ZA has delivered a number of striking videos to accompany some of the brilliant tracks off her debut album, CTRL—the most recent being the kung-fu-filled “Doves In The Wind” with Kendrick Lamar.
After teasing a clip of “Garden” on her Instagram last week, the album highlight finally gets its full-length visual treatment—and the R&B songstress has brought along Childish Gambino himself. No doubt, SZA and Gambino are playing swaps as the rising superstar was featured in the rapper’s recent music video for “This Is America.”
The ethereal, dream-like clip was directed by Karena Evans (who helmed the vids for Drake’s “Nice For What” and “God’s Plan”), and featured the serene beaches and lush greeneries of Maui. It starts with SZA lying on the beach at night, and as the sun rises, she ventures into the forest. It’s here that she meets her man (that’d be Gambino), and the two get close amongst the equally beautiful landscape. Towards the end, SZA encounters a woman that’s played by her own mother.
The video’s atmospheric and eye-catching, making it the perfect companion to “Garden.” Check it out below:
