Princess Nokia has released her ’90s-inspired video for new single, “It’s Not My Fault.”
The clip pays homage to Jennifer Lopez’s video for her 1999 hit, “If You Had My Love,” in which actor Adam Rodriguez watches J Lo using surveillance cameras. In addition, the song also includes lyrical references to Lopez, as well as Gwen Stefani and the site OnlyFans. “My poster is in the slammer / Got that JLo glow and glamor / When they see me they all clamor / They in love and they enamored,” Nokia spits.
“My video symbolizes my mainstream coming of age, just as it did Jennifer’s,” Nokia said in a statement. “It symbolizes the average millennial woman, taking control of herself as the subject. I control my narrative and I celebrate my beauty. It’s hyper-futurism and almost 22 years later we are moving into a more interactive era.”
Last year, Nokia released her dual albums, Everything is Beautiful and Everything Sucks. “It’s Not My Fault” marks the artist’s first single of the year and follows “Get Paid,” her 2020 collaboration with Aluna and Jada Kingdom.
