Directed by Eno, the romantic visual captures two lovers enjoying each other’s company. In between scenes, Malia is seen performing the song with a small band.
“The song is about having a companion you feel understands you and the women in the video are riding that wave together,” Malia tells Rated R&B. “It’s two people getting lost in moments with each other, soundtracked by myself and the band.”
The video is also featured on TIDAL’s Rising R&B video playlist. It joins visuals from other artists including Nicole Bus, Baby Rose, Cautious Clay and Aneglica Vila, to name a few.
