    In April, 070 Shake—aka Danielle Balbuena—dropped two new songs, “Morrow” and “Nice to Have.” Now, the latter track has gotten an outstanding video treatment.

    The creative visual is set in a tunnel of honking cars snarled in a traffic jam. The camera travels slowly from vehicle to vehicle, showing the viewer the varied mass of humanity in this same space: There’s Shake rap-singing to herself, a man enjoying an entire meal of fast food alone, two lovers making out on top of a car, newlyweds arguing and more. You also eventually see the reason why the traffic is backed up, and it all makes for a surreal and morbidly beautiful video.

    “Morrow” and “Nice to Have” will both appear on Modus Vivendi, Shake’s forthcoming debut record on GOOD Music / Def Jam. No official release date has been announced.
