Release[edit]

On April 15, 2010 Uffie's latest single, "ADD SUV" featuring Pharrell Williams premiered on BBC Radio 1. Uffie describes "ADD SUV" as "poking fun at the rap fraternity's obsession with possessions, particularly their cars...",[4] but was more seriously influenced by the 1966 classic novel "Valley of the Dolls", which Uffie was reading at the time she wrote the song. Uffie's lyrical content in the track also deals with darker subjects such as materialism, illegal and prescription drug abuse, and mental disorders, including schizophrenia, manic depression, attention deficit disorder and even the confinement of psychiatric hospitals.[5]

A music video began to shoot for "ADD SUV" in Los Angeles starring both Uffie and Pharrell Williams and directed by Nathalie Canguilhem on April 9, 2010 and was released on June 14, 2010.
