Kali Uchis Drops Video for New Single, “Tyrant,” Announces U Street Music Hall Show
Kali Uchis just released a music video for her new song, “Tyrant,” and it’s everything that you’d expect from the rising artist.
In one scene, she’s standing in front of a stack of TVs that play scenes of war and violence. In another, she’s sitting on a movie set, glamorously sprawled on a rug while being pampered, and then dancing under a sea of blue neon lights. The amount of creative liberties Uchis takes with the visuals is bold, but nonetheless the video doesn’t feel disjointed or cheesy. Like her music, Uchis’ aesthetic vision is boundless, and “Tyrant’s” video only affirms this point.
“Tyrant” also features vocals from Jorja Smith and will appear on Uchis’ forthcoming album due out this year. She’ll also embark on her first headlining tour that’ll make a stop in D.C. on Oct. 17 at U Street Music Hall. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 23 via Ticketfly–watch “Tyrant” below.
