Watch Kahlil Joseph's New Kenzo Short, Feat. Your Girl Kelsey Lu
The incred director behind Beyoncé's Lemonade, and so many magical visuals for Kendrick Lamar, FKA twigs and Flying Lotus is Kahlil Joseph. He's just been commissioned by Kenzo to create something pretty epic.
Titled Music Is My Mistress, the short features your girl Kelsey Lu — her music as part of the score and her self on screen — stars Jesse Williams and Tracee Ellis Ross and is backed by Shabazz Palaces tunes.
In his typical style, the music is put to great use providing tension and hype through his non-linear story telling. The message is one that celebrates black artists and activists, made clear through not only the impeccable casting but also through the opening film rating: R, for "strong language and overt blackness throughout."
