Amanda Barise is a New York City-based R&B/Pop singer-songwriter from New Jersey. Not too long ago, she released a music video for her “Money Problems” single.

Amanda Barise – “Money Problems”

“This video was so much fun to shoot but wouldn’t have been possible without my amazing producer and big brother @destynhill, cinematographer @motionncrew, and glam team @theylovenanii and @mayaadele_. Last but certainly not least my father Anthony Barbarise who has always supported my dreams any way he can. So much love to everyone who worked hard making this vision a reality! ❤️.” – Amanda Barise

The Destyn Hill-directed video finds Amanda Barise walking outside in the dark. She lays down on a mat, surrounded by white candles. Shortly afterward, she does a quick ritual and the candles’ flames come to life. The following scene finds her inside an empty cathedral building staring at an elementary-school version of herself. In the end, Barise wakes up and realizes she’s having a dream.  

‘Money Problems’ contains a relatable storyline, soul vocals, and a spunky instrumentation flavored with hip-hop and neo-soul elements.
