Andra Day released two music videos for her single “Rise Up,” one of which she collaborated with director M. Night Shyamalan.
Described as the “Inspiration Version,” the M. Night Shyamalan-directed clip (shown above) follows a couple, a woman and her disabled partner, as they go about a daylong date. On Twitter Shyamalan joked, “And by the way, there’s nothing threatening about the @AndraDayMusic video! Nobody gets killed! Just plain old emotion.”

The second version, dubbed the “Introspective Version,” films Day in a beautiful forest. On Instagram, Day gave a few words on Shyamalan-directed video. She wrote:
"Hey Fam! This is my baby, been waiting to get this out to you all. A lot of prayer and fighting for this. Thank you so much to M. Night Shyamalan for directing, and his entire family for being a part of this project. You all are such a blessing to me!"
