Green’s prior work established her as a balladeer and this album will add to that; proving her ability to deliver feel-good upbeat records.Totally produced by Kwamé, (Mary J Blige, Christina Aguilera, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia) it is the first of Green’s to entice you to dance; colored with ballads that showcase her effortless vocal prowess. The stand-out first single “Get Right Back To My Baby” features a sample from Maze ft. Frankie Beverly’s classic “Before I Let Go”. It has a current bounce that makes you want to move. Green’s voice is powerful, alluring, and beams over the track.
Green has never followed trends, so don’t expect to hear her trying to mimic any. The music is hers and it’s the kind of record you want to take with you on a road trip, to the gym, and to the office. “Vivid gives the audience the fun, bubbly, and vibrant side of Vivian,” says Kwamé, “A side that her family and circle of friends know well, but the listener rarely gets to witness.” Vivid is undoubtedly full of zeal. “Broken” gives a strong adult approach to loves disappointments, while “Work” expresses energetic desire. “123” urges lovers to always keep something for themselves, and “I’m Blessed” inspires gratefulness.
In the ever-changing music business Green has stayed afloat delivering classy, heartfelt, and often therapeutic music for her fans. Vivid will assuredly continue her legacy in music.
“Some fans want me to deliver brokenhearted music, and perhaps I will in the future if I’m in that space,” says Green. What I can and will always do is produce music that is from my heart. I think that’s the essence of soul music anyway. Vivid definitely won’t be getting you down. If anything, it’ll make you get up.”
