Welcome to TWIB’s Weekly Top 10 Videos. This is a segment where we will be looking at some exceptional visuals from various acts from around the globe. The music video format has been around for decades. Through the 90s and 2000s, it has taken flight from multi-million budget music videos, to mid to low-budget videos with exceptional features. In this section, we will not discriminate but rather highlight some of the creative visuals that pop up on our radar.
Again, we promise to bring you the best from high to low budget, to animated to DIY and first and foremost, the most creative visuals we can source.

Kingdom Kome – “We So Fresh” ft. Salazar El Tabaquero


Kingdom Kome celebrates his wins in the new single “We So Fresh” featuring Salazar El Tabaquero. The bouncy tune produced by RUEN has a brooding texture and punchy drums underpinned by Kingdom Kome’s authoritative vocals and stylish demeanour. Salazar also steps into the fray with a laidback and expressive flow ripe with vivid imagery.

Sakolsky for Gusto Gold Productions).

Drew Dinero – “Out Of Time”

Drew Dinero enters our visual playlist with his new tune “Out Of Time”, a playful party track that sees the rapper in his element as he races to achieve his goals. Armed with a distinct and energetic vocal tone, Drew goes in on the naysayers and detractors in the game, reminding them that he is one in a million and nobody can stop his trajectory. The visual starts with a phone call that helps set the tone for Drew’s actions to go all out which he does with his crew behind him.


Rema x Shallipopi – “Benin Boys”.


Nigerian afro stars Rema and Shallipopi have formed the perfect alliance in the aptly titled “Benin Boys”. The title is a reference to both artist’s hometown in the southern part of Nigeria where they hail from and it is a homage to their resilience and rich background. Bolstered by a pulsating and driven soundscape made up of hypnotic rhythms, brooding brass stabs and exotic textures, the duo leads audiences into their domain with pure bravado and elegance. The visual crafted by Director K brings us closer to their lifestyle as we take a trip to Benin and we get to see the rich culture and splendour. The visual effects are particularly stunning and the extensive use of engaging motifs and set pieces is brilliant as well.






Homeboy Sandman – “Every Day”

Homeboy Sandman recently put out his new album Rich II which is entirely produced by prolific beatmaker Mono En Stereo. The 11-track project is led by the latest single “Every Day” and an accompanying animated video. The track is a perfect summer-drenched reflective tune that explores the very core of Homeboy Sandman’s life. From maintaining principles, and doing the right thing as a father and upright citizen of the world to upholding the foundation of hip-hop, Homeboy Sandman gives listeners a well-rounded take on what it means to go through every day. He doesn’t shy away from sharing his disappointments and joy as well and closes it with gems for us to grow on. The animated visual is slick and uses a blend of colorful palettes with lyrics to guide viewers from start to finish.

Eric Bellinger – “Writer’s Block (Acoustic)”.

Eric Bellinger breaks off the summer blues with some uplifting love vibes in his new single “Writer’s Block (Acoustic)”. This live version comprises lush guitar plucks underpinned by Eric’s sultry vocal runs and poetic songwriting that pays homage to that special someone. The visual is purely emotional and captures Eric’s mature style and classy demeanour. “Writer’s Block (Acoustic)”. is taken from his new album, The Rebirth 3.



Olumide – “New Keys”.

DMV tri-state-based rapper Olumide makes his entry on our site with “New Keys”. The mid-tempo track has a punchy trap drum groove and cinematic textures fit for his commanding flow and bravado energy. Olumide doesn’t shy from flexing on the opposition and carries similar energy into the visual which blends eye-popping effects with performance shots of the rising rapper.




Epik High – “ANTIHERO”

South Korea’s most influential hip-hop trio Epik High returns with the visuals for their new single “ANTIHERO”. The track has a jazzy piano loop, a pulsating bassline and a smooth boom-bap drum groove with excellent scratching on the hook. The title is a testament to their anti-establishment stance and a reminder that they never conform to societal norms but still get the job done. The visuals are slick and well-crafted with stylish visual effects, transitions and performance shots behind engaging set pieces. The track is lifted from their new mixtape PUMP.



The Allergies x Dynamite Mc – “One Time”


Prolific production duo The Allergies link with Dynamite Mc for this uplifting tune “One Time”. Over the jazz/soul soundscape comprising lush basslines, horns and punchy drums, the emcee proceeds with energetic bars ripe with adulations, bravado and a touch of reflection. The visual itself uses a symbolic theme that follows Dynamite Mc in the boxing gym preparing his mind, body and soul for the work ahead.
