Continuing his Week of Well$, Charlotte, N.C. rapper Well$ releases the music video for his song, “Black Swan.” Check out the video below, premiered here on The Juice:
The MTSYD single, which focuses on the life of a stripper, features Well$ rapping over Shlohmo’s remix of Jeremih’s “F-ck You All the Time.” (You can find the song on the Jeremih and Shlohmo’s collaboration EP, No More, released this summer.)
“It’s about looking at things in a different way. People tend to look at a situation like a girl stripping and immediately assume it’s her father’s fault. It’s not always what it seems, life’s not always what it seems,” he tells Billboard of “Black Swan.”
The video, directed by Jay Sprogell, was filmed in Foxy Gentlemen’s Club in Brooklyn.
“We had the concept prior to me hearing the beat,” Well$ says. “And then when I heard the beat, I just started freestyling to it and the message started coming out. It’s a cool oxymoron, because the chorus says ‘f-ck you all the time’ and I’m trying to convey a message that’s not conducive to that part.”
