Mitski wakes up one day and her house is alive. First, her bed splits in two and half zips away from her, sheets and all. Then, the wall grows a petulant arm, one that only calms down when she walks up to it and decides to hold its hand. A package arrives and turns out to be a portrait of her, just missing the face,…
On Wednesday, Ariana Grande released the Dave Meyers-directed video for her new single “The Light Is Coming,” featuring Nicki Minaj. The song itself is a bite-sized burst of pop and a slight departure from what we’re used to from Grande. The video is a dark, strange trip through the woods.
When Rita Ora and her myriad collaborators released “Girls” in May, there was pushback and much debate over whether the song was a queer power anthem or a piece of exploitative trash. The lyrics, largely written by men, were criticized for stereotyping lesbian romance as nothing more than casual, drunk fun among…
To promote Season 2 of Queer Eye, Netflix released a music video featuring the Fab 5 and Betty Who. I, like Diana Morales in A Chorus Line before me, feel nothing!
The latest single from indie band Hurray for the Riff Raff, fronted by Bronx-born boricua musician Alynda Lee Segarra, is titled “Pa’lante,” which translates to “forward.” It’s a concept that speaks not only to Puerto Ricans but colonized people of all backgrounds—the perseverance inherent in those identities, the…
Cardi B plays both blushing bride and vengeful widow in her new music video for “Be Careful,” the most vulnerable song from her debut album Invasion of Privacy.
There’s one word that’s consistently associated with Meghan Trainor again and again, and it’s “sassy.”
Harry Styles’s video for “Kiwi” opens with a note: “No children or animals were harmed during the making of this film.” But the video gives no consideration to the dozens of sweets that were desecrated.
How many Haim videos will you need to watch to convince yourself that the sisters Haim are very, very good at walking but maybe not that awesome at dancing?
Oh, look what you made Taylor Swift do: you made her beat streaming records.
Remember in the late ’90s and early 2000s when every music video seemed like it took place in one room that looked like some space-age, underground bunker?
Demi Lovato had a novel new idea for the music video accompanying her new song “Sorry Not Sorry”: throw a wild and crazy house party! Damn, she’s innovative.
Those shots we saw in April of Harry Styles floating in the gorgeous, gloomy atmosphere were stills from his video for the dark yet realist ballad “Sign of the Times,” shot in the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
Here’s how you can tell that summer is coming: the birds are chirping, the weather’s getting warmer, it says so on the calendar, and three chillaxed sisters with good hair are releasing new music.
In James Blake’s new video for “My Willing Heart,” the song is nearly secondary; it’s emotional, immediate and watery like most of Blake’s more recent tunes, but here it provides a textural background for the visuals: Natalie Portman reveling in her pregnancy, an almost primordial being.
Surely many of us can relate to Dreezy’s plight in “Wasted”—ain’t-shit dude only calls for sex whilst drinking, and then late at night, and yet still we hold out hope he’ll change his ways. The song, though, is mournful but not disempowered; a statement rather than a plea, and an acknowledgement that the dude is the…
Rihanna—who confessed to being deeply in love with Star Trek since childhood so we have to believe it—released what’s being promoted as the world’s first-ever IMAX music video, “Sledgehammer,” a song from the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.
Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes sometimes seems suspended in an alternate dimension where it’s perpetually the summer of 1986, whether it’s his thrifted cool dad wardrobe or his aspirations toward the production of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
Rihanna dances in a lit cube in the middle of a club (wearing a somehow-cool sequin/sheer baggy jumpsuit) in the video for her EDM song with Calvin Harris “This Is What You Came For,” a song about that magnetic woman who only has eyes for “you (ou ou ou ou).”
