Mali Music and Jhené Aiko team up for a music video with a message. The duo has released the visual for “Contradiction,” a cut off the Chi-Raq soundtrack and it’s not your usual dance club scene.
In the Davis Silis-directed clip, the Georgia crooner and Jhené are in a crowded party where dancers seem oblivious to the chalk-outlined bodies that appear and disappear around them.
“Every so often music videos can stand for something special and important,” Mali told The FADER. “Have we become so numb to the senseless violence and other nonsense in this world that people can quickly disappear from our lives we just move on without missing a beat? It’s time we wake up and show each other how much we love each other before it’s too late.”
