Duckwrth is currently touring the country with Anderson Paak, but he still had time to put on a one man show on a back street for his “GET UUGLY” video. The lead single for his yet-to-be-named EP, the track is raw sexuality over a jaunty soundscape.
Over a beat that feels like a fuzzy fusion of 80’s pop and peak Neptunes production, Duckwrth courts the source of his affection with wanton passion. “The only color I wanna see is pink,” he says with his half-rhyming, half-harmonizing delivery. His intentions are overtly, but thankfully he never descends into the crude territory with his lyrics.
Also tastefully executed is the Mancy Grant-directed video which showcases Duckwrth performing in the middle of the street. He two-steps. He sways. He’s fully committed, as if he was in a venue with frolicking women singing along with him.
The song splits scenes of Duckwrth—and later ChannelTr3s—dancing with quick shots of Vanessa Vigil, presumably waiting in bed for him to do that nasty, freaky, gushy stuff.
The video doesn’t showcase the full song, which features Georgia Anne Muldrow. You can stream that below.
