Sevyn Streeter Serves Up Confidence & Sexiness In "Prolly" Video

Sevyn Streeter teams up with Gucci Mane on new visuals for "Prolly." 

Sevyn Streeter is "flirting with disaster," and it's definitely working for her. Fresh off the release of her latest single, "Prolly" featuring Gucci Mane, the singer-songwriter dropped the sexy visuals for the single.

In the video, Sevyn experiments with cockiness and maturity. And the static lighting and junkyard scenery adds to this sort of out-of-body experience. Gucci Mane, fresh out the feds, also makes an appearance in the visual with his trap flow complimenting the outlaw theme.

"Prolly" is coming from the singer's long-awaited album, GIRL INTERRUPTED, which boasts features from Ty Dolla $ign, The Dream, among many others. Sevyn talked with VIBE briefly about her new video and forthcoming album.

Check out Sevyn's video for "Prolly" and her Q&A below.

VIBE: Can you talk about the creative direction for the "Prolly" video? 

Sevyn Streeter: When I wrote ["Prolly"], I felt very empowered and unapologetically me.  I wanted the video to be strong and to have a 'here I am' type of feel. [Creative director, Mike Hol] is so great. We worked together a few times before, but he nailed the treatment on the head and brought that feeling to life. We shot it at a paint ball range, and I remember walking out there and being blown away at the location that he found.

How was it working with Gucci? 

Man, working with Gucci is amazing. I didn't have the pleasure of being in the studio with him when he cut it. But not too long after he got out, we sent him the record. And I'm so appreciative because a lot of the times when you want a certain artist to get on your song, you never know if they're going to want to do it. But the fact that he had just got out of jail and he agreed to do it, and he didn't just throw anything on there, he really killed that verse. I was so happy with it. Plus I'm from Florida, so we love Gucci from where I'm from.

This single is coming off your album, GIRL INTERRUPTED. Is this sense of empowerment and self-confidence a central theme throughout the album? 

Yeah, it plays a major part of it. It's a huge part in standing strongly in who you are. "Prolly" is a reflection of that. But for me, it represents growth. It represents confidence, and being good with who I am and where I am. I owe that all to the fact that life and time will teach you a couple lessons, whether you want to learn them or not. And with that, I say life, it really knocked the rose-colored glasses off of my face. In a lot of ways, I was viewing things and approaching things in a girlish manner - being a little naive, a little green, whether it came to relationships, friendships, or business relationships. And with time, [I was] forced to view life in a more realistic way, which I think is a really awesome thing. I wouldn't have written it any other way.

Ty Dolla $ign Releases New Album Feat. Nicki Minaj, Roddy Ricch, Kanye West And More

After a three-year album hiatus, Ty Dolla $ign released his latest studio effort, Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday (Oct. 23).

The 25-track album features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, Roddy Ricch, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, 6lack, Young Thug, Music Soulchild, Skrillex, Quavo, Anderson Paak, Post Malone, Kanye West, and more.

Powered by previously released singles, “Ego Death,” Expensive” and By Yourself,” the new album flexes a different music muscle for the Grammy-nominated recording artists who steered clear of  making club records.

“I was intentionally trying to not make club songs [talking about] hoes and *itches and all the sh*t I used to talk about,” Ty told Vulture in a recent interview. “I was trying to, like, talk about my life, and what it is now, and really do something different with it. I got a daughter going to high school this year, and she’s paying attention, and all her friends are paying attention, so I can’t talk as crazy or do the crazy sh*t that I used to do.”

Kehlani Plays Bryson Tiller’s Love Interest In “Always Forever” Video

Kehlani stars as Tiller’s love interest in the intimate new music video for “Always Forever,” released on Thursday (Oct. 22).

The stunning visual, directed by Glenn Michael of Toronto’s Kid Studio, is a creative take on how a relationship can become your entire universe. Tyler and Kehlani cuddle up, kiss, and hold hand in the steamy visual, prompting some fans to question the chemistry between the two. They might look pretty cozy, but Kehlani and Tiller are just friends (Tiller welcomed a child with girlfriend Kendra Bailey last year).

Kehlani shared some close-up stills from the music video on Instagram along with a message thanking Tiller for being a “solid” friend. “To one of my dearest friends…matching tattoos, years worth of stories, nights of dying laughter and holding each other down in the roughest times…I’m so proud of you. Thank you for being solid.”

The post was deleted after fans in the comments continued to speculate if the two were an item. Kehlani shared a follow-up message on her Instagram Story explaining in part, “I post lengthy captions about all my friends. You would have to follow me to know that.”

Jeezy Seemingly Challenges T.I. To A Verzuz Battle

An ATLien edition of Verzuz could be on the way. Jeezy appeared to challenge T.I. to a friendly battle after the Grand Hustle frontman “respectfully” shot down an offer from Busta Rhymes.

Without directly naming Tip, Jeezy posted a cryptic video message on Instagram on Wednesday (Oct. 21) subtly calling out his potential rival. “I don’t know what you’re avoiding me for. I’ll tell you what though, since it means that much to you put a date on it,” said Jeezy.

Tip jokingly replied in the comments, “Could this long time constituent of mine be referring to me???”

The Verzuz battle isn’t confirmed just yet but fans are already excited at the thought of two of ATL’s finest going toe-to-toe. In the meantime, Swizzy and Timbaland are still prepping the lineup for Verzuz season two, and revealed that Busta threw his hat in the ring. “He’s ready for any type of Verzuz action coming his way,” Swizzy told Jimmy Fallon.

Busta also confirmed to Fat Joe that’s he's down to go up against T.I.

But it doesn't look like the Verzuz showdown will be happening as Tip responded back citing a “generational gap” between him and Busta.

“I didn’t know we were reaching back through generations. That’s a huge generational gap there isnt it? I have a huge amount of respect for you,” noted Tip. “An exponential amount of respect.”

Watch his full response to Busta below.
