It’s another “Spike Tee” joint.
Teyana Taylor debuts the self-directed video for “How You Want It?,” her new collaboration with Diddy’s son Christian “King” Combs. The nostalgic song samples Ma$e and Total’s ’90s hit “What You Want,” while the video pays tribute to classic ’90s videos.
It opens with an homage to LL Cool J’s “Doin It” as Teyana stares through a peephole while watching herself in various outfits, and even bites an apple just like Todd Smith did in the 1995 clip. She then strips down to her white bra and panties while twerking on a white carpet in another throwback scene.
From there, she takes it back to the Shiny Suit era. Teyana plays Ma$e while King Combs channels his famous father from the “Mo Money Mo Problems” video, flashing his six-pack abs for the camera. The Harlem duo both don head-to-toe MCM while performing on a Las Vegas rooftop in the final scene.
“How You Want It?” comes on the heels of Teyana’s critically-acclaimed album K.T.S.E., which was released last June. She continues to stack her directorial credits, helming recent videos for ScHoolboy Q’s “Lies,” Monica’s “Commitment,” and Lil Durk’s “Home Body (Remix).”
