Fresh off the release of his new album Free Spirit, Khalid released the music video for the title track on Monday, 8 April 2019.
The music video showcases the singer taking a road trip with various friends, experiencing different adventures along the way. They use a colourfully-painted minivan, which also appears on the Free Spirit album cover art.
The storyline documents the group of friends living freely and enjoying life, whilst focusing on one friend in particular. The visuals follow her as she joins the free-spirited group. The former prom queen ends up as a stripper, which was a surprising plot twist.
In an April 2019 interview with Billboard Magazine, Khalid shared the meaning behind the song, “To be a free spirit, it has to be something that you don’t turn off. It has to be automatic. You have to feel it all the time. I know that I don’t feel that all the time.”
