To celebrate the release of Nothing Was The Same today, Drake dropped the visuals for “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” What I was expecting to be a fairly basic love fest in the form of a music video, turned out to be quite the cinematic experience.
We all know by now that Hov has a love for art and all that surrounds it. So why not perform inside the MoMA and shoot it as your video? That’s exactly what Mr. Carter did. Incorporating actors, art dealers, writers, street dancers, 9th graders and legends only adds to the allure. From the ever so powerful Marina Abramović, to the comical Judd Apatow, to youthful blackbelt Toby Kinberg, Jay-Z brings extraordinary energy to whomever is in his presence.
“Power Trip” is the first official taste of Cole’s sophomore album, and tonight the visuals surfaced. I’m happy to say, the video was not what I was expecting. Jermaine throws in a heavy storyline with a twist. Born Sinner drops June 25.
If you’re looking for a little background information, give “Dreams” a listen off The Warm Up
King Kendrick drops another video from his notorious good kid, m.A.A.d. city, which was arguably the best album of 2012. The contrast between Paris and his roots (“where my damn Dominos at?!”) makes for a rather artistic vibe.
Captivation at its finest.
This week we have brand new visuals from D-WHY, who if you don’t know by now, you can find out here. This track is produced by Hit-Boy and is off his debut project Don’t Flatter Yourself, which you can download for free on the sidebar. Also, watch Meek Mill and Big Sean set some whips on fire as alligators watch in their collaborative banger. Last week, The Weeknd officially announced The Trilogy, whilst giving us visuals for “Rolling Stone.” Coldplay gets animated on their latest video, based on their Mylo Xyloto comic series.
D-WHY shows great artistic direction with his latest video. Co-directed with Jakob Owens. Watch out for his free tape, Don’t Flatter Yourself, dropping August 15.
