R&B veteran Maxwell dropped the second installment of his long-drawn blacksummersnight trilogy, the confusingly titled blackSUMMERS’night, earlier this summer. Similar to how Maxwell the man looks like he hasn’t aged in 20 years, the album is somewhat old-fashioned with its lush polish. It’s refreshing and sultry.
The visuals so far have reflected the feel of the album well, and the latest Philip Andelman-directed clip for “1990x” continues their precedence. The clip features Maxwell as the hankering suitor in night filled with allure and seduction. Watch a 30 second preview below, and head over to Tidal to see the whole thing if you have a subscription.
