Halsey Gives Us a Video Sweet as a “Clementine”

Halsey recently put out a new single for her 25th birthday, and it’s a lot different from her usual sound, but we LOVE it! This is her third single off her new album, Manic, which is set to release in early 2020, following “Graveyard” and “Nightmare.”

The song is one with a sweet comforting tone, as it has an acoustic type feel and kid like echos featured throughout it. Accompanied by a simple piano melody, and soft percussion in the background, Halsey seems to give us the meaning of her new album Manic, as the song is a cryptic one full of contradicting lines. Just take a look at the mainline in the chorus, “I don’t need anyone / I just need everyone and then some.”

The video was something we hadn’t seen from the performer before and she even tagged-team in her family to help out on this production! The visuals for “Clementine” feature both Halsey and her brother Sevian Frangipane dancing through a dimly lit aquarium.

This adorable, compilation of shots has the siblings doing interactive choreography as they frolic throughout the empty aquarium, which makes the perfect backdrop for the cutest video of the year. The choreography for the video was done by Dani Vital who also co-directed the video, and it fits the song’s vibes perfectly!

Sevian even got a tattoo in honor of his sister’s new single!

With all the variations of songs we’ve received these last few singles, we cannot wait to see what Halsey gives us next!

Lil Nas X Makes The Best Panini

OK, not the best sandwich, but maybe the best music video. You’d think it would be hard for Lil Nas X to one-up the “Old Time Road” music video, but he showed out with the “Panini” visuals that were recently released last week.

It was suspected he’d go with a futuristic vibe after his VMA performance late last month, and the audio’s visuals put out ahead of the official music video.

This futuristic video has it all; holograms, flying cars, and jet packs. And you may see a super familiar face, former Disney Channel star, Skai Jackson.

As the lead for the “Panini” video, the storyline follows her as she tries to run away from Lil Nas X. After not being able to get away by foot, or by flying uber, she finally tries to leave by plane before jumping out the flying plane door to get away from him on the plane’s wing.

Lil Nas X stays true to the futuristic vibes with “Panini”, especially with the dancing robots, and he also stayed true to the song’s storyline, as it’s about those who love you till you get big, then things change. He received the idea for the song’s namesake from the Cartoon Network show Chowder, where Panini is a character. “Panini was possessive over Chowder in the show,” said Lil Nas X to Genuis. “She’s a representation of fans of who love you when you’re small. Once you get the spotlight, they aren’t feeling you as much. The song is not a diss, but anger towards that fan, but also wanting them back.”

The video depicts the song’s message perfectly as Jackson sees Lil Nas literally everywhere because he became such a big star, but in the end, she saw that he just wanted her to be happy.
