In the visual, Shenna drives around with an unseen man as she sings, “If you want me to love you then keep my heart beating/And if you want me to talk, let’s have conversation.” Despite the frustrations she’s singing about, Shenna’s soft, floaty voice gives the track a sense of calm.
The video purposely switches from color to a fuzzy black and white television screen, indicating the true nature of Shenna’s relationship. “The guy’s point of view in this story has static and is blurred out because he’s actually a TV which is the symbol of someone distracted by technology,” Shenna says.
Shenna, whose full name is Shenna Somsmieh, released her debut album Made of Gold in 2016. If the R&B singer’s voice sounds familiar, it might be because her music has been featured on television shows like MTV’s Teen Mom OG and Netflix’s Miss Stevens.
