Kehlani has also collaborated with other artists this 2020 on their tracks: Justin Bieber's 'Get Me' from his new album 'Changes' and Megan Thee Stallion's 'Hit My Phone' from her third EP 'Suga'.
The 24-year-old singer wrote "I drank some wine and locked myself in my room” on Twitter before sharing the grainy "quarantine-style" video. "Stay awake with me real quick," she said. Later she revealed that she created, directed and edited the video in her room within only an hour. "Thank u red wine (sic)", she added.
In the sultry clip, Kehlani wears several outfits and smokes while twerking and engaging with the camera seductively with different colored filters over slow-pulsating lights. The steamy video has explicit lyrics to match. Kehlani sings, "Uh, all the sex on replay. Run it back like a DJ. Surfin' on your face while you eat that. Tryna make a bad b***h behave, no. I was this way for you. Put the p***y away for you. Thinkin' I would wait for you".
Fans are in sexual hyperdrive on Twitter seeing the new video. Short clips from the fans' favorite sexiest moments were put up and amid a multitude of gifs that couldn't express reactions better, fans called it "perfection" and "a masterpiece" while some fans called her "queen".
