For someone who consistently trumpets his own taste and ably namechecks filmmakers whenever possible, Kanye West sure has a dubious history with music videos.

The Child Of Lov – “Fly” Video

R&B iconoclast the Child Of Lov made his name in part on eye-catching videos for tracks like “Heal” and “Give Me.” He doesn’t appear in either of those, and he also never shows his face in the new PENSACOLA-directed clip for “Fly.” Instead, the video follows a few pretty young people as they skateboard, shoplift,… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This is the week that the music universe finally woke up from its long holiday nap, and there were a lot of fun music videos out this week. There were so many, in fact, that I couldn’t find room for the video where Charli XCX, dressed like a post-candy raver, shoots machine guns, and that… More »

The Child Of Lov – “Give Me” Video
