Sevyn Streeter Takes It Back To “4th Street”: Watch The Singer’s Video
The track, which is not billed as the second single, is a piano-laden mid-tempo that samples Tears for Fears’ 1985 tune “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” The accompanying video finds Sevyn showing us her hometown in Florida as well as her various relatives who helped make her into the person she is now. She shared with fans on Twitter the meaning behind it:
“I wrote ‘4th Street’ on a day I found out someone I loved broke my heart into a million pieces. While I was in the recording booth, I cried like a baby…However, instead of channeling that hurt & anger into a song like ‘B.A.N.S.’. I decided to focus on all the good people in my life.”

Press play Can’t wait for yall to see my #4thStreet video tomorrow! Out of all the songs on my album it’s the one closest to my heart! Everyone has at least one person in their life that doesn’t want anything from you, they just wanna make sure you good! They’re the ones who make all the assholes we encounter irrelevant! #4thStreet is the street I was raised on, the people in the video are the ones who grew up there with me & the ones I name at the end of the song are the angels who had a hand in molding my life! #4thStreet people are just “good ass people! Tag one if you got one #4thStreet
