After releasing her much-anticipated debut album Over It, Summer Walker does a donut in victory lane with her latest video for "Playing Games" featuring Bryson Tiller

In this video, director Christine Yuan plays with Walker's strong feminine aura. Yuan does this by accenting the authoritative tone of the single by having Walker in full command of the men featured in the video. The visual starts off with Walker singing the opening lines of the track. The camera then pans to the ceiling where the viewer sees a man suspended with rope looking at an un-bothered Walker. 

Walker's dominance continues  by flipping traditional gestures on their heads. First, Walker ignores the sentimental imagery of a man bringing her flowers. Next, she turns the idea of cooking and gender roles into something dangerous. While she's cutting a zucchini, Walker decides to throw the knife which narrowly misses a man that's plastered to the wall. The focus continues to be on Walker as she plays a racing game on a Playstation while Bryson Tiller, who doesn't actually appears in the video, croons the outro.
