The accompanying video finds Heavenly with nothing but a piano as she reflects on the anguish left behind in the wake of a breakup.
“As a trilingual artist, I love global stories that we can all relate to,” says Heavenly. “I’ve grown really fast on Twitch and “Exit” has always been one of my most popular songs there because everyone can relate to heartbreak and agonizing traffic. I like the juxtaposition of comparing a breakup to traffic as it adds a twist to the song.”
