SZA & Donald Glover Heat Up The Screen In Their Secret Garden (Video)
Donald Glover is riding a massive wave. Fresh off his SNL appearance and momentous “This Is America” video release this month, the Atlanta co-creator is only mashing the gas pedal even more. Now, he’s maneuvering to the more sensual side of things, joining SZA as a character for her new video, “Garden (Say It Like Dat).”
During the Karena Evans-directed visual, Glover plays the love interest of Top Dawg Entertainment’s first lady as she sings about wanting him, but is afraid he won’t want her because of her past. As expected, the visual apparently plays on The Garden of Eden “Open your heart up,” she sings. “Hoping they’ll never find out that you’re anyone else / ‘Cause I love you just how you are / Hope you never find out who I really am / ‘Cause you’ll never love me / You’ll never love me, you’ll never love me.”
In the vid’, Glover fades in and out of scenes almost as if he’s unattainable, even though they embrace numerous times. There’s also a dream-like scene where she finds Glover and things get steamy.
“Garden (Say It Like Dat)” is the latest look from SZA’s 2017 album Ctrl. Back in March, she dropped the visual for “Broken Clocks,” her fourth single off the LP. Before that, she released the Solange-directed visual for “The Weekend.” She’s also revealed clips for “Love Galore,” “Drew Barrymore,” and “Supermodel,” and was in the video for the Black Panther lead single “All The Stars,” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
