Tiara Thomas continues to smooth it out with another cinematic, reflective video for her acoustic track “How It Is.”

Produced by Qreamybeats and directed by Shane Adams, the visual is a colorful look at Tiara's deep, dark universe. She sings in a dimly lit room shaded in red and yellow hues while in another, she paces back and forth as worlds collide. On the latest single from her Up In Smoke EP, she sings about being a loner and outcast in search of someone to understand her. She also showcases her poetic rap flow on the effort.

She recently spoke to MTV about how the dreamy, soft-spoken song came about. "'How It Is’ was a conversation with myself in my head,” said Thomas. “Talking about things that people go through in everyday life. Just dealing with people. Dealing with how things are.”

In addition to flexing her vocal chops, Thomas is also flexing her skills in the kitchen in the All Def Digital web series Baking With Tiara. With blunt in hand, the singer gets medicated while attempting to make homemade pizza, ramen and other tasty dishes.

The unapologetic reality TV-style cooking show is just another avenue to explore the many sides of Tiara Thomas. Will you be taking cooking tips from Tiara?

In other Tiara news, she will be hitting the stage at SXSW 2015 in Austin, Texas this month.
