The soul infused, “genre-bending” track paired with the dynamic, clean-cut visuals, set the tone of exactly what Bilal has to offer music lovers in the coming year. The video which is directed by one of Bilal’s close friends, Hans Elder, depicts the motions that one goes through when they are desperate to find love.

Bilal has stated that the song represents “That one last desperate attempt to find love again,” and the visuals perfectly compliment that idea.
