Her movements in the visuals are loud, bold and unfiltered, while the camera soaks her in vibrant hues of red, blue, green, orange, yellow and green. ‘Aint no way to be down when you’re this colourful.
“Tell me you don’t see me and know that I’m way too good for you, Imma split now, Imma call my, Imma call my girls up.”
