Banks is back with a titillating performance in the new video for “Fuck With Myself,” the first offering from her new, as-yet-untitled album.
The video finds the pop singer taking the theme of the song to surreal extremes, exploring both self-love and self-hate as she sings to a life-like bust of her head. She caresses, hits, smears it with lipstick and lights it on fire. Banks surrounds herself with eerily contorted dancers sporting bulbous masks that also bear her likeness.
Banks premiered “Fuck With Myself” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show where she noted the track was the last she wrote for the record. “There’s so many meanings to it,” she said of the cut. “It could be like, ‘I fuck with myself,’ like, ‘I mess with myself more than anybody else.’ It could be, ‘I fuck with myself,’ kind of like, ‘I’m feeling myself.’ It means a lot of different things that I think a lot of people can relate to.”
Banks will release her second LP on September 30th. The album follows her 2014 debut, Goddess.
