SZA released a new visual for her opening track, “Supermodel” from her debut album Ctrl. In this fairy tale style video, directed by Nabil, (DNA, Love Galore, Pyramids, Piss on Your Grave) we open with the TDE songstress talking to her reflection; in a hypothetical conversation with her ex-lover (cue Issa Rae à la Insecure).
She’s then lured away and down the woods by some fairies that sprinkle and blow-kiss fairy dust on her while she struts in a Ctrl panty, her signature big hair, and platform heels. Her ex-lover appears at the end of the road, taunting her, but in true SZA fashion she gets revenge. As a result, we end up at a school playground where SZA and some kids shoot fireworks at him as he tries to avoid being hit.
“Supermodel” appeared on Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s hit show Insecure, and is an Apple Music exclusive.
