Kali Uchis' video for "Only Girl," featuring Vince Staples and The Internet's Steve Lacy and produced by Kaytranada, premieres today. Watch the video, directed by Uchis and co-directed by Valentine Street, here:
"I was inspired by fake love, Edie Sedgwick, Nancy Sinatra and Calle 13," says Uchis. "The video speaks on how disposable/replaceable 'lovers' are treated and the things we will say/do out of loneliness."
Uchis is currently in the studio finishing her debut album, following a whirlwind 2015 that found her touring North America with Leon Bridges, releasing her critically-acclaimed project Por Vida, starring in the Nick Knight-directed acoustic video for her song "Loner," directing videos for "Ridin Round," "Loner" and "Rush," starring in a campaign for British designer Sophia Webster and much more.
Twenty-two-year-old Uchis was born in Pereira, Colombia, raised in Alexandria, VA and is now based in Los Angeles, CA. Uchis has released two much-lauded projects, 2013's Drunken Babble and Por Vida, featuring production from Diplo, Tyler, The Creator, Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD and more. Further collaborations include work with Major Lazer, Snoop Dogg, Tory Lanez, Tyler, The Creator and more.
