mary J. Blige, Keyshia Cole, Christina Aguilera, Fantasia).
The second single “Vibes” illuminates Vivian’s progression. The video filmed in Townsend Georgia was directed by famed photographer/director Derek Blanks. Elsewhere, she revisits Vivid favorite “Just Like Fools,” but with re-recorded vocals and a cameo from none other than Musiq Soulchild. Their two voices entwine in heavenly harmony over the horn-punctuated production. VGVI concludes with one of her most powerful and passionate performances yet. The finale “Stop Sleeping (See The Light)” sees Vivian embrace her platform like never before.
In the end, VGVI expands on Vivian’s legacy as her brightest, boldest, and biggest body of work to date. “I hope people can feel the emotion. When they hear it, I want them to be able to live with it. It’s a little different for me. You can work out to it, cook to it, clean to it, and do all of those things we do. I want this to be one of those records that becomes a part of your life.”

Outside of music, Vivian’s voice echoes throughout culture. As an actress, she appeared in the Golden Globe- and GRAMMY Award-nominated film De-Lovely as well as the TV show American Dreams. Last year she appeared in the stage play “Two Can Play That Game” an adaptation of the original film featuring Vivica Fox, Gary Dourdan, Columbus Short, Porsha Williams and Carl Payne. Vivian starred as Vivica Fox’s best friend and performed some of her classic hits.
Vivian also remains a staunch advocate for the rights of children with special needs spearheading the #IamDifferentIamHuman PSA campaign. Her organization “I am different, I am Human” brings awareness to the 57 million people in the United States with a special need, particularly children.
After 15 years in an industry that continues to define itself by the tides of change it is impacted by, Vivian Green is still standing. And while she has enjoyed the robust support of a fan base that has come to rely on her for a specific, she too has changed. VGVI is a shimmering reflection of that change.
