Music Video Roundup: Sevyn Streeter, DUCKWRTH, Lizzo, and Gorgon City
Retro, acoustic, and catchy hip-hop feels.
Sevyn Streeter, “My Love For You”
A dance-heavy clip, Sevyn is giving us all the old-school feels with her Mary J. Blige “Real Love”-era knee pads and the sunrays-lit warehouse setting a la Janet Jackson’s “Pleasure Principle.”
DUCKWRTH, “Rare Panther + Beach House”
A glimpse into love’s most simplistic but personal moments, DUCKWRTH and his lady let us in as they shoot slingshots in the forest; cook, massage, smoke, blow bubbles, and lay in bed together at home; and play telephone on a coastline. But is this a memory or in real-time?
Yeah right, you’re gonna wish you felt nearly as confident or sassy after losing your phone during a long night as Lizzo and her backup dancers/entourage do.
Gorgon City, “Smile (Acoustic)” feat. Elderbrook
Set in a studio in London, Gorgon City’s Kye and Matt take drums and keys duty while Elderbrook offers up his trademark soul, making this acoustic version more intimate than the original.
