Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, music has been a foundational piece of HENNESSY‘s life. Citing inspiration from Drake and Lauryn Hill, the singer-songwriter has built a formidable catalog this past year. Less than two weeks after sharing her “Double Back” video, it’s rapidly approaching 75,000 YouTube views as the song just crossed 150,000 streams on Spotify, an impressive milestone for just her second official song.
Shot by CBNOne and directed and written by Larry Adigun, the “Double Back” video gives viewers one last glimpse into summer as the brisk autumn season begins to settle in. Safely enjoying a day out with her friends, HENNESSY finds herself at a summertime kickback. Drinks are poured and toasts are taken while the DJ keeps the function alive, but it’s a fellow partygoer that catches her eye across the yard.
The video progresses with the songstress and an unnamed gentleman lustfully locking eye. Reluctant to make the first move, she enjoys the party and what it has to offer for the time being. The video momentarily transitions to Dee Gomes who is elsewhere with a woman by his side as he rattles off his verse. Returning to the function, her and her friends call it a day and opt to depart from the party. Waiting a bit too long to make his move, the unnamed gentleman sprints out of the party with the hope of meeting his potential love interest, but to no avail.
Her prior reluctance is explained as HENNESSY and Dee Gomes reconnect at the end of the video as her “<3 On My Sleeve” interlude plays in the background. Check out “Double Back” below.
