Brooklyn quintet Phony Ppl takes us into a bodega love affair in their new video “Before You Get A Boyfriend.” For those of you who don’t know what bodega is, it’s a mini super market that you can commonly find in New York City. They usually sell bombass breakfast sandwiches. Anyways, back to the track: “Before You Get A Boyfriend” is a playful funk-infused R&B groove that has irresistible buoyancy to it. Watch below:

The single is Phony Ppl’s first new music since their 2015 deubt record Yesterday’s Tomorrow, which earned critical acclaim from major press and other artists such as Childish Gambino. Since their record, the quintet have performed alongside Erykah Badu and The Roots, opened for Kali Uchis, and pursued separate projects with other artists including Snake Hips, Princess Nokia, Mac Miller, and more. The quintet is currently working on their new album, which they’ll reveal more details soon.
