The video, directed by Taylor herself (credited as Teyana “Spike Tee” Taylor), references the hip-hop and R&B videos of the late Nineties and early aughts, particularly those by prolific director Hype Williams. Video credits are displayed at the beginning and end of the clip – just like it would be if it were airing on MTV – and Taylor’s gender-flipping fashion matches the style of the era. The opening is a direct, gender-bent reference to LL Cool J’s “Doin’ It,” and the scene in the blue room pays homage to both “Doin’ It” and Toni Braxton’s “Just Be a Man About It.” There’s even a staged recreation of the iconic “fish-eye” tunnel seen in the Williams video for the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems” featuring Mase and Puff Daddy.
Taylor previously released the video for “Issues/Hold On,” a track from her 2018 album K.T.S.E. featuring A$AP Rocky, as well as the NSFW clip for “WTP,” featuring a slew of queer artists and performers. This week, she was announced as a guest vocalist on Rick Ross’s forthcoming album Port of Miami 2.
