SOUNDBITES: Azealia Banks x Rankin // LIQUORICE

TALK ABOUT THROWBACK! Liquorice is a true reflection of 1991, which is also conveniently the name of her debut EP. The synthesised beat fused with her monotonic accelerated rhymes makes this a hit that will last the ages. If you didn’t know by now that Rankin is not only doing magazines, editorial, photography, but he has worked on a numerous amounts of music artist’s video, like Kelis’s ‘4th of July’.  And now he has worked his magic on Azealia’s Liquorice track. With a western theme, he brought editorial to the shoot. It was about bold colours, subtle tones, heights, poses. It was fun. It made me want to be there, galloping on a horse into the sunset. Azealia is working it. She is gorgeous and looks in her element.

 

 

Another fashion editorial style video I loooove is Ciara’s Ft. Missy Elliot ‘Work’. Not only is Ciara a phenomenal dancer, which we see again in this video, but she is fully capable of holding her own in the top model stakes. She works the camera, she is strong but feminine, which is what the track is about anyway. It’s official construction is sexy.
