With romanticism and glossy, lo-fi grooves riding high on Jessy Lanza's latest album, Oh No, it's only fitting that the visuals for the title track take her dreamy R&B adventures on a rainbow-wheeled joyride. While the Hamilton-born singer and producer may have ditched the flowing gold cape she wore in the "It Means I Love You" music video, she still manages to serve a fierce look, with a reflective jacket and some of the best hair choreography ever performed on a bicycle.

Directed by Winston Holmes, who's previously collaborated with Dean Blunt, Grimes, and others, the clip follows Lanza as she soars through the streets after dark while crooning about a loopy love affair. Midway through, her bike ride gets injected with another kaleidoscopic trip, inviting the MacBook spinning wheel of death into her dizzy, one-woman dance party.

Catch Lanza on her upcoming European tour and revisit our 2016 conversation with the Canadian artist.
