Temi DollFace returns with the music video for her newest single “Beep Beep,” premiering here with Okayafrica today.

The video, which was directed by James Slater, can be added to Temi’s growing repertoire. It follows the visuals for "School Your Face," a tribute to her grandmother for Women's History Month.

“I stand for something different, outside of the box,” Temi DollFace has mentioned in an interview with Okayafrica about her influences, musical interests and identity.

“Beep Beep” delivers just that.
