David Guetta, Bebe Rexha and J Balvin unveiled a vibrant new video for their collaboration “Say My Name,” which appears on the French DJ/producer’s latest album, 7.
Hannah Lux Davis directed the video for “Say My Name,” which boasts a tropical vibe and vivid color palette. The clip is interspersed with shots of jungle flowers and animals, crafting a unique visual complement to the scenes of Guetta, Rexha and Balvin performing the track on a neon-lit dance floor filled with ravers in eye-popping outfits.
“Say My Name” marks the latest in a string of visuals for 7‘s numerous singles. Guetta has also shared clips for “Don’t Leave Me Alone,” featuring Anne-Marie, “Flames,” featuring Sia and “2U,” featuring Justin Bieber.
Guetta released 7 in September, marking his seventh LP and first since 2014’s. The double-record features an array of collaborations with artists including Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo, Willy William, G-Eazy, Charli XCX and Lil Uzi Vert. This article originally appeared in RollingStone.

Halsey keeps her eyes wide open in the candy colored video for “Alone.” The singer arrives ready for some underground exploration at the party dubbed “A Celebration of Death” in the visually stunning clip for the remix of the song from her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, featuring Big Sean and Stefflon Don. Both guests make appearances in the piece which is co-directed by the singer and Hannah Lux Davis, and finds Halsey strutting into frame in a golden-glittered body suit as she heads to a masquerade ball. Halsey tackles the first verse with a cinematic flair while pursuing a past lover from her “Now or Never” music video.
Surrounded by guests in flashy costumes with questionable motives, Halsey croons her way through the eclectic crowd until she spots the angelic man in the balcony. When she notices her winged ex-lover being caressed by another woman (who also has blue hair as Halsey did in the previous video,) she’s overwhelmed with emotion, and runs to a fountain to vomit. Halsey later explains via Twitter that she is “purging herself of Solis,” which is the mans name. Luckily, Big Sean is there to console her. “Let’s hit the Maldives and hide behind palm trees, little red wine, weed and a calm breeze,” the rapper spits to Halsey. “Cuz baby you’ve been living life inside a bubble…when the last time you had somebody love you?”
For the final verse, the beat breaks down and allows Stefflon to add her Jamaican flare. “You always tell me say me full of attitude, and you don’t like mi friend ‘cause she rude,” she pens to an ex-lover of her own. “Still I pull up in the Benz with tha all gold ting.” The clip ends with Halsey smiling in a rain of confetti as the lover is left puzzling over a cryptic note she’s left behind.

UK production duo Snakehips have quite the list of collaborators. They recruited Tinashe and Chance The Rapper for “All My Friends,” Anderson .Paak for “Money On Me,” and just last year, they teamed up with Danish pop star MØ on the emotional rollercoaster that is “Don’t Leave Me.”
Their third EP, Stay Home Tapes, drops next month and in the meantime, we have the YOLO-endorsing “For The Fuck Of It” to heighten the anticipation. The track features two more big-name vocalists, Aminé and Jeremih, who in turn drop some even more recognizable monikers including MC Hammer, Queen Vashti, Ernest Hemingway, and Tia and Tamera Mowry. Quite the crew!
The song’s music video is actually the second installment in a trilogy that began with the St Rulez collab “Cruzin.” Directed by Can Evgin, it tracks, according to Snakehips, “an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit.” Here’s the duo’s full explainer:
The EP is a bunch of tunes that we made after a crazy few years of touring and travelling the world. We called it Stay Home as a kinda jokey way to express all the mad stuff you experience and the bizarre characters you meet along the way, and throughout that trying to stay true to yourself. The video goes with this idea too. It’s a crazy narrative that we cooked up with director Can Evgin based on an Asian woman’s journey through some incredibly trippy shit!.
Watch it Up, let’s say, for the fuck of it. This article originally appeared in Stereo Gum

With less than three weeks to go until the release of Alison Wonderland’s new album, AWAKE, comes the ambient single “High” featuring Ohio rapper Trippie Redd. The track is accompanied by a mood-enhancing video featuring Wonderland and Trippie Redd and animation by Jayme Lemperle and Evan Red Borja. It was self-directed by Alison Wonderland, with cinematography from Jeffrey Zoss.
Wonderland says, “It was a real pleasure to work with Trippie. It is important to vibe with an artist before we collaborate. When he heard this song, it was very organic, and he jumped in the booth and we walked out feeling that we had something special. I felt like this song had a certain spirit and wanted people to feel like they were going on a journey with us….just like when watching the music video.”
With two U.S. Gold singles already under his belt, 18-year-old Trippie Redd has been described by XXL, Mass Appeal, Pigeons and Planes, hnhh and Noisey as “rap’s next rock star.” His debut mixtape, A Love Letter to You, launched a series of viral hits: “Love Scars” surpassed 16.1 million plays on SoundCloud and 11.9 million Spotify streams in addition to appearing on playlists such as RapCaviar, Most Necessary and Liit. “Romeo & Juliet” generated 6.6 million plays on SoundCloud and 3.5 million Spotify streams. Noisey observed, “While most of his contemporaries produce gritty, bass-driven bangers, Trippie toys with melody and adds a softer element that sets him apart from the pack.” The New York Times praised his “deep-haze vocals, ambling emotions, and slow-fade resolution” and FADER said that his “hook-making abilities and confessional writing…immediately stand out.” This article originally appeared in Astral Werks

The talents of Sean Paul and David Guetta came together to launch “Mad Love” which also features the voice of the female revelation of 2017, Becky G.
At the beginning of the production, the subject was contemplated so that Shakira interpreted it and not the singer of Mexican descent, nevertheless, informative means assured that the pair of Piqué rejected the collaboration.
It’s been a long time since we heard anything new from Sean Paul, who has had great successes and a good number of collaborations throughout his career, and with the arrival of this theme, he paints to be a good year for his return. This article originally appeared in TeleHit
