Carly Rae Jepsen Videos
A fresh crop of music videos hit screens this week and it seemed as if around every corner there was something new and intriguing to look at and listen to. The beautiful lyric video for David Bowie's "I Can't Give Everything Away" was as elegant display, and one the late icon would, hopefully, be proud of. Big Grams (Phantogram and Big Boi) put out the delightfully odd and edgy video for "Drum Machine" [ft. Skrillex]. ScHoolboy Q returned to the game dropping the trash-filled "Groovy Tony."
It's hard to not just start dancing when you hear Charles Bradley, and "Ain't It a Sin" proves to be no exception, plus he looks fly in that leather jacket. MS MR released their video for "Wrong Victory." Broncho got deep into the wavy, early-90s vibe with "Fantasy Boy." And that was only the beginning for a week stuffed with eye and ear candy.
Here are our favorites:
Phife Dawg - "Nutshell" - Directed by Tony Reames
It's not complicated, it's not over the top, and it may be the perfect tribute to the incredible talent that was Phife Dawg. Beginning with a tribute to the late rapper, the video for "Nutshell" features Phife rapping in sports apparel in an empty warehouse. Turns out, that's all you need… in a "Nutshell."
Carly Rae Jepsen - "Boy Problems" - Directed by Peter Collins
"Boy Problems" may be the fourth single off Emotions, but you better prepare to hear this song for the rest of the year. It doesn't hurt that Jepsen captures the perfect 80s vibe in the music video and looks great doing so. I guess even Carly can have "Boy Problems."
Chance the Rapper - "Angels" [ft. Saba] - Directed by Austin Vesely
Chance The Rapper finally released the video for "Angels" [ft. Saba], and it did not disappoint. In it, Chance is a dancing superhero who enjoys riding atop subway cars. His presence is infectious and it gets everyone out of their seats, turning subway cars and empty streets into dancefloors.
Deakin - "Just Am" - Directed by Lawrence Simonitsch
What a beautiful video and song from sometimes-Animal Collective member Deakin. We've been waiting a long time to hear Josh Dibb's solo recordings, and he does not disappoint. Just watch and listen.
KAYTRANADA - GLOWED UP [feat. Anderson .Paak] - Directed by Bo Mirosseni
A hazy purple world glows as KAYTRANADA goes from asleep to eating a steak sandwich on a dancefloor. Anderson .Paak makes appearances on a retro television, and everyone is transported to a strange, icy place that may very well haunt your dreams.
