Elijah Blake Releases Visual for ‘Hanging Tree’

Elijah Blake has released a visual for his socially conscious song “Hanging Tree.” The video was directed by Sean Alexander.

The powerful song was released in partnership with the nonprofit organization Sankofa.org, a social justice organization founded by Harry Belafonte.

“I wrote ‘Hanging Tree’ as a way to use my voice for equal rights, especially black rights, in the aftermath of tragedies like Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice and so many others whose voices have been silenced,” Blake told The Fader.

Khalid and Normani Make Chemistry in ‘Love Lies’ Video

Khalid and Normani can’t keep their eyes off each other in their fervid visual for “Love Lies,” lifted from the impending Love, Simon soundtrack.

The cinematic video begins with Khalid — who is working as a valet attendant — setting up his on-the-job plans with a text thread with his Fifth Harmony co-star. He sends Normani the ‘location’ of the hotel he works at and she pulls up shortly in a black ride.

The Young Dumb & Broke artist opens her door, and Normani steps out dressed in a flowy black trench-coat. Eager to put on a show, she hardly makes it to her room before she snatches off her coat to reveal her sexy lingerie.

Finally, in the room, Normani draws back the curtains and dances like her life depends on it. Khalid has a bird’s-eye view of her dance number and sends her emojis of appreciation at his valet post.

Love, Simon will hit the big screen on March 16.

K. Michelle Shares ‘Crazy Like You’ Video

Don’t mess with K. Michelle or you’ll come up missing. The versatile artist reveals her plans for revenge to her therapist Annabelle in the video for “Crazy Like You.”

The eerie picture starts with K. Michelle and several look-a-likes strutting around an abandoned warehouse in a revealing black outfit. The camera flashes to more women, one holding a tank of gasoline, who seem to be ready to set fire to the rain. Going back to K, sporting a platinum blonde ponytail, an over-sized dress and plaid boots, she gets comfy on a vintage sofa to share her plot for vengeance to a red-headed doll.

“Crazy Like You” is lifted from K. Michelle’s latest album, Kimberly: The People I Used To Know.
