Best Videos To Drop Last Week: Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Muni Long & More

Kendrick Lamar drops a three-and-a-half-minute-long video for “N95” days after releasing his new album.

Kendrick Lamar released the sharp video for “N95” on Saturday. Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers dropped last Friday. Lamar has his foot firmly planted on the industry’s neck.

Kanye West debuted a video for “Life Of The Party” last week. Burna Boy captures our attention with his new single “Last Last.”

Muni Long drops another earnestly written banger “Pain” and shares an accompanying video.

Take a look at the rest of our selects below.

Kendrick Lamar – “N95”

Kendrick Lamar shares the otherworldly video for “N95” directed by him and Dave Free. The composition of every single shot in this clip is sensational. Everything slaps you directly in the chest whether it be Kendrick doing pushups, the rapper in a beautiful shot walking a massive staircase next to an insane waterfall or even just him sitting playing the piano. He appears as a human savior during a brilliant moment as he seemingly floats above the ocean. The clip isn’t shallow, it’s visually arresting.

Kanye West – “Life Of The Party”

Kanye never ceases to be provocative. For his latest video for his single “Life Of The Party” he animates vintage images of himself.

Burna Boy – “Last Last”

Who would have thought Burna Boy would sample Toni Braxton for his new single produced by Chopstix? Not us. “Last Last” features a bit of Braxton’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough,” and the clip below is directed by the Nigerian talent.

Adekunle Gold, Ty Dolla $ign – “One Woman”

Adekunle Gold and Ty Dolla $ign previously connected for “One Woman.” Now, the breezy track receives a stunning video.

Muni Long – “Pain”

If you thought Muni Long was letting up, you thought wrong. She recently revealed the visual for “Pain,” another lovestruck song that follows her Billboard chart-topping hit “Hrs and Hrs.”

Dylan Sinclair – “Open”

Toronto’s very own Dylan Sinclair dropped his debut album No Longer in the Suburbs. “Open” is the single he’s chosen to push at the moment (it’s an exquisite one). Sinclair is one to watch right now, don’t sleep.
