"All Hands On Deck" Music Video Behind-The-Scenes
The video is shot in the Long Beach Naval Shipyard. Tinashe, whose biggest dance influence is Janet Jackson, shows off seductive and intricate dance moves as she explores the yard. The rebellious artist took the risk of dancing in storage containers far off of the ground, adding to the video's visual appeal. Here's how she described the process in a statement to Billboard:
I feel like when you put yourself in a borderline dangerous situation, exciting things can happen... That shock value is always what you want to go for in a memorable video. We were over 100 feet in the air with no safety harnesses. Literally, we could have died. It was a thrill to make and I'm so excited for my fans to see this video. We really stepped it up, visually.
In addition to the adventurous scenery, she also shows off her rocking body in skimpy, cleavage exposing outfits. The singer's provocative vibe relates to the lyrics as she looks to rebound after a break-up.
