April 13, 2016

“Music now doesn’t really cater to the feelings of a real relationship,” Jhené Aiko recently told Flaunt. “It’s all about trapping and bragging.” She teamed up with Big Sean to correct the perceived imbalance, and the pair recently released eight songs together as TWENTY88.

Today the duo unveiled the “Out Of Love” short film. According to the same interview, the visual pulls from a number of sources: Coffy, Roger Moore’s stint as James Bond, and last year’s Ex-Machina. The two artists appear to work in the adult film industry—early in the clip, they are honored at an XXX awards show.

“It’s a ’70s aesthetic, but we’re in the future,” Aiko said to Flaunt. Big Sean put it differently: “Robots are sexy as shit.” Lawrence Lamont wrote and directed; watch above.
