When a white R&B singer makes a video where he’s the only white person around, it’s easy to get suspicious about motives. But the glitch-soul pioneer Jamie Lidell, who released a self-titled album earlier this year, seems concerned with things other than just looking cool. In his “Big Love” clip, directed by Michael Carter, Lidell co-stars with Cincinnati’s QKidz DanceTeam, who would absolutely steal the video away from Lidell even if he wasn’t just lip-syncing on a highway overpass. These kids are a total joy to watch, and the video mostly centers on their practices and performances, not on Lidell. Watch it below.
Jamie Lidell is out now on Warp.
