When Shenna was writing "Magenta," she found fuel in Bruno Mars' 24K Magic and its "old-school-yet-fresh" sound. "Magenta" is the latest in a line of color-centric songs (previous titles include "Made Of Gold" and "Dream In Color") by Shenna, and today, she is premiering the video for the song here on V.

"I have been obsessed with the character Poison Ivy since I saw Batman as a kid," the model-musician said about the video. "I remember her seducing her victims -- blowing a magic smoke into their ear which made them fall for her. I had a similar idea, minus the villain plot. I wanted 'Magenta' to be that dust like magic that makes others gravitate towards that individual because they are so confident and steal the room when they walk in it. I then thought it would be cool to have some of my favorite dancers and actors involved in this video to make the story come to life in a retro quirky bar called Space Billiards Inc."

In the video, Shenna is seen with two friends — in varying shades of magenta — giggling as they scuffle through an empty bar. They joyfully get ready for the night ahead together in a nearby bathroom, which is a poignant scene because it emotes what Shenna wants people to feel when they listen to the song. "I hope that this song puts people in a mood where they want to play this song in a loop as they are getting ready to go out with their friends for the weekend," she explained, "looking in the mirror as they put on their favorite outfit feeling hot, confident, and magenta!"

Once they're ready, they walk confidently into a now-bustling bar where a love interest awaits. Watch what happens next in the "Magenta" video below.
