In the 2010 film Black Swan, a ballerina played by Natalie Portman struggles with inner demons as she prepares to play the lead role in a production of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, all the while being terrorized by a man in a bird suit. Well$‘s latest feature, the first official single off his debut mixtape, deals with the psychological baggage often carried by another kind of dancer.
