ZZ Ward Releases Surprising New Video With Giant Ending

ZZ Ward Releases Surprising New Video With Giant Ending
ZZ Ward has released the video for her single “Giant” which, in a surprise ending, reveals her pregnancy as Billboard announced exclusively this morning (watch HERE.) Cleverly done with papercut stop motion, the video is a moving collage and carries the message of empowerment echoed in the song. In the video ZZ is yet again overlooked for a promotion and her frustration turns her into a fearless and badass giant, walking among skyscrapers, deflecting grenades, picking up cars, putting out wildfires all while chasing down her smarmy boss. Along the way, a blinding halo of light follows her.  Redemption comes as she is now the boss and the light reveals her pregnancy.
 
“Giant,” is the latest of a series of new songs released by ZZ over the past 10 months including “Sex & Stardust,” “Break Her Heart” and “The Dark” which carry the theme of equal parts warrior and vulnerability delivered with her powerhouse vocals and plenty of sass.
