Watch This Now: Tyler, The Creator feat. Frank Ocean – “She”

“One, two, you’re the girl that I want, three, four, five, six, seven…”

Along with his now-notorious gang of friends, OFWGKTA, Australia has just seen the departure of Tyler, The Creator, arguably the most talked-about name in hip-hop right now. Odd Future were here as a part of the Vivid Sydney festival, playing a few shows to very mixed reviews. I sadly didn’t get a chance to see them, but I’m content for now with this new clip from Tyler’s Goblin album. It’s rare that a video has to “live up” to its predecessor – but then again, it’s rare that a video is one quite like the first single from Goblin, Yonkers. Not for the faint at heart, it’s a twisted and brilliant one-shot video that’s about as confronting as it gets. So how do you follow that? You make something completely different, but equally as demented.

He might be wearing a green balaclava and have his eyes completely blacked out, but that’s Tyler alright, lurking his way through the sleeping girls’ room. The humour here is so dark, but it’s pretty easy to be drawn into the whole thing. It’s really nicely shot, too, which might lend itself to a bit of mainstream airplay – if any of the music networks would dare share it before watershed. Who knows? Stranger things have happened. Also, look out for one of the members of Tyler’s posse (no-one else from OF is in the video aside from Frank Ocean) who’s dry-humping a boulder. Press play and that will make sense eventually…
