[WATCH]: Kendrick Lamar Drops Rihanna-Assisted Video for “LOYALTY.”

Kendrick Lamar drops another visual from his double-platinum album, DAMN. From “HUMBLE.” to “DNA.” and “ELEMENT.” to “LOYALTY.” is there a common theme within Kendrick’s most recent videos? Watch “LOYALTY.” and see for yourself.

 

Fresh off the heels of bringing out J.Cole and Chance the Rapper to his Detroit and Chicago shows, Kendrick Lamar continues to keep us tuned into his every move.

A post shared by Kendrick Lamar (@kendricklamar) on

Although currently on tour promoting his most recent release DAMN, Kendrick continued to satisfy his fans by releasing the visual for the Rihanna-assisted track “LOYALTY.” As I mentioned in an older post covering his video for “ELEMENT.”, most Kendrick Lamar visuals have to be watched at least twice to understand the themes behind the music.

So imagine this: Ninjas (or at least I think what I think may be ninjas). Scantily-clad women representing temptation. Metal sharks under concrete road pavement. If you’re lost, I don’t blame you. Let’s break it down a bit further. Using the comments section for some sense of understanding (which is something I should do less of..unfortunately!), my interpretation is that each of these elements represents Kendrick trying to stay not only loyal to his woman (played by Rihanna), but to himself. Kendrick recognizes the more fame he achieves within the music industry, the more likely his moral values are inclined to disappear. The lyrics even speak for themselves. Watch the video below and let me know what yall think!

[WATCH]: “ELEMENT.” by Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar drops off another powerful visual from his fourth studio album, Damn. What do y’all think of the video?

Kendrick Lamar encapsulates art with every video. I’m not saying that as a fan of his work. I’m saying it because I believe it to be true.

The Damn rapper just released a video for “ELEMENT.” (*sings hook as I write this*) directed by Jonas Lindstroem and co-directed by The Little Homies. I literally just found via Google search that the group Little Homies consists of Kendrick and Top Dawg Entertainment president Dave Free!

With almost every Kendrick video, you have to pay attention and don’t blink..because you might miss something; however, I blame myself for gassing Kendrick and tricking myself into believing the visual was so abstract I missed something upon the first viewing of the video. 

Not gon lie though, I had to watch it again cuz you know! This particular visual may catch some of you off guard due to the slow-motion pace of the video. In the video, the balance between violence and inner-peace is contrasted as father teaches son how to fight, and Kendrick shhhhmacks the shit out a poor guy’s mouth, meanwhile he chases someone with a pool cue.

That’s pretty much how I interpret the visual. If yall have any other opinions, feel free to show some love to my comment section! Check the visual for “ELEMENT.” below.

Chance has made songs with Justin and Wayne in the past, but the trio have never made music together.

SZA Drops New Single “Love Galore” Along With Its Video; Announces News Deal With RCA Records

SZA Drops New Single “Love Galore” Along With Its Video; Announces News Deal With RCA Records

The beautiful, extremely talented SZA has been teasing her debut album CTRL for what seems like forever!

Yesterday however, the First lady of TDE blessed us with not only a new single–but a new video also! Her last single was “Drew Barrymore” which she performed it for the first time on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The song called “Love Galore” features a verse from La Flame himself (aka Travis Scott). The song is basically about an ex who wants her back in his life, yet he manages to somehow treat her like a side-chick (P.S. SZA is MAJOR wifey material, far from a side-chick).

In the video, SZA rocks a sexy-ass piece of lingerie (that had damn near had me drooling from how good she looked in it) while teasing Travis before she attempts to put her moves on him. What seems like a sultry bedroom session ends up more like the movie Misery, and that’s all I’m going to say without ruining the video for y’all. Watch the video below.

Furthermore, on Thursday (April 27th), it was announced that SZA signed a partnership deal with RCA Records. Don’t worry..she’s still signed to TDE too! Let’s all congratulate her and hope for an early summer release of CTRL.

Stream/purchase “Love Galore” everywhere.
