Music videos can elevate a song and its message to new heights! THP wants to recommend four new music videos that did just that!
‘D.M.B’ – A$AP Rocky
A$AP Rocky shows his love for Rihanna in the most New York way; by taking her to his hometown! Rihanna shows that she’s a ride-or-die partner in this video, and we love it! The visuals in this video are truly insane! Our favorite scene is near the end of the video, where there’s a video collage of A$AP Rocky and Rihanna spending time together. The ‘D.M.B’ MV is truly a work of art!
‘up at night’ – Kehlani
Kehlani reminds us that they can dance and put on a show in the ‘up at night’ music video! In the beginning, she’s lying in bed trying to sleep, but she can’t. Later on, she sleeps and dreams of herself breaking out into a dance sequence, along with other scenes. We’re obsessed with everything about this video, from the dance sequence that pays homage to Michael Jackson, to the black and white glamour dance scene. Kehlani delivers aesthetics and entertainment, all while reinforcing the song’s message! We’ll be ‘up at night’ watching this music video!
‘Why Do I Stay High’ – Juicy J & Wiz Khalifa (featuring Elle Varner)
Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa keep things chill in the ‘Why Do I Stay High’ music video! There are many flowers and greenery throughout the video, as Juicy J and Wiz are hanging out in a greenhouse! We love the aesthetics in this video, and like the song, the MV gives summer vibes. We’ll keep the song and music video on repeat all summer!
‘WAIT FOR U’ – Future (featuring Drake & Tems)
Future and Drake never miss with their music videos! The ‘WAIT FOR U’ music video tells the tale of the toxic king, aka Future, who goes to war and leaves the queen behind. Drake is a knight who has to sword fight a bandit who tries to kidnap his girl. From the costumes to the sword fighting choreography, the ‘WAIT FOR U’ music video is a 10! The MV was like a movie starring the perfect cast. So get your popcorn and drink ready to watch.!
