With Silk Canvas still in heavy rotation, especially if you spend most of your time in the bedroom, VanJess is back with a new video for one of the album’s standout tracks, the Kaytranada-produced “Another Lover.”

“One of my favourite quotes is, ‘confidence is being more of yourself,’ and that’s really what we think about when making visuals that represent us,” Ivana told Noisey. “Jessica and I are who we seem to be in our music and visuals: we’re laidback, that’s our energy. So when we’re put in a situation where we get to create this art to go with our work, it’s beautiful that we have help manifesting that vision.

“It’s funny, because we always have a mood board of what we want – an idea, a summary of how things will go – but on the day of the shoot, things come up, and it will change. Creating is really a spiritual thing and we go where the energy takes us. In the moment, you could be feeling it, you could be giving all of you, and something unexpected will jump out. It’s beautiful how we’re able to bring ourselves out to the world like that.”

Driven by dance, the Mahaneela-directed clip was also released in celebration of the singing duo’s recent signing to Keep Cool — the same label, cofounded by our friend Tunji Balogun, that houses Normani, Lucky Daye, and others.
