Music Video Roundup: Meek Mill, Janelle Monae, King Combs, Diplo x Lil Xan, Ne-Yo, Cyanca
Odes to the female anatomy, the West Coast, and more.
Meek Mill, “1942 Flows”
Filled with footage of Philadelphia’s #FreeMeekMill rally held earlier this year, fans can be seen holding signs asking for the rapper’s freedom and justice, and even for his case judge to recuse herself. Rick Ross makes a cameo, too.
Janelle Monae, “Pynk”
Though an ode to all things pink—like, paradise, blushing, and your brain (according to the lyrics)—Monae’s latest visual is really a demonstration of pussy power. Expect clever innuendos via imagery and a cameo from Tessa Thompson again.
King Combs, “Eyez on C”
Palm trees, hydrolic lowriders, and a sample from a Tupac classic bring the West Coast vibes to King Combs’ latest.
Diplo, “Color Blind” ft. Lil Xan
The young newcomer hits a house party, gas station, and convenience store before meeting up with Diplo in a worn down car stalled in an empty field. The duo is eventually surrounded by masked figures who seemingly try their best to put an end to both Xan and Dip.
Ne-Yo, “Push Back” ft. Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don”
Colorful and dance-centric, women grind up on Ne-Yo before he joins in on the choreography, too. Guests Bebe and Stefflon don’t shy away from showing off their moves, either.
Cyanca, “New Phone, Who Dis”
Accentuating the song perfectly, Cyanca’s new clip is colorful and detailed with a hint of boldness that makes it all pop just enough.
