R&B crooner Bryson Tiller has shared the video for his latest single, "Always Forever." The new visuals feature Tiller along with a special love interest, Kehlani.
Directed by Kid. Studio, the clip features the two singers in an imaginary relationship, with the video jumping between different love scenes. These include a kissing scene, which caught some fans by surprise.
To promote the video, Kehlani took to Instagram to post a few pictures from the video shoot, along with a lengthy caption in appreciation of Tiller. In the post, the singer referred to him as one of her dearest friends, listing their matching tattoos, years of friendship, and nights of laughter.
"I'm so proud of you. Thank you for being solid," she wrote.Some fans, however, misunderstood the post and accused the singer of seeking more than a friendship with Tiller. As a result, the singer deleted the post in order to avoid backlash, as reported by Vibe.
Later, she promptly cleared the air on her Instagram stories, explaining that the caption was just meant to be a supportive message for Tiller's new release.
"I post lengthy captions about all my friends. You would have to follow me to know that," she wrote.
For the record, Tiller has been in a relationship with model Kendra Bailey since 2018. The two share a daughter, Kelly Jade, who was born in December 2019. Meanwhile, Kehlani recently broke up with rapper YG.
Shortly after the video dropped on Wednesday, fans on social media shared their thoughts on the clip, as well as Kehlani's now-deleted post. Some fans thought the two looked great together, while others thought her Instagram was a bit too much.
"If I was Bryson's girl, Kehlani would have to catch these hands for that extra a** caption," a fan wrote on Twitter.
"My bisexual heart don't even know to who to be more jealous of that Bryson kissing kehlani or that kehlani kissing Bryson," another person tweeted.
"Still trying to recover from it," a fan wrote on Twitter, referencing the kissing scene.
"That Kehlani post she made for Bryson Tiller has me a little taken back," another fan tweeted.
"Always Forever" is part of Tiller's latest LP, Anniversary. The project, which was released on October 2, also includes tracks such as "I'm Ready For You," "Things Change," "Inhale," and "Outta Time," along with a guest appearance from Drake.
Meanwhile, Kehlani is gearing up to drop the deluxe version of her latest album, It Was Good Until It Wasn't, which was originally released in May.
