‘Street Dreamin” + More Videos [NEWTUBE THURSDAY]
This NewTube Thursday, new artists like Bridget Kelly stop ‘Street Dream’ and look at the ‘Bigger Picture’ as we move to the ‘Upper Echelon’, so don’t be M.I.A., ‘Bring the Noize’, ’cause it’s gonna be ‘One Of Those Nights’ that’s something like Wale’s ‘Love Hate Thing’.
Roc Nation’s Bridget Kelly teams up with Kendrick Lamar for the hit single “Street Dreamin’”. The visual features the two artists having party on the train tracks as they search for new summer love interests. The video was shot in Greensboro, N.C. while Kendrick Lamar was on tour there. Be on the lookout for Bridget Kelly’s debut album, which features production from Frank Ocean and The Dream.
‘One of Those Nights’ — Juicy J feat. The Weeknd
Here’s a look at the brand new video from Juicy J featuring The Weeknd for his new single “One of Those Nights”. This is one of the most artistic video’s I’ve seen Juicy J put out in a while because its more like a tension-filled, must-watch-until-the-end short film than his typical throwin’-money-on-strippers charade.
Love Hate Thing – Wale feat. Sam Dew
Wale comes through with new a video to “Love Hate Thing”, a single off of his new album The Gifted. Wale classes it up in an all-black suit, which fits well with the smooth voice of Sam Dew, who sings the chorus. This easy listening, soulful tune would appeal to all music lovers, and it’s a great cross-over between R&B and hip-hop.
Upper Echelon — Travi$ Scott feat. 2 Chainz and T.I.
Travi$ Scott shows his complex artistic ability with this new self-directed short film for his track “Upper Echelon”, which features 2 Chainz and T.I. This film is set in an eerie forest where all sorts of strange people, including the ATL Twins, are up to no good. I can’t tell if it’s just a compilation of random people and props, but regardless, it’s certainly is a unique visual that is the exact opposite of what I expected to see for this summer anthem you heard first on the #JazzyDriveAt5 mixshow.
Bigger Picture – Big K.R.I.T.
Check out the newest video from Big K.R.I.T., directed by Marc Ecko, for his track “Bigger Picture”, off of his most recent album, King Remembered In Time. For those who are still sleeping on this rapper/producer extraordinaire, here’s a laid-back video that will hopefully make you wake up and pay attention. In the current rap industry where drug and money talk reign supreme, it’s refreshing to hear a true hip-hop artist who is dedicated to making good music.

M.I.A., who hasn’t realized a song since 2010, comes back strong with her newest single “Bring the Noize.” This stunning visual compiles shots of poor Indian communities with the bright lights of the nightclub life. This dance anthem has elements of trap, techno and hip-hop, which give it a sound as unique as M.I.A. “Bring the Noize.” is her first single off her new album Matangi, which is set to come out in 2013.
