D’Angelo’s “Untitled” video is easily one of the best music videos ever made. I’m trying to imagine somebody pitching the concept — “It’s just gonna be slow shots of D’Angelo with his shirt off.” THAT’S IT. Possibly the simplest music video ever, and one of the most brilliant. Much like “Single Ladies,” it’s a consistent reference point for me when coming up with video concepts.
In case you missed it, a brand new Leonard Friend single was released a few days ago, entitled “Every Woman.” It’s available for free download on my Soundcloud page (soundcloud.com/leonardfriend), so please pass it along, retweet, post, and share!
