The music video features Mr. Flint singing about the beauty of larger women as several glamorous, good-looking large ladies confidently dance to the catchy song.
“I dedicate this track to all plus sized women to remind them that they are beautiful and sexy inside and out.

This has not stopped or slowed down my love of music,” said Fagbemi.
