On August 10th, 2015, Kylie Jenner turned 18 years old. And now, three weeks later, she’s flaunting some PDA in Tyga’s new music video for his trying-hard-to-be-tough-and-sexual-anthem “Stimulated.”
The video features Tyga penning lyrics and rolling a joint in a beautiful home- you know, basic rapper tasks- when a barely legal Kylie Jenner steps out of a lime green sports car in stilettos (I guess I was a lame 18 year-old). While still pretending to read his freshly written verses out loud, Tyga raps: “I’m stimulated/ I’m at the bank, I’m penetratin’/ I’m puttin’ in, I’m penetratin’/ I’m gettin’ big, I’m stimulated.” Nope, I do not want to hear about what Tyga may be “depositing” in Kylie Jenner’s “bank.” Tyga continues, “They say she young, I should’ve waited/ She a big girl, dog when she stimulated.” Okay, stop, that’s just weird. So basically, Tyga’s saying she’s young, but man, when she’s turned on, she’s pretty much an adult. The rest of the music video features some pretty PG-rated PDA, like hugging and piggyback rides (thank God). The two have been pretty mum about their alleged relationship — until now (aka until Kylie was officially considered legal).
Throughout the song, Tyga samples a trance song by Robert Miles. The song title? “Children.”
A couple hours ago, Disclosure released the first music video from their sophomore album Caracal, which is slated to hit shelves on September 25th. The first single, “Holding On,” features vocals from Gregory Porter on top of a soulful, bouncy beat. The music video for the single is directed by Ryan Hope and is one out of a four-part short film. The whole music video/short film concept has been done before (shout out to R. Kelly and “Trapped in a Closet”), but when done right, it can be extremely successful; after watching the first clip, you feel compelled to follow the story.
“We wanted to create something very different with our music videos this time around, something unique that would connect all the songs from the album and the videos in a special way,” wrote the electronic music duo in a Facebook post. “This is the first of a series of four amazing videos directed by Ryan Hope that come together to create a short film… ‘CARACAL’ so, as each music video comes out… The plot unfolds. We hope you enjoy!”
The music video seems to be set in a dystopian world complete with strict, robo-type, surveillance-obsessed cops/soldiers. Mariela, the apparent heroine, flip flops between raging, smoking, and looking intense/suspicious throughout the entire six-minute video. From what I could gather (which wasn’t much to be honest), a couple sketchy guys/rebels need someone to complete a task and apparently, Mariela is the perfect gal to get it done because she has a “secret.” Shortly after, some sacrificial ceremony takes place and Mariela then gets a tattoo of a pair of particularly creepy, but like, magical eyes. After she gets her tattoo, she has telekinetic abilities so (or was this her “secret” that they were talking about?), naturally, she lifts a car up and drops it, which causes the robocops to chase after her. The music video ends with Mariela hopping on the back of a motorcycle and running from the super cops.
To find out what comes next, we’ll just have to wait until the next installment of the series.
