Latto has dropped off her new song and video for “Big Energy.”
The video capitalizes on the theme of chance, as we see the visual’s leading man try his hand at the lottery, Latto dancing and singing against a casino backdrop, and the leading man get struck by what seems to be Cupid’s arrow.
Latto performed “Big Energy at the 2021 MTV VMAs, as well as her song “Muwop,” featuring Gucci Mane.
Latto officially changed her name from Mulatto in May, with her explanation of the name change a nod to the motifs found in the “Big Energy” video.
“Short for the lottery. Completely separate from Mulatto, represents a new chapter, good fortune, spiritually & financially. Often referred to as Big Latto, the alter ego,” she explained on Instagram.
She continued in a separate post, “You gotta be strategic with the word choice, ’cause it could come off a way that you don’t mean. That’s how I got in this predicament in the first place, with the damn name. … You gotta think ahead,” she said.
