The '4 AM' singer tries to convey women empowerment message to her fans by inserting a bunch of movie clips, which show badass female main characters, in the music video.
Melanie Fiona releases an unusual music video for her latest single "Watch Me Work". While the singer sings the song to the camera, clippings of movie clips featuring female stars kicking ass are flashed on the screen. The movie clips include Demi Moore's "G.I. Jane" and Uma Thurman's "Kill Bill".
At the beginning of the video, Margaret Cho gives a brief speech. She says, "If you are a woman, if you're a person of color, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world."
"Watch Me Work" is taken from Melanie's second studio album "The MF Life", which bowed at No. 7 on Billboard Hot 200 a week after it was released in the United States on March 20.
