BALDWIN | JAMILA WOODS


Directed by VINCENT MARTELL

Music Video

The song is inspired by James Baldwin’s powerful “A Letter to My Nephew,” and its Vincent Martell-directed visual is set in what looks like an abandoned school on Chicago’s South Side, but as Woods described it in a statement, it’s “like Hogwarts, but Black.” As three students approach the school, they magically move through an outside wall and are transported into a beautiful space, where everyone is engrossed in the day’s teachings, handclaps turn into fireworks and caring camaraderie is found throughout.

LEST WE FORGET [BLOOD] | ESPERANZA SPALDING


Directed by JORDAN PHELPS

Music Video

"Spalding is well over a decade into one of the most fruitful and strikingly original careers in contemporary pop…the conceptual hook of 12 Little Spells only hints at the radically inventive nature of the songs themselves”
