Jhene Aiko releases the official music video for “Lyin’ King” from her Souled Out album. Jhene plays a brave medicine healer who passes through a dying, famished ancient civilization. The prolific video was co-directed by TOCK and Topshelf Junior, and marks the album’s one year anniversary.

In the video, Aiko encounters a group of women who have been exiled and silenced by the men of their tribe. After healing the women and trying to plead with the over-aggressive and violent tribesmen, Jhene seduces their chief into an “ego death,” as explained in her open letter about the video to The FADER.

Watch “Lyin’ King” below.
