Originally released on December 1, 2015 on Youtube and MTV.com - Chocolate Spoken Word Mix
The Chocolate Spoken Word Mix music video is a love story between two African-American Gay men, shot in home video style. Martone, the singer reminisces over his relationship with his partner with the song as narration. The video was shot in Detroit, MI and premiered on YouTube and MTV.com on December 1st and 2nd 2015 consecutively.

This is the first time in the history of music where an openly gay African-American artist is the principal character depicted in a love scene featuring two men in a music video . Yes, it has been done on films and television shows but never in a music video where the artist in the lead subject.

Making the Video

"The music video was shot with a home video camera in black and white style, with the date and timestamp left on, and is intended to be my memories of my relationship with the man that I love. The song, Chocolate Spoken Word Mix, serves as a narration; as if I am watching a home movie. Further, the purpose of the repeated scenes in the music video are to show how good that particular moment in time was. I believe that it is pretty straightforward, especially in conjunction with the lyrics of the song. All in all, I am pleased with the outcome. After posting it on MTV.com and YouTube, I realize the responsibility that I now have, as an LGBT singer/songwriter, and it is my hope that I can live up to or go beyond what is expected of me as an artist".

The Evolution of Martone 1st and 2nd Editions are available where music is sold online.

Directed by Jason A. Michael. Singer, Martone reminisces about his relationship with his love interest, throughout the video.

The video is the first part in a two-part series of videos for the song Chocolate Spoken Word Mix and Chocolate | We Go Down.
