LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Raw, heartbreaking yet totally optimistic!
LA-based cinematic pop artist Bri Oglu has released the official music video for her single “Enough”.
A sultry-pop ballad that explores the complexities of heartbreak, addiction, and the resilience of leaving behind a toxic relationship. The single is off Somewhere Else, her latest EP.
“Enough” recounts the loss of a relationship in an unconventional growth mindset, celebrating the strength of letting go of a toxic dynamic.
Alternating between personal, penetrating shots and fading memories, Bri Oglu’s performance breaks the fourth wall while also letting the viewers into intimate snapshots of the relationship.
I wanted the video to depict the highs and lows of dating someone unwell, juxtaposed by the light and sense of self that surfaces when you move on.
Through transparency which is both heartbreaking and hopeful, Bri Oglu prioritizes taking control of her life.
Hope you find some peace
Hope you fall in love
Hope you remember me
And know you’re enough…

The video is directed by Jacquie DiTroia, shot by Alex Velasco and stars the artist alongside Will Snyder, who also produced the single.
It holds a nostalgic and bittersweet feeling: the hardship of letting go is privy to tenderness and affection in wishing a past partner happiness and love.
The melancholic breakup scenes contrast with Oglu’s healing, emerging from a picture of confidence, someone who’s not afraid to face difficult situations.
The “Enough” music video shows the possibilities of reclaiming one’s independence and happiness, while reserving kindness and acceptance for the way a relationship ended. The final puzzle piece to Bri Oglu’s EP, Somewhere Else, repurposes heartbreak as learning and combines alt-pop with cinematic production.
