Video: Flying Lotus f/ Kendrick Lamar – ‘Never Catch Me’

Flying Lotus

Flying Lotus explores life after death in the Hiro Murai-directed video for “Never Catch Me,” which expands on the fantastical dream state imagery found in the video for ““Until the Quiet Comes”.”


The dark visuals start off at a funeral for a young boy and girl, but the sadness soon fades. Their souls rise out of their coffins and start to dance in front of the mourners before playing games in the backyard. With a smile on their faces, they drive off in a hearse as children chase them down the street.


The song will appear on Flying Lotus’ album You’re Dead! (due Oct. 7) featuring Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and Kendrick.


“It just came about sort of naturally,” Lotus told Rolling Stone of collaborating with K-Dot. “He came through the crib and recorded it and it was great. The funny part is, though, that he wanted to keep that shit for his album. When I first sent him the track, he was trying to convince me to give it to him. Like, ‘Nah, man, I need that!’”

You may know her from Wale’s hit “Bad,” but Tiara Thomas can be bad all by herself. The singer-songwriter pulls off a heist in the cinematic video for her Rico Love-produced single “One Night.”


In The ENDS-directed clip, inspired by Set It Off, an armed and dangerous Tiara robs a bank where her boyfriend works. She fires off machine guns, while her partners in crime tie up her man and hold him hostage. But wait for the big twist at the end.


“One Night” will appear on Tiara’s upcoming debut The Bad Influence, due on Division1/Interscope.

Mary J. Blige

Hail Mary. After debuting the singles “Therapy” and “Whole Damn Year,” the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul blesses us with another song off her upcoming album The London Sessions . Over a pulsing electro beat, Mary yearns to be in the arms of her lover.


“You’re the only one I’m there for / The only one I care for / Nobody but you,” she sings.


Earlier today, she called into Ryan Seacrest to praise Sam Smith, who wrote on her album. “There hasn’t been a voice to come along in a very long time that has so much emotion, so much depth, so much truth, so much finesse, so much soul, so much style,” she said of the British crooner. “There hasn’t been anything like this since the Mary J. Blige movement.”


MJB has assembled some of the U.K.’s finest including Disclosure, Emile Sandé, and Naughty Boy for Sessions, which will be released on December 2.
