The clip was shot in late 2019 around twigs's performance at AfroPunk in Atlanta, where twigs performed a moon dance with a spiritual healer named Queen Afua. "This essential piece is about resurrecting the womxn," Afua says, "because if you elevate the womxn, you elevate the family, and then we can all transform and birth a new world."

The pair take their message of empowerment through movement from the AfroPunk grounds to Blue Flame, a Black Atlanta strip club, where twigs takes the stage. In an interview with WeTransfer, twigs said: "My experience at the Blue Flame solidified that, although historically women are often pitched against each other for their looks or their assets by the patriarchy, when left to our own devices we are incredibly nurturing and healing for each other.”
