The highs and lows of a relationship play out in this contemplative promo for Joey Bada$$'s 'Show Me'. The artist is in a reflective mood on the track, musing ominously that "Love is like glass/ You either break it or you stain it." It's not going to be all roses and bliss in the accompanying video, then.
There is a surprising amount of romance on display though, as a couple spend time together in opulent surroundings. Whether playing with a super-8 camera or taking a sunset boat ride, it's clear that there's plenty of affection to sustain them despite the hints of discord running beneath the action.
Directors Levi Turner and McCray Sutherlin have created a thoughtful, somewhat melancholy fantasy world for the characters to exist in, with cinematographer Andrea Gavazzi's painterly approach adding to the film's dreamlike appeal. It's very grown up work from someone with dollar signs in his name, suggesting maturation from the artist as his career develops.
