"Shea Butter Baby" is a celebration of browns — brown skin, brown floors, brown decor. Lennox moves wistfully like steam, seeking to enchant her busy partner whose eyes have settled on the glare of his MacBook screen instead of her curves. Heads offer a means of scene transportation, with the camera zooming in to dark fade haircuts and kinky curls to enter in and out of a dreamy existence. In this alternate plane, the walls are covered in chocolate and the brown skin of dancing vixens glistens in the dim light.
