Kehlani is not letting quarantine contain her creativity.
While the pandemic has prevented her from shooting a music video, Kehlani is taking matters into her own hands. With the help of some red wine, she shot a video for her new single “Toxic,” which she directed and edited in her bedroom in an hour.
The racy clip finds the R&B siren putting on her own internet peep show. She switches outfits while smoking and twerking in front of her webcam in the grainy footage. “And that damn Don Julio made me a fool for you,” sings Lani while throwing it back.
“TOXIC (QUARANTINE STYLE) OUT ON YOUTUBE NOW. CREATED DIRECTED EDITED BY ME IN MY ROOM IN AN HOUR THANK U RED WINE,” said Kehlani, who gave herself the director name Hyphy Williams.
Despite her breakup with YG, Kehlani maintains that the song is not about her ex. The singer recently delayed the release of her sophomore album due to the coronavirus. “to be transparent i HAD a release date. we’re unable to complete any of our plans or move forward with the album at the moment due to the pandemic,” she told her fans.
