Last night, Solange announced the release of her video, “Almeda.”
The singer shared the announcement on her Instagram page. “almeda video directed by mee out now ! (link in bio) much love to every hand involved in its creation,” she wrote.
The video was directed by Solange and edited by her husband Alan Ferguson, along with John Bogaard.
The beginning of the video starts off with a line of black women wearing black suits while dancing synchronically to Houston rapper Devin the Dude’s voice.
Then Solange takes a spin in a black and white snakeskin outfit before the clip swiftly changes to Solange in bed next to her friend who is playfully rapping while Solange hypes her up.
Afterward, Solange is seen amongst of group of women rocking brown outfits and blonde wigs while dancing slowly. Then the clip changes to a woman who says, “Do nothing without intention.”
“Black faith. Still can’t be washed away. Not even in that Florida water. Not even in that Florida water. In that Florida water,” Solange confidently sings. “So pour my drank. sip. sip. sip. sip. I pour my drank on ’em.”
“Almeda” comes from Solange’s latest album, When I Get Home which was released on Mar. 1.
