Shamir's New Video Has Muppets In It — What More Do You Need?

Watch 'Call It Off' below.

Two roads diverge in a desert in Shamir's new "Call It Off" video, and he -- to paraphrase Crissle from "The Read" -- says no to f--kboys.

The Philip Hodges-directed clip, which premiered Monday (Mar. 23) as part of the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, finds 20-year-old Shamir Bailey at a physical and emotional crossroads. What does he do? The BBC Sound of 2015 nominee hits up a department store, transforms into a Muppet, and ends things with some dude who doesn't appreciate him enough.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that "Call It Off" has Muppets in it -- like actual, for real Jim Henson Studios Muppets. What more do you need?

Shamir's debut album, Ratchet, drops May 19.
