This week’s #5NewVideos list consists of Yaeji, Hippo Campus, Vivian Green, and more.
Yaeji – Drink I’m Sippin On (Submitted)
To honest with you all, there is a short amount of words Yaeji says that is understandable to me but a vibe is a vibe. Mostly sung in Korean, the New York-based producer sings about drinking and forgetting what occurred in Chinatown for the visual. Yaeji also announced the coming of her six-track EP, simply-titled EP2. Next month, the Seoul-native performs overseas, starting in Paris, Los Angeles, and ending in Seoul, South Korea. Watch the new video now.
Hippo Campus – Western Kids (Submitted)
Over the Summer, Hippo Campus released a computer graphics professional’s wet dream of a video for “Western Kids.” It is a song about going viral from their debut album, Landmark. Watch the tech-inspired video directed by former Pixar Technical Director Najeeb Tarazi below. The band is currently on tour overseas and will head back to the United States at the end of the month.
Leikeli47 – 2nd Fiddle (Submitted)
Often compared to the successful women who came before her, Leikeli47 continues to show that she is a woman of her own. On an amazingly-produced track called “2nd Fiddle,” the multifaceted artist rides through Brooklyn and rhymes about wearing a ski mask under her hijab. The young man who adds vocals to the track is so talented too. Watch the video below.
Khary – Wet Dream (Submitted)
Speaking of wet dreams, Rhode Island-native rapper Khary shares that he thinks he found love again on a Luke Jr. production. Ironically, he doesn’t follow any religions, but according to some religions, traditions, and Ancient Greek mythology, there’s a female demon believed to have sexual intercourse with sleeping men in their sleep. The Lilin-demon is called succubus. Khary, we know your intention isn’t to freak anyone out, but they’re out there. It’s called oneirogmophobia, and they are deathly afraid of wet dreams. Stay safe, and keep shining young star.
Vivian Green – I Don’t Know (Submitted)
As progressive as she newly chooses to be, longtime R&B singer-songwriter Vivian Green sings a song about the possibility of being in love or caught up emotionally. The video opens up with a bunch of friends talking about hooking up and matchmaking to a puzzling end for the young man. “I Don’t Know” is the lead single from her forthcoming album titled “VGVI.” Watch the Derek Blanks direction below featuring Vivian’s twin, or alter ego: Royalty.
Ken the Man – Some Metro Boomin Type Beat (Personal) (Bonus)
Ahead of the natural disaster that devastated the city of Houston, and the surrounding areas of Texas, Ken the Man released a video for her hard-hitting freestyle featuring her singing and rapping. On the track, she effortlessly wraps witty lyrics on the Metro Boomin type beat, not skipping a beat. Watch the video showcasing the incredible talent she possesses.
