Music Video Monday: recent chart catchup

A few more longstanding chart hits with only-recently-released videos to look at today.

Meek Mill and Drake – Going Bad

It’s mainly the standard mansions ‘n’ bling, with a bit of cigar smoking and racehorse betting for good measure, but there are some nice trippy elements such as a random car crash that doesn’t actually seem to affect anyone in the video.

Lauv and Troye Sivan – I’m So Tired

This video mainly involves the two singers hanging around diners and streets and on top of cars being depressed and single. There’s also a lot of happy couples hanging around for contrast.

Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved

And a bonus video for today – an extra video has been released for Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved, following the singing-in-a-train-station one from a few weeks ago. This one doesn’t feature Lewis, but it does feature his second cousin once removed (and Twelfth Doctor) Peter Capaldi, playing a widower whose wife’s death has enabled a young mother to receive a lifesaving heart transplant. It’s as emotional as it sounds. Lovely video.

I expect that next week’s video will be an ’80s one. Videos in the ’80s were the best, even if they didn’t have Doctors in them!*

*I’m not digging out Doctor In Distress. That was an exception to the ‘videos in the ’80s were the best’ rule.
