Katy Perry new music video with Migos
katy Perry recently released a new music video for her latest single ‘Bon Apetite’ which features the ‘Bad and Boujee’ hit making hip-hop trio, Migos. The video has Sweeney Todd, Mrs Lovett feel it, with the meat pie at the end. The video starts off going one way but then takes completely different direction towards the end, the whole video is bizarre but also entertaining to watch.

Jay Sean New Music Video
British singer Jay Sean also recently released a new music video. We haven’t really heard much from him since his departure from Cash Money Records in 2014, so great to see him on our screens again.
Sean had this to say about the song, “This video is very different from all of my others. I wanted to create a conversation about our growing obsession with social media and how it takes over everything in our lives. This story is about a girl who can’t get past her own phone even in the middle of a lit party. The love affair is with herself…reflected by the phone and all the social media platforms she uses every day.”
