Keep scrolling for the rest of our picks for best videos.

Ella Mai, Roddy Ricch – “How” 

In the alternate world that makes up Ella Mai’s “How” video featuring Roddy Ricch, Ella is a housewife who’s waiting for her husband to notice her. Dianne Garcia Yohannes lends her excellent costume design skills for the clip that has a bit of a vintage vibe throughout. The standout from Ella’s latest album receives a sinister-themed visual directed by Colin Tilley that exemplifies the chorus that’s hard-hitting.

Bktherula, Destroy Lonely – “Forever Pt. 2 (Jezebel)” 

Bktherula‘s catchy bop “Forever Pt. 2 (Jezebel)” featuring Destroy Lonely receives a visual. In between her lines, Bktherula faces off in a water gun fight. If you listen close enough you’ll realize the rapper is touching on her thoughts on romantic partnerships. Aside from this, the video has an air of playfulness.

Larry June – “In My Pockets” 

Larry June returns and reveals a clip for his single “In My Pockets.” He’s in Europe flexing and we’re not mad at it. Shot on location in Paris, Larry fires off some rhymes about designer goods, women, and of course traveling overseas.

Bankroll Freddie, Lil Baby – “Patience” 

In tandem with his newst mixtape From Trap To Rap 2, Bankroll Freddie shares a video for his new track “Patience” with Lil Baby. It’s an enjoyable listen. The Quality Control rapper’s rise is highlighted in the clip. He raps in between b-roll featuring him interviewing, touring, and recording in the studio.

Quavo, Takeoff, Gucci Mane – “Us Vs. Them” 

Quavo and Takeoff unleashed their latest “Us Vs. Them” featuring Gucci Mane directed by Keemotion at the tail end of last week. Quavo steals the spotlight when he drops off his verse. The video is performance-oriented rather than thematic, it’s a bit chaotic, but it gets the job done.
