If you grew up during the eighties and nineties, it's possible that Clair Huxtable is one of the first characters that comes to mind when you think of TV moms and wives. Although a fictional character, Clair has been held in the minds of many as a symbol of style, grace, intelligence, success, and beauty. Her regal, witty character gave young people a strong positive image of a black woman, one that was rarely seen on television. While for some she served as a role model, for others she was the prototypical spouse, a queen to be admired.
SES’ newest release, “Clair” featuring and produced by D.O.C, pays homage to this legendary figure. The song itself is a declaration of love for a special woman possessing the qualities of the one he sees his whole future with. It speaks not only to the beauty and legacy that can be built when you find someone that compliments you, this song also acknowledges the work involved in building something long-lasting and special with someone.
Characters like Clair Huxtable and Vivian Banks (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) are characters that were conceived from someone’s mind and shaped almost to perfection. When you have that level of clarity and understand what you are looking for, you too can find your version of Clair. Cheers to love.
