Best Videos To Drop Last Week: Nas, Babyface, Ari Lennox, Larry June & More
Last week video releases from Nas, Babyface, Ari Lennox, 6LACK, Larry June and more were on our radar.
Nas releases a new video for “30” off of King’s Disease III.
Ari Lennox and Babyface release a video for their R&B collaboration “Liquor.”
6LACK reveals the first single for his upcoming album, “Since I Have a Lover.”
Last week, Larry June and The Alchemist dropped a video for “89 Earthquake.” And Joey Bada$$ shares a new video for “Show Me.”
Nas – “30”
The Queens rapper is surrounded by motifs of his wealth in his new video for “30.” The black-and-white shooting style is excellent, and so are the faces injected into the video. A wolf represents strength, the owl represents wisdom garnered over the years, and Nas stands atop what appears to be a mountaintop, which might be a God-like reference.
Larry June, The Alchemist – “89 Earthquake”
Larry June, known for performance videos with sleek shots and close-ups is back at it. Since the track is produced by The Alchemist, he appears at the top of the clip. The deep rose undertones are a clever juxtaposition that switches things up a bit for June.
BIA – “Sixteen”
Accompanying her latest single “Sixteen,” BIA drops off a video. Most of it includes her global travels which include stops in Abu Dhabi plus Vegas, an appearance at Rolling Loud, and other music festival stops. The track which is produced by AzizTheShake and Tim Nihan features her confidently rapping about her fast-paced life.
Joey Bada$$ – “Show Me”
Joey Bada$$ is in his acting bag for “Show Me” his newest single. In the video, he’s dating actress and singer Serayah. Directed by Levi Turner and McCray Sutherlin, the central components of the visual are the couple’s beautiful and not-so-good moments together. This song was a highlight from Joey Bada$$’ album 2000.
Babyface, Ari Lennox – “Liquor”
Dreamville’s Ari Lennox and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds teamed up for “Liquor” off of the legendary singer, songwriter and producer’s album Girls Night Out. Since Lennox deserved to be in a different era, she shines in this vintage-themed video.
6LACK – “Since I Have a Lover”
As he preps to release his next album, 6LACK drops off a video for his latest song “Since I Have a Lover.” The track has elements of pop that feel a bit different than what the LVRN singer has become known for. The video which he released last week is uniquely poetic, it features different sets of friends and lovers enjoying one another.
