R&B hitmaker Denise Julia has announced that she will be dropping the music video for “Sugar n’ Spice” on February 3.

The announcement was made on February 2 via social media, where she revealed that the music video will be out on February 3 and was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Samantha Lee. In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), she wrote, “I’ve always believed that a woman’s love is one of the most powerful things in this world. While I’ve been open about my sexuality throughout my career, I’ve recently realized that my feelings extend beyond someone’s gender or preferences.”

“In my debut mini album, Sweet Nothings (Chapter 1), there’s a song called ‘Sugar N’ Spice’ that personally stands out in terms of the way it was made. It’s a light, positive, and love-filled track, and interestingly, it’s the only one in the album celebrating a woman’s love. This song reflects my belief that love is love, and everyone should be free to love whomever they choose. This message isn’t just for the queer community; it’s for everyone who believes in love, no matter its form.”

“I want to share the beautiful experience of falling for a woman, something I treasure so deeply. I’ve never been so excited for a music video to come out, and I hope you celebrate love with me in all its beautiful forms.”

Denise Julia had explained earlier that the song was written for a girl. In another Tweet after the filming of the music video, she shared, “[J]ust shot the [‘Sugar n’ Spice music video]. [A]s someone whose love life has been dry for nearly a year [I] really miss experiencing a woman’s love… it’s just so pure, beautiful, and incomparable.”

“Lackin,” another track of the album, was chosen as one of Billboard Philippines‘ Top 25 songs of 2023. In the review of the song, we wrote, “Denise Julia’s debut mini-album is a long time coming. We’ve all been (not so) patiently waiting for it, having heard bits and pieces of its tracks on TikTok throughout the year and “Lackin” definitely did not disappoint. It’s fun, empowering, and just immensely catchy — you can guarantee that we’re all singing that second verse word for word.”
