Complex premiered the video. Speaking about the video, Pooh told Complex:

We wrote “Black Magic (Make It Better)” to inspire…No matter your personal struggle or where you are starting from in life, waking up gives you another shot at being better than you were the day before. We wanted a visual that felt organic and represented us and showed love to the city that birthed Little Brother, Durham NC.

Phonte also said that “Black Magic (Make it Better)” was the first video Little Brother ever shot in Durham, which is pretty crazy.
