Jade de LaFleur’s visual for “Shotgun” brings an 80s-inspired tone to her sensual lyrics, in which she tells a lover she plans to mix “business and pleasure” when all is said and done.
The Louisiana native, who is gearing up to released her sophomore EP in early fall, can be seen in the video serving several fashion looks from hot pants to a maxi dress while dancing her way through various colorful scenes, seamlessly matching the kaleidoscopic aesthetic of the Patrick Wimberly-produced track.
“I haven’t shared a visual ‘Since Smoking In My Car’ in 2014, and I’m still smokin’ in my car lol, so shotgun is strictly for my stoners,” de LaFleur says. “I wanted the visual and aural effects of the video to parallel the song, and stay true to its authentic infectious mashup of culture and raw euphoric expectations.”
De LaFluer has been hard at work promoting her sound and style, and her efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. She’s had the chance to work with Ro James, James Fauntleroy and Solange Knowles, the latter of whom had the Jaded musician’s vocals featured on her Saint Heron compilation album.
