Reneé Rapp joined forces with Cara Delevingne for her brand new music video off her debut album, with Delevingne stepping behind the camera this time.

The two teased “Pretty Girls” on Thursday, whipping fans up into a frenzy ahead of today’s release.

The full video follows Rapp’s encounter with a, well, pretty girl at a night club, while she sings about the frustrations of women who want same-sex hookups but immediately go back to their boyfriends.

“You think that I’d be flattered / It’s pathetic ‘cause you’re right,” she sings. “Yeah, it’s a blessing and it’s a curse / So keep on pretending pretty girl.”

“All the songs I write obviously are about things that I've been through personally, but I think that any relationship I've ever had in my life is all culminated into one on this project and in these songs,” Rapp told People of the music on her debut album, Snow Angel. “I'm very protective of myself, and all of these situations were taken from relationships that I had, whether they be good or bad.”

Snow Angel was also released on Friday. Early reviews have been positive, with AP praising it as “a worthy debut for an artist with already-proven versatility” and Rolling Stone specifically calling out the “endlessly quotable” lyrics and Rapp’s “searing soprano.”

Combined with how into the new music video fans already are, it seems like Rapp’s off to a good start with this era of her career. And if Delevingne is looking to make a pivot to directing, she’s made a solid step with this bittersweet glance into sapphic struggles.
