Yesterday on Friday, July, 30, R&B star Kiana Ledé dropped a steamy music video for her latest single “Ur Best Friend,” a collaboration with singer and songwriter Kehlani, who also directed the video together with Gabriel Phoenix as part of Honey shot Productions.
The music video stars Ledé, Kehlani and rapper Vic Mensa in a love triangle and is set in a party scene where Kehlani raises a toast for her best friend, portrayed by Mesna whose birthday is being celebrated before the DJ spins the electrifying R&B track.
The story that unfolds is one of a secret romance after Ledé’s character, coupled with Mesna, falls for his best friend, played by Kehlani.
“Thank you so so much to everyone that helped put this MOVIE together,” the “Mad at me” singer wrote on Instagram. “Thank you for your dedication, energy, love and time it took to make this happen.”
Her co-star, Kehlani also took to Instagram to add: “Really wanna thank everyone who worked so very hard on this. It was a beautiful day and I’m so proud of my team and Kiana/her team. She was awesome to direct and co-star with.”
“Ur Best Friend” is Ledé’s lead single for her upcoming sophomore album, following her solid debut project, KIKI, last February which featured collaborations with Ari Lennox, Ant Clemons, Jacquees, Lucky Daye, 6LACK, Moneybagg Yo, BIA, Arin Ray, Gary Clark Jr and Col3trane.
This project is also Kehlani’s fourth feature this year alone after her second full-length studio album, It Was Good Until It Wasn’t.
Ledé has also appeared on collaborations with G-Eazy, They., Niko Malters, D-Nice, and Femme It Forward.
