Watch: Bilal Releases Thought-Provoking Video for “Money Over Love” feat. Kendrick Lamar

Bilal Money Over Love

Along with the release of his anticipated new album In Another Life, this week, Grammy-nominated artist, Bilal has debuted the thought-provoking music video for his Kendrick Lamar-assisted record “Money Over Love.” With Bilal’s soulful voice, Adrian Younge’s vintage production, and Lamar’s explosive verse, “Money Over Love” is one of the most thrilling records on the new album.

Bilal has stated that with this album he uses music to tell the stories of others based on what he sees in the news and stories he hears from his friends and family. The Hans Elder directed video depicts a disturbing interracial love story that is tarnished by poverty and greed.

“Where some may listen to it and think I’m saying money is more important than love, the video depicts a love story that is tainted by greed,” he told The FADER. “Whether its justified or not, is for the people to decide.”

Rihanna BBHMM Video

Rihanna brings fans into a dark and sinister part of her mind as she exacts revenge in the deadly video for “Bitch Better Have My Money.” In the cinematic clip, which she co-directed with Megaforce, the bad gal goes gangsta and kidnaps a rich white lady in an elevator before carrying out her sinister plan. With the woman topless in the back seat, RiRi drives through the desert with her two female henchmen.

They charter a ship and get high and drunk in a motel room with their kidnapee by their side, but in the end, it turns out that the “bitch” is Rihanna’s accountant (the kidnapee’s husband), who’s been spending her money on strippers and alcohol. She ties him up and brandishes a knife before unleashing a bloodbath. Rihanna wakes up the next day in the suitcase, totally naked and covered in blood and money after the cruel and unusual punishment.

“Ya girl got director skillz!!! The concept for this piece came to me 8 months ago!!! So you can imagine how anxious I am right now!!!” said RiRi.

“I thought about it and I was like, ‘You know, it would be really cool if I had my real girlfriends in a bit of a brothel. But you know it could be in the 1930s, it could be—2015!” Tamar told ET. “And it doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re selling ourselves. It just means we’re all looking for something, and you don’t really know what each individual is looking for ’til you see the video.”

The song can be found on Tamar’s third album Calling All Lovers, due July 31.
