What at first seems like a fun "guess that aspect ratio" video (I guessed: 9x16) turns out to be a way cooler riff on perspective, as we get a surveillance cam motif mixed with a forward rotating visual plain. Dope, indeed, even if you're more of a QVC person. #HGTV
Tinie Tempah and director Craig Moore have teamed up again, heading over to the Caribbean to shoot this fun, scenic video for Mamacita, featuring the up-and-coming Wizkid.
Shot in the Dominican Republic, Tinie tries on a bit of Latin flavour as he rides through the barrios in a Mustang - serenading all the beautiful women while collecting bags of cash from them. But by the end of the video, it appears the glitz and glamour of drug cartel life might have been too good to be true.
Mali Music has shared a sweet new video for "Contradiction," one of his contributions to the ChiRaq The Movie soundtrack.
Directed by Davis Silis, the warm video shines a spotlight on the Georgia singer and his collaborator Jhene Aiko. The pair sway gently with a glowing dance club's pretty crowd while singing about the ups and downs of love. As well as creating a reminder of everyone lost in violence not just in Chicago, but all over the world.
David Silis, director: "The insurmountable loss Chicago has experienced over the years for many people only came into perspective when compared to America’s losses in Iraq, a war more publicised, and certainly longer-running than any other.
I grew up not far from Chicago, so when this project came around, working with the supremely talented Mali Music, Jhené Aiko, and the team behind Spike Lee’s film ‘Chi-Raq’, the soundtrack on which ‘Contradiction’ features, it felt quite personal. Especially when only a few weeks after we finished filming, my own hometown suffered a mass shooting.
What we wanted to create was a video that reinforced the story of ‘Chi-Raq,’ but also had its own message. Both a celebration of community, and a lament of its destruction. Or in other words, a contradiction. That while life does go on, we shall never forget those who were lost."
LMFAO may be done, but Red Foo is keeping that same vibe alive in his solo work, but with a saxier twist. (And yes, I mean saxy, not sexy). Longtime LMFAO director Mickey Finnegan is on-board here, delivering a dance extravaganze that looks like it takes place in the "Party Rock Anthem" street corner, but on a day when it's not besieged by the shufflin' masses.
