Today (Mar. 6), Kehlani dropped the visuals for her single, “Butterfly.”

In the video, the Omar Twinz, who are students from the Oakland School for the Arts, where Kehlani is an alumnus, can be seen dancing with a blue hue.

On her Instagram page, Kehlani shared that the twins choreographed their entire piece the night before.

“I went back to my old middle school & found @omartwinz12 , these two little geniuses not only showed up and were incredibly epic/professional to work with, but they choreographed their entire piece the night before,” the R&B singer said.

Kehlani’s set was also designed and built by her former production and set design teacher Mr. Revon and her butterfly wings that she wore in the video were designed by her former costume design teacher, Ms. Linda, of the same school.

“Thank you Oakland School for the Arts for cultivating such a beautiful community, and teaching me so much of what I use today in my career,” Kehlani wrote on Instagram.

Towards the end of the video, Kehlani rocks a pair of green Butterfly wings to accompany her baby bump that’s painted with the rest of her body in blue and gold.

The video was directed by Trey Lyons, who the singer says is the youngest director that she’s ever worked with.
