Music Video Roundup: Meek Mill x Young Thug, Khalid, Lion Babe, DAWN, David Guetta x Afrojack x French Montana x Charli XCX x Afrojack, Rob $tone
From loss and heartache to neon-tinged bank robberies and galas.
Meek Mill, “We Ball” feat. Young Thug
Meek Mill, who currently is behind bars following a verdict that has stunned the nation, begins his latest visual with an important message: “Even though the way we mourn a loss may be different in certain cultures, it’s something we all must learn to accept if we want to heal. But to live in those hearts we leave behind, is not to die.”
For the Spike Jordan-directed visual accompanying the collaborative track “We Ball,” Meek and Young Thug pay tribute to those who are no longer here with us.
Khalid, who has earned no less than five Grammy nominations this year, returns with a new visual off his widely praised debut album, American Teen. During the music video for “Saved,” Khalid longs to reunite with his ex, a somber feeling we all can relate to.
Lion Babe, “Rockets” feat. Moe Moks
Neo-soul duo Lion Babe take us to an interstellar gathering for their latest out-of-this-world visual, full of trippy editing, vibrant neon lighting and, of course, epic couture looks to boot.
For her latest, Dawn Richard, also known as DAWN, gives her track “Stopwatch” the visual treatment, which stars a couple of her flawless and creative alter-egos. The music video for the song, which was produced by Machinedrum and written by Jesse Boykins, takes fans on a journey accented by details such as psychedelic palm trees, colorful skies, a samurai sword and an astronaut’s helmet, matching the track’s playful, bouncy vibe.
David Guetta & Afrojack, “Dirty Sexy Money” featuring Charli XCX and French Montana
For this collaboration of epic proportions, Charli XCX and French Montana are up to no good, counting money after robbing a bank while their accomplices sport creepy baby masks. The visual for the David Guetta and Afrojack-produced song is tinged in neon, making for a nice cinematic touch to the clip, which Charli XCX directed alongside Sarah McColgan.
Rob $tone, “Money Now,” “Sender,” “Lately I’ve Been Feeling Myself,” “The Whole Thang”
