R&B singer Shanuka shares the visual effort for “Not Your Girl,” her second release of this year. The song, which pulls inspiration from her experience of being hurt, is about turning heartbreak into self-love and growth. Blunt lyrics paired with alluring vocals will have her listeners feeling caught up in the moment.
The song’s accompanying video, as the singer shares, is inspired by Brent Faiyaz’s “F*ck The World” music video and follows her on a nostalgic tour of her favorite locations in her hometown of Scarborough. The retro, grainy shots exude feelings of nostalgia leaving viewers entranced by complementing Shanuka’s effortlessly cool energy. “So excited to give you all this song and video! This is about choosing yourself and ending a toxic relationship because you know your worth and are finally setting boundaries,” the singer shares in a statement.
“Not Your Girl” serves as a follow-up to the Toronto native’s “Hurricane,” released at the top of the year. With much anticipation around her next move, the rising R&B starlet is certainly a musician to keep your eyes on this year.
