Whenever an artist has something to say about their work, I prefer to defer to them. Here is the quote accompanying this video.
“It’s separate, the song and the video. The song itself is about the power struggle in a guy and a girl in an argument. It’s the girl always end up winning but the whole thing gets distorted by outside perception and her friends and his niggas opinions and at the end you don’t really even recognize ur voice when your talking. It’s the place you get taken to. The video push that idea to a more global scale and is kind of like a view on how social media and media in general distorts our perception of sex and relationships and how we fall into a sort of prison based on our own biases and prejudices. This guy is basically in a virtual reality prison cuz all he does is look at girls on ig and watch porn and shit but the actual question i’m trying to pose i think is he to blame for looking or are the girls to blame for putting it on display? I think that’s the base level of every back and forth of society. It’s 2 sides with an incomplete view of the larger system at play, and usually both sides are unaware. You know it’s ads on these buildings selling the same thing they outlawing. Very American ya know?” – xy
