Music Video Pick: Camila Cabello – Havana ft. Young Thug


Today’s TasteTV music video pick is by Camila Cabello, called “Havana.” The song features Young Thug, and the video is conceived as a humorous yet romantic telenovela.

Formerly a member of the Fifth Harmony, Camila’s solo career has taken off. Fifth Harmony originally found fame on the television talent competition, the “X Factor,” and they continue to do well. But Camila’s “Havana” hit No. 29 on the Billboard music charts by the beginning of October, not long after it was released, and it continues to rise.

Billboard also reports that Havana is Cabello’s third top 40 hit as a solo artist.

Not to shabby for the Cubana!

Music Video Pick: Dua Lipa – New Rules

Today’s TasteTV music video pick is by Dua Lipa, called “New Rules.”

The song was recently ranked as the official UK NUMBER 1 song and the first solo female #1 since Adele’s “Hello.”

The staccato beat is refreshing, with a repetitiveness that is catchy but also improvisational. The lyrics are a great match with the actual music video visuals, which show a love sick disenchanted woman learning the new rules of relationships and hookups from her various friends, and then eventually passing them on to others in need. The well synchronized dance routines are choreographed yet spontaneous, ranging in locales from a hotel bedroom, to the bathroom, to the hotel swimming pool.

The video filters and styles have a flashy nouveau tropical vibe that makes the viewers feel cool and hip, especially when seen with the multi-hued designer sunglasses worn by her diverse multi-ethnic ‘posse’ of advisers and friends.

In this video, the ladies literally walk on water. Once you start humming, “I’ve got rules, I’ve got rules,” you’ll find the Dua Lipa ear bug has been caught for this song. The rules are contagious.

She is currently on tour around Europe, Asia and the United States. We certainly look forward to seeing her act live!
