Heavy is the crown. The trifecta of SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott join forces in the video for their “Game of Thrones” collaboration “Power Is Power.”
The epic visual, directed by Anthony Mandler and shot in Los Angeles, was inspired by the final season of the hit HBO series. The Weeknd opens the clip as ice and snow fall down on the House of XO, while queen SZA dons a crown and sets the screen ablaze. Decked out in armor, La Flame has danger on his mind as he assumes the throne. The cinematic clip also features iconic scenes and battles from the show, which wraps May 19.
“We’re taking established artists and pulling them into the ‘Game of Thrones’ world,” said Mandler. “The show establishes all these different kingdoms and worlds. What I want to do is integrate the color palettes of winter, the warmer tones and match that with today’s biggest stars.”
“Power Is Power” can be found on the Game of Thrones soundtrack, For the Throne, which also features A$AP Rocky, Ty Dolla $ign, Joey Bada$$, Chloe x Halle, Ellie Goulding, and Lil Peep.
