Videos usually serve one purpose – to increase the impact of the song for visual viewers. This is done by expressing the stored creativity in artists and directors brains in ways that impress the people watching the video. The trend has usually gone for the extravagant by including scantily clad women or expensive cars that make viewers envious of the artists’ lifestyles, but none of this is necessary. At the end of the day, the artistic vision is what matters. In Courtney Bell’s new video “God Body Pt. 3,” a chair is the main focus of the video. And yet, it makes so much sense.
The song itself is soulful, deep, and well-put together. Courtney’s lyrics are bone-piercing with their veracity and bluntness. With production that encapsulates early 2010s conscious music aesthetics by the likes of J. Cole, the song is a throwback to simpler times when the analysis of thought-provoking music was much more ordinary. Now, this song sticks out like a sore thumb because of its intense lyricism. Overall, we love it.
Take a look at the video for “God Body Pt. 3” below.
Fly Boi Rich’s new tune “New Jack City” is immensely powerful

.@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.
