As promised, Marsha Ambrosius has unveiled the video for "Cold War," a single off her upcoming sophomore album, Friends & Lovers. In the clip, Marsha stars opposite Boardwalk Empire actor Michael K. Williams, whose former castmate from The Wire, Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, is also featured.
The "Cold War" visual begins with a dialogue between Marsha and Michael's characters. "I lost my job, Marsha. For the past month, I've been acting like I'm going to work, but I've been looking...," he tells her before breaking into tears. Marsha wraps her guy up in a hug, and the music begins.
Marsha -- sitting in a white room -- plays "Cold War" from a grand piano. She sings, while viewers look on at Michael, who is back at their apartment, scouring the newspaper for jobs. Things begin to go sour though, with Marsha and Michael's characters arguing over a mess on the coffee table, and his heavy drinking.
"We are broke!" Marsha says during one confrontation. Then moments later, viewers find that she's taken matters into her own hands. She sets up a meeting with a gangster played by, Snoop, who sets her up with what appears to be drugs. Instead of things getting better for Marsha and her guy, though, their situation gets worse. The cops arrive, they uncover the drugs, and that's where the story ends.
Friends & Lovers arrives in stores later this year.
