Justin Timberlake promised four videos from four different directors ahead of Man Of The Woods. We’ve already seen Mark Romanek’s Steve-Jobs-inspired “Filthy” footage, and this morning we’re getting the second clip for a Neptunes-produced song called “Supplies.” It’s full of elaborate post-apocalyptic scene settings and woke sloganeering, it costars Eiza Gonzalez Reyna, and it’s … More »

This post was originally published on this site

In this space in past years, I’ve usually written about which music-video directors had the best years.

One of the most obvious singles on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. is “LOYALTY.” It’s one of the only tracks to feature a superstar guest vocalist — Rihanna, who also qualifies as the album’s only guest rapper — and it’s got that undeniable summer jam vibe about it.
