With razor-sharp production, Tkay exudes confidence with every spitfire rhyme. Propelled by an infectious energy, ‘Shook’ is paired with a video directed by Jenna Marsh (Beyonce, The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj), against a backdrop of burned-out cars and couture. 'Shook' follows 2019’s award-nominated ‘Awake’ (featuring JPEGMAFIA) and IDC IF U BE DED’.
