R&B sensation SZA is taking us to summer camp in her new music video for "Broken Clocks", her latest single off the wildly successful album Ctrl. The video, co-directed by Dave Free and the singer herself, has a grainy quality that perfectly accompanies the message of the song—the past doesn't always stay there. The plot oscillates between past and present-day SZA stumbling through life at summer camp before ending up in a strip club.

And while the song itself is a partly somber, partly irritated retelling of a relationship that took a toll on the singer, the video is particularly carefree and light-hearted. In the end, you see a cast of happy pre-teens and SZA soaring through the air after jumping on a trampoline that's out of view—before reality sets in yet again. Watch the video below.
