What a special week for music videos, some of the biggest names around dropped stunning visuals for some already spectacular songs. Everyone couldn't wait to see what the visuals for "Starboy" would look like, and The Weeknd smashed all expectations with his Daft Punk collaboration. Gucci Mane hit the delivery room in the animated piece for his track "All My Children". Kaytranada found and blew away his new fiance on "You're the One".
Meanwhile, the video for "Skipping Stones" [ft. Jhené Aiko] from upcoming R&B star Gallant finds him bloodied and tied up in the back of a trunk. Chromatics continued to tease us with new material but no album release date the the video for "Magazine" made from clips from the Johnny Jewels-created soundtrack for Belgian movie Home. Weyes Blood debuted her mustachioed video for "Do You Need My Love". And that was only the beginning for a week filled with stunning new eye candy.
Here are our favorites:
Metallica - "Moth into Flame" - Directed by Tom Kirk
The second video, "Moth into Flame", from Metallica's upcoming album Hardwired...To Self-Destruct features the metal gods electrifying underneath Edison bulbs.
The Weeknd - "Starboy" [ft. Daft Punk] - Directed by Grant Singer
The video for "Starboy" simply blew us away, and we dug deeper into the new Weeknd featuring Daft Punk video here.
Flume - "Say It" [ft. Tove Lo] - Directed by NEZ
The video for Flume's "Say It" featuring Tove Lo sees the Swedish songstress in zero gravity. It's just the kind of unbearable lightness that this deep beating pop track deserves.
New Order - "People on the High Line" - Directed by Grace Lambert & Jackson Ducasse
The video for New Order's "People on the High Line" is full of dope, old school breakdancing, and that's really all one needs.
PWR BTTM- "I Wanna Boi" - Directed by Liv Bruce & Anneliese Cooper
Liv Bruce explained to Nylon about the video, which features Bruce in romantic situations with a blowup doll, "Those fantasies reveal themselves to be just as awkward and precarious as reality when they come true."
