Bridget Kelly and Kendrick Lamar have some real chemistry in the video for Kelly's new single "Street Dreamin."
The song, about escaping reality and spending time with friends, feels a bit like a dream in this video, peppered with spotted fades into new scenes and blurred images.
During the three minute Clifton Bell directed clip, we follow Kelly and Lamar as the two cruise around Greensboro, North Carolina (where Lamar stopped to film along his tour) and watch them roll up to a block party underneath a set of railroad tracks. The two singers each set their eyes on a crush, and the rest moves from there.
Kelly, and her brightly-colored sense of style make the video feel chic (and a little too hipster to resemble a real street party). The party is complete with a DJ, vintage cars and the R&B soul songstress changes her outfit about 4 different times during the video.
If you listen and think you've heard the track before, its probably because you have: the track is a sample of "Got My Mind Made Up" by 2pac ft Method Man & Redman. Lamar makes good use of the beat, and rhymes on it with charm, ease and with his signature winning smile.
Hopefully there will be more collaborations to hear from RocNation artists BK and KDot in the future. "Street Dreamin" will be on Kelly's debut album which does not yet have a release date. In the past the young artist has frequently filled in for Alicia Keys on Jay-Z's live performances of "New York State of Mind."
Check out "Got My Mind Made Up" below and take a listen to Kelly's recording "Thinking About Forever." We'll let you do the comparisons.
