Music Video Monday: recent chart catchup

A couple more recently released videos for current chart hits.

Khalid – Talk

I really like the colourful sets and costumes in this one, even if there is a bit of ‘standing around by a car’.

Roddy Ricch, Chip and Yxng Bane – How It Is

Fairly typical urban-set video with lots of smoking and designer labels. I do like that there’s a scene in a launderette, which is a classic music video setting!

Back to the ’80s next Monday.

New Hits Friday: 8th March 2019

Four new hits in the chart today.

Sigrid – Don’t Feel Like Crying

It’s a nice tune, and the synthy backing track is good, but the lyrics are a bit cheesy.

There’s no official video for this one yet.

Swarmz and Tion Wayne – Bally

It’s an okay tune, but I find it a bit generic.

The video is mostly monochrome with lots of people in balaclavas. Early on there appears to be a kidnapping of some sort, but this subplot doesn’t really go anywhere.

The Plug, Roddy Ricch, Chip and Yxng Bane – How It Is

I like the atmospheric backing track. Could do with a bit more melody though.

Again, there’s no video for this one.

Jonas Brothers – Sucker

Hmm. Not a group I’d expected to get back together so soon (what happened to Joe Jonas singing with DNCE? I really liked their stuff). I quite like this track, though – it’s sort of standard tuneful pop.

The video is set in a mansion with tons of fancy costumes and excess, which seems to be a video trend at the moment.

More new hits next Friday.
