Kehlani’s natural swagger and effortless beauty take full effect in the music video for Calvin Harris’ “Faking It.”
The video follows Kehlani, taking on the role of an ice queen, as she melts in a metaphorical pool of regret of missing her former flame after pretending she’s rock solid post-breakup.
“Hey, I’ve been wanting to call ya, tell you that I’m sorry/Same old fucking story everybody sing/And I say I’m okay, but I guess I’m a liar/You say you’re okay, but I saw that you liked it/2 AM and faded, I know that’s when you like it/Know that’s when you miss me, know that’s when you crying,” she sings.
“Faking It” is the current single from Harris’ latest album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 upon its June 30 release. The cool cut, which also features rapper Lil Yachty, is the fifth single from the album, being preceded by singles “Slide,” “Heatstroke,” “Rollin’,” and “Feels,” which all have all star features from Ariana Grande to Frank Ocean.
