Last week, we were officially introduced to Top Dawg Ent.’s newest signee, Lance Skiiiwalker. Though we’d heard him a couple times on Jay Rock’s 90059 album, “Speed” was the first solo music from the Chicago native.
Keeping the interest keen, we get the second new song in as many weeks in the form of the dusty and relaxing “Could It Be.”
In the ensuing video, Skiiiwalker plays a pesky “devil,” offering the girl some fruit to gain her acquaintance and spend some time with her. (Think Eve eating a bad apple, or Alice taking her trip to Wonderland with a rabbit.) But he later has his “Oh, shit!” moment of “maybe drugging a woman so she’d spend time with me isn’t a good idea or right,” the devil leaves and the girl wakes up. The whole plot in the video makes me a bit uncomfortable, with its sexually aggressive undertones, but the song, it seems, is a step up from our first introduction to the singer/producer.
Watch the visual above.
