Ray Kay was recruited to direct the song’s accompanying music video which was filmed in late September, and is pending release.
In an interview with Rap-Up, Kay said “I’m certain people that are watching the video will feel inspired to develop their own individuality and freedom and express their own art after seeing Willow in this video.” Kay also confirmed that the shooting would take two days, and require a lot from Smith, but said, “she’s incredibly talented and has an amazing personality, so I’m confident she’ll kill it in front of the camera. She’s a star.”
