Welcome to TWIB’s Weekly Top 5 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 and through the 90s and 2000s, it has really 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.

Jezeb – “Sunbeams”

Buffalo, NY-based rhyme smith Jezeb displays pure raw skill in his new release titled “Sunbeams”. Over a mellow reflective backdrop made up of solemn keys and soft rollicking drums, Jezeb proceeds with his distinct flow and vivid lyricism.


Ananya Birla – “Caught Up”.


Singer Ananya Birla shares visuals for her new single “Caught Up”, a smooth R&B/afrobeats-infused love jam. Bolstered by hypnotic percussion-laden grooves, sublime textures and rich pads, Ananya delivers a soul-gripping performance ripe with heartfelt and impassioned lyrics that run through the dynamics of a toxic relationship and how it leads to negative dependency. The visual concept follows Ananya and her partner as they navigate the parameters of love within a confined space and overtime tension builds up but the uncertainty that lies out there keeps them together for better or worse.

‘Caught Up’ was written by the Grammy Award winners Kaydence (Beyoncé, Ariana Grande) and Trevor Muzzy (Lady Gaga, Jason Derulo), and it was produced by M.A.R.S.

Be – “Hollywood”.

Veteran musician Be breaks his musical hiatus with the release of his new track titled “Hollywood”. The track is vibrant and upbeat and sees him reflecting on his life as he looks at things from the bright side while imploring listeners to go out and seize the day. The visual is shot in Hollywood and its environs and has a bright summer vibe.

Prezence – “Too Late”

Sedona Arizona-based multi-instrumentalist, and record producer GrantPrezenceEllman caught our eyes with “Too Late”. The genre-bending artist crafts an uplifting and vibrant tune that aims to help us get out of the doldrums and away from the dark clouds. Over lush electronic sounds with a soulful element, he delivers a blend of smooth melodic runs with insightful rap verses as well.  The video was shot and edited by Prezence himself on an overland adventure through Valley of the Gods, Utah, USA.


Rah-C – “Nike Attire”


Rah-C ramps up the energy levels in his latest release “Nike Attire” which is a pure lyrical display and stream-of-consciousness schemes. The visual is inspired by an Italian stereotype similar to Tony Soprano and we see Rah-C dressed in nothing but a bathrobe and boxers while roaming across different parts of Queens and Brooklyn.




UK vocalist/guitarist Bret MC embodies the spirit of the proverbial “TITAN” in this new release. The cash-carti-produced track is as cinematic and anthemic as they come and sees the rapper in his element. Armed with his off-kilter and fiery flow and insightful bars, he gives us a glimpse into his life and the many things that make him tick. The visual taps into the cinematic feel of the song and makes use of several performance shots and stylish cut scenes to match.

kingB – “U”.



Multi-talented artist kingB helps close this list with “U”. The heartfelt track has a blend of contemporary R&b with the 90s feel which he sounds comfortable with. His vocals are distinct and engaging and songwriting is relatable and honest as well. The visuals are a mix of performance shots and storyboarding that follows him and the leading lady in different stages of their relationship.
