In a stunning switch-up from typical music video boilerplate, Separators and Rodelle have released a video that’s starkly different than anything you may have watched in recent years. It’s devoid of any depiction of the artists, only featuring black women shown to be in executive decisions. There’s also the fact that these women are portrayed in a sexual manner – they’re power and beauty are admired in such a way that they’re glamourized as much with clothes as without. And for that, we have to applaud the artists. It’s a unique video that definitely deserves some play.
The song itself backs up the same sentiment that the video preaches. Think of Drake’s “Nice For What” given a distinct Detroit twist, being much more realistic instead of typical marketing jargon by way of Toronto. It’s a nice song that’ll lead to some interesting Instagram captions as it becomes more popular.
Watch the video for “Executive” below.
Fly Boi Rich’s new tune “New Jack City” is immensely powerful
Fly Boi Rich is one of Detroit’s hidden gems. This rapping mafioso’s punchlines hit hard, his beats even harder. His latest release is “New Jack City,” a tough, street anthem that will make even the most weary become fans. Check it out below.
.@drewisfamous and @playknows hit the school track in “Look At That!”
Drew Famous dropped the aesthetically bizarre 800DASH last year, and now he’s releasing the video for “Look At That!,” a crisply shot trip heavy on the nostalgia. It’s almost like one of those weird training videos from the 1990s that makes brilliant use of washed out color palettes and cool camera angles. It features PLAY of Virginia group Breezepark who brings tenacious energy to the chill tune.
Check out the visual below.
@RealRobotJones and @LadiEarth have the time of their lives in “Big Ol Booty”
Robot’s tenacious new track “Big Ol Booty” will undoubtedly be the soundtrack to a lively time once the weather warms up. The Texas-based rapper knows how to have a good time, judging by past hits like “Camera” and “Sleigh,” and brings that same approach to this tune, reveling in his unique energy to breathe fresh air into the instrumental. Ladi Earth, whose music has just been featured on Netflix’s Russian Doll (her song “Water“), appears her and brings some sex appeal to the proceedings.
