SZA Shares Video for ‘The Weekend’

SZA just wants to keep you satisfied through the weekend with her new music video!

The highly anticipated video, which was directed by fellow R&B singer Solange, follows SZA swaying and dancing provocatively in various parts of a multi-floor building. Although it may not sound so exciting, the video is definitely one for aesthetics with its wide-angled viewpoints and repetitive dance motions similar to Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky” video.

“The Weekend” is SZA’s second single from her critically acclaimed and now Grammy-nominated record Ctrl, which was released this past June. The sensual single now sits at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 5 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop National Airplay chart.

In other news, while “The Weekend” is holding strong on urban radio, creeping up the charts is SZA’s third radio single “Broken Clocks.” The Ctrl cut is sitting just 5 spots below the official urban radio chart, garnering over 400 spins in the latest tracking week.

Blvck Rose Releases Visual for ‘Video Girl’ Featuring FùNSHO

Emerging producer Blvck Rose has released the visual for his debut single “Video Girl” featuring FùNSHO.

Directed by Bria Domonique, the kaleidoscopic-clip takes a glimpse into the lives of various women with different interests including yoga, painting, photography and 420. The ladies later join Blvck Rose and FùNSHO at a kickback where he finds himself with more than enough options.

Blvck Rose shared the creative direction for the “Video Girl” visual. “I wanted to perfectly illustrate the feel of the song, which is very groovy, vibey and fun and highlight the variety of beautiful women of the DC-Maryland-Virginia area,” he said. “The vibrant shots showcase each woman in her natural element enjoying the song, and I hope the viewers leave with the message that all women are beautiful in their own way and should be appreciated.”

“Video Girl” will make the track list for Blvck Rose’s forthcoming EP A Half Dozen Roses, which is slated to arrive this summer. The project is expected to tell “an international love story told over futuristic melodic production.”

The Weeknd Releases Surreal Visual for ‘Call Out My Name’

The Weeknd captures his dark emotions in the video for “Call Out My Name,” which is lifted from his new project, My Dear Melancholy.

Directed by Grant Singer, the eerie clip opens with The Weeknd walking alone on an empty street. The video takes a strange turn after one-minute of playing. When he belts the chorus, bats fly out of his mouth. The video continues to get creepy as The Weeknd finds himself in an abandoned theater and in the middle of the wilderness.

My Dear Melancholy debuted at No. 1 this week on the Billboard 200, making it his third consecutive number one album. The project follows 2016’s Starboy and 2015’s Beauty Behind the Madness.

Fans will be calling out The Weeknd’s name today at Coachella, where he is set to perform. His festival run this summer also includes Panorama in July and Lollapalooza in August.
