American Horror Story Asylum 2.0 If One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest was remade into a dance party, this is what it would look like. British duo, AlunaGeorge's new music video for "Best Be Believing," takes us to the mental asylum, which in this case happens to be a dance rehab clinic. The singer of the group, Aluna Francis has been condemned to the hospital for turning up too much, but it does more harm than good as her presence awakens the other patients. The other half of AlunaGeorge, George Reid, plays a doctor. In one particular scene, a bunch of girls dance around what looks like a UV light. Some kind of rehab therapy or just trying to get a tan? We'll let you decide. Watch AlunaGeorge's music video for "Best Be Believing" below. Seen via: Noisey
Taste it It's hard to take your eyes off the intense and sexual chemistry in FKA Twigs new music video "Papi Pacify." We thought it would be impossible to make a video that compliments and captures her song as well as her image, but after seeing this, we know, Twigs could never let us down. The video is a somewhat disturbing and mostly beautiful accompaniment to a dark yet alluring song. Filmed and directed by Tom Beard, and the singer herself, "Papi Pacify" is all done in black and white, allowing light to fall, sometimes gracefully and sometimes dramatically, on Twigs and her partner. The shots of her covered in glitter unveils just how beautiful and unique Twigs really is. Hit play and just try and look away. Watch FKA Twigs “Papi Pacify” below.
H Town! Though Solange would probably prefer not to be compared to her big sister Beyonce all the time, it's hard not to notice the stark differences in their images. Solange's new video "Lovers In The Parking Lot" continues in the trajectory she's been traveling. It's cool clothes, an interesting choice of sets and unique videography--all awesome and anything but glossy Bey. Filmed exclusively in Houston, the singer's hometown, the video for "Lovers in The Parking Lot" goes from dark shots in different commercial areas including a cafeteria, arcade and pawn shop. Solange is the only person to appear in her video, but keeps your attention focused on her with every new outfit change. (There are quite a few.) Watch Solange "Lovers In The Parking Lot" below.
Drops of New Drizzy Drake is set to put out his album, Nothing Was The Same on September 24th, and is dropping little bread crumbs along the way to the full release. This nugget comes in the form of a track called "Wu-Tang Forever." The song doesn't have much to do with the rap crew from Staten Island, though does sample Wu-Tang's “It’s Yourz” and instead has more to do with, you guessed it, love. Listen to Drake's "Wu-Tang Forever" below.
"I know somebody loves my ass." Chance The Rapper wants you to know there's someone out there that loves you.
