Jamila Woods received a lot of spotlight with the release of her debut album HEAVN last year. The album is now purchase for the first time via Jagjaguwar and Closed Sessions. The talented singer, poet and activist has released the official video for the lead single ‘LSD’ featuring Chance The Rapper today.
For the video, they opened up treatment submissions to all CPS high school students, ultimately selecting one student’s treatment to make the concept for the video. Ashley Huicochea was the winning student who worked with directors Vincent Martell & Sam Bailey of VAM Studio on the set during the shoot. Six other students who were runners up worked on other parts of the production.
