Thu, 23 Mar 2017 13:34:27
Everyone is finally back from South by Southwest, which means a fresh crop of music videos was dropped. Some of the biggest names on the music map revealed new visuals for tracks.
Mastodon debuted the video for "Show Yourself", the second single off their forthcoming record Emperor of Sand. Jason Derulo teamed up with Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj — who has been quite busy of late — for the saccharine "Swalla".
Atlanta's finest, meanwhile, unleashed another devastatingly awesome set of visuals, this time for "What The Price", just adding further proof to the fact that this is Migos' time and we all just happen to be living in it.
James Blake took a complete different direction when he teamed up with a very pregnant Natalie Portman for "My Willing Heart". And that was only the beginning of a week jampacked with fresh new eye candy.
Here are our favorites:
Mastodon — "Show Yourself"
Even the Grim Reaper is entitled to a bad day every once in awhile, and that's exactly what happens in Mastodon's video for "Show Yourself". Death personified sets out on a mission to make sure "rock is dead" by killing Mastodon. Is he successful? You'll just have to watch to find out.
Jason Derulo — "Swalla" [ft. Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign]
If you like candy and scantily clad women, then the video for Jason Derulo's "Swalla" is for you. A variety of sweets and and flashy dance moves are on display as the threesome keep you locked into the screen for the entirety of this colorful video.
Migos — "What The Price"
Broken down cars, burning trash cans, motorcycles, a sweet KEYTAR; Migos just knows what's up. There's nothing too flashy about the video for "What The Price", but the Atlanta trio look bada** as a biker gang. This video is SOUP!
James Blake — "My Willing Heart"
"My Willing Heart" was filmed just two days before Natalie Portman gave birth. It's a beautiful and soothing video the features the actress floating in water and lying on a bed. Just like Blake and Porter, it's pure class.
Perfume Genius — "Slip Away"
Perfume Genius announced his forthcoming album, No Shape, this week and with it came the video for new track "Slip Away". Mike Hadreas and dancer Teresa "Toogie" Barcelo frolic through an impressionist wonderland while being followed by creepy school boys dressed in a way that is supposed to resemble Donald Trump. It's a great intro to what promises to be one of the most intriguing releases of the year.
