After the peaceful and cleansing "Washed Away," "Happy Ending" marks a return to the dancefloor for Kelela. The track is produced by LSDXOXO and features additional production from Bambii. The video, see below, is directed by Alima Lee and Kelela with the pair capturing a snapshot of Black rave culture in New York.
Kelela's 2017 debut studio album Take Me Apart was followed a year later by remix project Take Me a_Part, the Remixes. Her absence from the music world was used in promotion for "Washed Away," with a video of fans asking "Do you know where Kelela's been?" circulated online.
