Music Video Monday: Normani, PVRIS, Gabriel Black, Doja Cat

Normani enters her superstar phase with “Motivation,” PVRIS makes a statement with eery “Hallucinations,” and more.

This Friday was a gold mine for anyone who appreciates a good music video – check out our favorites from this week below.

Normani – “Motivation”: The jaw-dropping music video, directed by the legendary Dave Meyers (“Bad Guy,” “Sicko Mode,” “God Is A Woman,” and many more) showcases Normani’s insane level of talent in all of its forms: athleticism, dancing, singing, and charisma. By all accounts, this song + video are catapulting Normani into her true “Star” phase. If you’re catching “Beyonce” vibes, it’s because this song feels a lot like “Check On It” (and Normani is also from Houston.)


PVRIS – “Hallucinations”: Prepare yourself for some crazy visuals: PVRIS has released their second single of 2019, “Hallucinations,” which turns an exciting new page for the Boston alt-rock group. A dark, synth-heavy rock record, “Hallucinations” needed an edgy music video to match. What the group came up with is a perfect representation of the song’s identity, being equally as trippy as it is powerful.


Gabriel Black – “Dead Yet ft. Phem”: One of our favorite songs this year, “Dead Yet” is a perfect coming of age anthem that captures the feeling of teen boredom and existentialism (probably why it was used in HBO’s “Euphoria.”) The video furthers that narrative, themed around a house party and struggling teenage romance.


Doja Cat x Tyga – “Juicy”: Doja Cat added Tyga on the track to her already fun “Juicy” – can you even ask for more?


PRETTYMUCH – “Rock Witchu”: The boys from PRETTYMUCH show off their dance skills with their latest music video for the groovy “Rock Witchu.”
