Music Video Roundup: Maroon 5 x Future, Jidenna, and Njomza
Acid trips and parking lot parties.
Maroon 5, “Cold” feat. Future
After recruiting Wiz Khalifa for “Payphone” and Kendrick Lamar for “Don’t Wanna Know,” it’s clear Maroon 5 has a knack for unlikely pairings and in the video for “Cold,” Future turns into a teddy bear, just one of Adam Levine’s many wonderfully-trippy hallucinations upon being drugged at a party.
Jidenna, “The Let Out”
Days from releasing his debut album The Chief, the video for “The Let Out” finds Jidenna trying to escape a family dinner in search of a parking lot party.
Over Njomza’s (pronounced nee-ohm-za) two-year hiatus, she was briefly heard as a guest on The Divine Feminine from Mac Miller (who discovered and signed the Albanian-American singer), but now she’s returned as a solo star with visuals for “Intro,” in which she and a lover experience intimately natural moments at home.
