Morris made a point of expressing that, although she wanted to fill the role, she enjoyed the process of making the video. 

‘Honestly, even if I don’t get the part, this was so fun and I bought a freakin’ backdrop off Amazon,’ she said.

The actress kept it simple while taping the video, as she wore a low-cut black sleeveless top.

The Grammy-winning performer also tied her lovely brunette hair back, and several locks fell onto her forehead.

Morris spoke about working on Humble Quest during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, where she noted that she had a specific intention for the record.

She noted that she wanted ‘to make these songs feel hopeful because they were pulling me out of a hopeless place and they made me feel hopeful again,’ she said.

The hitmaker then remarked that she carefully wrote her songs in an effort to offer a bit of solace to her listeners.

‘I felt like if they were helping me, maybe if 10 more people heard it, it would help them too. That’s how the whole record came to be,’ she said.
