A few weeks ago, Leela James made it clear she was over her ex situation with her soulful new single "Don't Want You Back." Now she's showing us just how fed up she is in the accompanying video. The visuals, set in South Central LA, paint a picture that matches the tone of the single perfectly. The video starts with Leela pulling up to her house in a Buick, blasting her 2014 single "Set Me Free." She later plays cards with her colorful crew of girlfriends, ignoring her exes calls when he later decides to show up drunk. Taking him in, Leela and her girls give him the nastiest side-eyes we ever did see, as he acts a fool.
The video, directed by Chris Scholar, takes a trill left when Leela and her crew decide to pack up ex-bae in the car and cart him off to the middle of nowhere. The ladies leave him tied up, but with a cigarette and they ride out into the night without a care in the world. And then we're back to the beginning of the video, which shows a happy and free Leela.
"Don't Want You Back" serves as the first single off of Leela's forthcoming album, slated for release in early 2017. If you like what you see and hear, add the breakup track to your collections and purchase it from Amazon, iTunes or Google Play.
