On the surface, “Kiss Me More” doesn’t seem like it has anything to do with video games. In the video, an astronaut (played by Alex Landi) explores a bubble-gum-pink alien world that is equal parts sensual and playful.
But if you watch through to the end, the video takes a turn. You see Doja Cat and SZA lounging on the couch, snacking on food. Turns out, they’re playing a video game. As Doja Cat plays, she struggles to navigate the boat she controls on-screen — using a DualSense controller, in what appears to be some clear PS5 product placement — until SZA gives her a hint. The entire scene is reminiscent of the way Doja Cat acts on her own Twitch streams. The musician has only gone live a couple times, but she’s killed it every time. Nearly every clip of her on Twitch is memorable, even when she’s stuck on a difficult portion of any given game.
Oftentimes, she will meander around, like she does in the video, commenting on everything in the environment until chat tells her what to do. This sounds like it would be boring to watch, but it’s not. This is because her ability to improvise is remarkable. She’ll freestyle songs on the spot that match up with whatever she’s trying to do in-game. It makes even small things, like trying to jump from platform to platform, entertaining to watch.
