The cinematic clip, which was shot in New York, was inspired by Wale’s personal experiences with women and co-stars Eddie Murphy’s daughter, Bria Murphy.
“It was an amazing experience because it felt like a real movie,” said the MMG rapper. “The concept of the video is about a girl. She’s trying to find herself by means of intimacy. She hasn’t really discovered what she wants out of love or lust. It’s almost a true story about some of the girls I’ve been with or courted.”
