“Get Out Ya Feelings” by dndSection

dndSection’s new ‘Love Lies Bleeding’ tape offered a day to day detailing of the lifestyle of a young hustler. The Atlanta based rapper has shared the accompanying video for one of the project’s standout track, “Get Out Ya Feelings”, where he takes offensive shots mocking his opposition. ILYAONTHEFLY directs the music video with a simplistic direction that highlights dndSection’s thuggish intentions. The rapper is seen dominating his street, bullying a light-skinned dude in some obvious remake of scenes from Chris Talker’s famous “Friday” movie.

“Hot” by Young Thug, Gunna and Travis Scott

Travis joined the duo of Young Thug and Gunna on their “Hot” collaboration, from the former’s new album. He auto-tuned verse turned up the heat on the already accomplished hit record and they recognize its impact through an accompanying music video for the remix. Performing their verses while seemingly sitting in fire, the music video for “Hot” plays out as a tribute to the three artists’ penchant for making commercially successful songs.

“Ride” by Adenike

Pop songs have a reputation for being lightweight and dense, but Adenike channels it expertly to power her googly-eyed romantic new single, “Ride”. Produced by GB, “Ride” is set to the mid-tempo mix of percussion harmonies, synths, guitar riffs and a groovy xylophone sample that gives the song a dancefloor attribute. The music video Fli5star directs sticks to the romantic script provided by Adenike’s sultry vocals as it captures her performing her confessional lyrics while clips of her falling in love with a basketball player and going on a date with him are also feature in the 3-minute long video.

“Morning” by Teyana Taylor and Kehlani

Teyana Taylor and Kehlani have turned up the steam on their sex-drenched slow jam, “Morning”, with the Spike Tey directed music video. The R&B queens teamed up for the song expected to feature on Teyana Taylor’s sophomore tape when it drops in December. The music video ushered viewers into dark neon-lit rooms with beds with silky red bedsheets that match the artists’ red lipsticks as they seduce viewers by caressing their bodies in their sexy lingerie. Their sultry lyrics are brought to life through the sexual direction and intimate make-out scenes that highlight the charming chemistry the two share.

‘The Photograph’ Trailer

Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield have gained acclaim over the last few years since their involvement in coming of age comedy shows, Insecure and Atlanta respectively.
