And despite being in the midst of a pandemic, the Bay Area singer has remained creative in her approach to music videos — look no further than the self-directed and highly sensual “Toxic” visuals. This time around, she’s opted to take a road trip for her latest clip, delivering an emotional rendition of “Open” as her chosen single.
The clip, directed by Hyphy Williams, begins with some picturesque views — not only of her idyllic surrounding environment, but of Kehlani herself. Upon taking a soak in the hot tub, she proceeds to hit the dusty trail for a little bit of self-reflection. Before long, she’s taking a stroll in the wide-open wilderness, surrounded by gargantuan mountains lit by a crystal clear sky.
Insofar as premise goes, it’s a relatively simple one, though rendered effective through strong cinematography and a passionate performance from ‘Lani herself.
