The "Need U" video, starring Dallas rapper FXXXXY (pronounced "foxy") and GEN F rapper Gunna, probably marks the first time in world history that someone has driven a Ferrari to use a phone booth. It makes sense, though: FXXXXY is stuck in his feeling about an ex, and nature is calling. But then, his ex also has someone else on the brain. The clip's relationships are in disarray, fuelling the song's yearning croon-rap.

"I was inspired by Spike Lee and Hype Williams when I came up with the video concept," FXXXXY wrote over email. "I wanted it to be a drunk moving type piece but still colorful and it came how I wanted it to thanks to my great and amazing director Roxana Baldovin."
