Aluna has unveiled a video for The Recipe.

The collaboration with Kaytranada and Rema that marries Afrobeat elements with dancehall-inspired grooves features on the singer's debut solo album, 'Renaissance', which arrived in August. Discussing the clip, she said:

"I wanted to play with the way history has been dictated to us. Growing up in England you are constantly exposed to glamorous white history of period dramas without a black person in sight. I feel that since the British Empire was so heavily funded by slavery that history is ours too, we’ve just never been pictured in the finery...and I wanted to see what that would look like."

Director duo Reggie. (Clay Dirkse and Jake Herman) added: "This video brings together a lot of elements that you wouldn't necessarily find in one place, but when combined create something magical. We drew inspiration from Aluna's album name, Renaissance, the Elizabethan era, dancehall, Midsummer Night's Dream, Busby Berkely, the Wiz and more. We were very fortunate to collaborate with an incredible cast and crew. Our choreographer Chris Emile, captured the energy of the song and the idea perfectly."
