New York native rapper Leaf drops her next single / video off her upcoming project “IS IT YOU.” Raised in New York City, Leaf, a self-proclaimed multihyphenate, not only models and raps, but is a true artist. Now 24, she has only built on what she started as a young phenom. Leaf has continued writing and producing her own music, directing and editing her own videos, and even designing her own MBM (Magnetic Bitch Movement) clothing line.
“Is It You” is about getting what you want from men / owning your sexuality. Leaf playfully has dinner with her friends at a Chinese restaurant in NYC while they chat about dating which later turns into a dance party and she even gets some advice from an older woman having dinner at the same restaurant “No check, No number”. Both the song and video are very energetic and makes one want to stand up and start dancing as the hook goes, “Is it you, I just wanna know is it you.”
Later on rapper Dave East makes a cameo as Leaf’s love interest at the end of the night where Leaf meets up with him after her girls’ night. With everyone in quarantine this is a song that can help ease anxiety and help other manifest their dream bae.
