Lyrics Used
[Verse 1]
7:45 on the boulevard
Cruising top down 
‘til the sunset
I know we both feel it
We gone live it, hit the J
Blow the ashes in the wind
Highway, we out of sight
Let’s ride tonight
Where do we go
I don't know where you've been
[Verse 2]
I stop then you go

Color Palette
Overall Visual Colors
I played into the colors that Bosco used for her performance, and also enhanced the saturation of the overall footage
Cel Colors
I used bright, neon colors for the cel animation because it coincided with the aesthetic that I was portraying as well as complimented the blue-purple color palette of the footage.
