Depicting the ups and downs of five romantic relationships between the singer and characters portrayed by pop star Justin Bieber, actors Woody McClain and Young Mazino, star producer/songwriter Benny Blanco, and a robot, SZA releases a dark yet comedic video for “Snooze.”
The latest hit from the musician’s December’s SOSalbum that spent 10 weeks as #1, last week “Snooze” entered the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 after securing the top spots on the Hot R&B Songs and R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts.
In the video, SZA (born Solána Imani Rowe) sings the song for Bieber in a quaint bedroom and rides on the top of his tractor before becoming aggressive with him. She teases McClain (“Power II: Book of Ghost,” The Harder They Fall) with a seductive dance in a gym before fighting for his attention while he plays video games. She and Young Mazino (“Beef”) picnic on a farm and drive ATVs before breaking into an argument (Blanco seems to have it easiest — he eats fries and ketchup off her naked back). However, the man she seems to end up with is the robot, for whom she performs an elaborate lap dance. “Snooze” is directed by Bradley J. Calder, who previously directed SZA’s “PSA” and “Nobody Gets Me” clips, as well as several videos for Tinashe and Jean Dawson.
In September, SZA will kick off the second leg of her North American tour in support of SOS.
