    Game of Thrones is the inspiration behind Diamonté Harper’s—aka Saweetie—new visual, “Pissed.”

    Directed by Christian Sutton, the clip opens with picturesque shots of an old castle perched on top of a snowy mountain as haunting, hymn-like chords drone in the background. But as soon as the bass-heavy Cronkite-produced beat kicks in, we’re transported to within the building’s stone walls where Saweetie sits on a golden throne, looking as majestic as ever in a black corset gown.

    Unleashing her inner Daenerys Targaryen, the up-and-coming rap star tears into razor sharp verses that hit back at her critics. “I go by in the Benzy and I be throwing up digits / I work hard for my riches, how dare you say I didn’t / I said that I be winning / Oh, you thought that I was kidding?” Saweetie spits.

    According to a new interview with Billboard, Harper declared herself as a huge fan of George RR Martin’s medieval fantasy epic. “I love Game of Thrones,” she said. “[In the video] I dressed up as Khaleesi to symbolize what I’m trying to do. I’m trying to take over. When I first came out with my blonde hair, people were calling me the black Khaleesi, and I kind of just ran with that.”
