Video: 070 Shake - 'Mirrors'
The internet has been buzzing about 070 Shake since her standout appearance on the outro to “Ghost Town,” the Kid Cudi and John Legend-assisted cut off Kanye West’s new album ye.
The 20-year-old rapper-singer, born Danielle Balbuena, started as a member of New Jersey hip-hop collective 070 before signing a solo deal with G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.
Now, she continues to showcase her talent in the video for “Mirrors,” a cut off her debut EP Glitter, which dropped in March. The J.R. Bloom-directed clip finds Shake and her friends driving up the Pacific Coast Highway in a vintage Mustang. They hit the beach at sunset before Shake drives off a cliff in the Thelma & Louise-inspired ending.
Expect even more big things from Shake, who aspires to make her mother proud. “I’m fond of people like Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Michael Jackson, and Tupac because what they said was important and they brought people together,” she told Highsnobiety. “So when I think about the person I want to be, those are the kind of people I keep in mind. You have to think past making it and ask, what comes after being famous? Am I going to die someone that was just famous, or as someone that actually changed something and made a mark?”
Watch her make her mark in the video for “Mirrors.”
