simple in nature, the new video for portugal. the man’s new single, “atomic man” involves a bunch of warped and melting faces, and that’s pretty much it. aside from the great track, get up close and personal with the members and watch weird shit. their new album, evil friends, is out june 4th.
i’ll be honest – outside of a few singles, i haven’t even listened to trouble man. any cee-lo collab is usually good by me, though. “hello” has a pretty nice music video to go alongside the track too, with t.i. finding himself in the desert for a fairly cinematic narrative.
i kind of dropped the ball on this one and let it hoard space in my inbox for about 7 days too long, but better late than never, right? local rap machine kyle hubbard saw a lot of critical praise and acclaim for his last project, you’re not that special. (by the way, you can still download it for free!) and now, we have a new music video for its latest single in the djay cas-produced “even though it shines.”
the-dream has put in a lot of promotional work. a few videos, a handful of singles and plenty of news bits along the way. we’re only about 10 days out from the release of his oft-delayed and anticipated fourth studio album, so we’re getting a music video for the title track. and onto the ladies of the evening in the video, they’re bad. and that’s bad meaning good.
first off, i love that this is a single – and that needs to be said. anyway, king kendrick heads to a funeral dressed in all white to contradict the very song you’re listening to’s main thematic element, but it matters not. omar epps and juicy j both show up in a video that had a nice budget, some beats by dre product placement and plenty of hijinks that turn that frown upside down.
solange’s true EP is one of this year’s quiet gems in the pop music realm – regardless of it being on the more indie side of things. now she has another video to add to her arsenal in the vibrant and colorful “locked in closets,” which you can see below the jump.
the cool folks of foxygen have built themselves a nice buzz off of their album, we are the 21st century ambassadors of peace magic, and for good reason. carve out some good times and get to sightseein’ in the band’s new video (full of patchworked footage of the band) for “no destruction.”
the very contemporary soundtrack for the great gatsby is probably getting better reviews than the film itself, but my jury’s still out on that one, and so now we have the soundtrack’s first music video from lana’s contribution.
pusha t’s lead-off single from my name is my name is a great one, especially when you have kanye west behind the scenes on the production. in the new music video, push does what he does best: look into the camera while mean-muggin and raps his ass off. he even has a couple of high profile cameos from chief keef and yeezy himself.
jack freeman is really carving himself a great lane in the world of soul and r&b. sure, it starts in houston, but with his new video and a short tour planned, he’s planning on hitting a few markets to expand that growing fanbase. donned in a tux is freeman in this new clip, which is a bit dark in its narrative.
