Everyone appreciates a good romance, especially when it involves young love. In Princess Nokia’s video for “Dragons,” she shares her own love story, complete with arcade games, anime, and even a steamy shower.
Princess Nokia’s “Dragons” was inspired by the love between Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryan and Khal Drogo.

Starring Princess Nokia aka Wavy Spice and her real life love, Wiki Morales of Ratking, the video shows the couple as they spend time together on a date and at home. Her smooth voice and insightful lyrics convey the emotional connection between her and her love, while the music has a pace and rhythm that matches the excitement of a young romance.
