LOYALTY! LOYALTY! LOYALTY!
Kendrick Lamar has just dropped the highly-anticipated music video for his Rihanna-assisted single “LOYALTY.,” and its even better than I had hoped. The megastars channel a modern day Bonnie and Clyde in the clip, directed by Dave Meyers and the little homies (Dave Free and Kendrick), which is essentially a series of symbolic images, pieced together to tell a twisted story of romance, trust, and love.
We see Kendrick and RiRi pulling off some scams, fighting in the streets of downtown Los Angeles, joyriding, and even sharing an intimate moment on a rooftop. “Trust me,” Kendrick tells his Rihanna, before holding on to her while she daringly hangs off the side of a building. Now that’s some trust!
This collaboration has already got me thinking joint album, joint tour, joint everything. I LIVE!
