You have sincerely made it when Dennis Quaid plays a role in your music video.
That’s what happened for Midland while Dennis agreed to play a function in Midland’s “Mr. Lonely” tune video.
Shot on one of the maximum popular Netflix soundstages, Midland’s video starts out with a colorful honky tonk inside the heritage, directly taking pictures to pool sticks, and twirling line dancers accumulate in the room.

See what happens subsequent by way of looking at Midland’s “Mr. Lonely” Director’s Cut track video under.
Midland’s bandmembers can be acquainted with Dennis Quaid’s individual. Let’s face it, life on the street can be lonely. In a recent sit down with the trio, Cody Alan asked the difficult query, “Who do you name while you’re lonely?” “I call Moviefone to hear what type of movies are available.” Says Jess Carson.

It’s 2019, and a robust case could be made that Madonna has launched the maximum compelling tune video of any most important American pure pop artist so far this yr. On one hand, that should not be too controversial a statement. Madonna is a grasp of the shape (certainly, she likely wouldn’t have come to be an international superstar without her compelling visuals). Her reflexes are nonetheless sharp, and the hints of the change she employs nonetheless endure fruit. In quick, she very a good deal is aware of what she’s doing.
On the other hand, her “Medellín” video, offering Colombian star Maluma, isn’t going to be unsuitable with the aid of all people for her career quality. Nor is it in all likelihood you can factor to any objective degree as proof of its superiority. The mission actually is not going to be the most regarded tune video of the week, and even as the music is already at primary on Billboard’s Latin Digital Song Sales chart, it could no longer reach her past heights. Madonna’s fans are extraordinarily loyal (her tour ticket income is nevertheless notoriously sturdy, and we probably won’t see her camp out in Vegas for some time), but they aren’t the type to put a YouTube video on repeat for hours at a time to inflate views, nor try and get humans to download the music on Twitter with faux Starbucks promotions. They’re typically adults. They have jobs. That’s how they manage to pay for those live performance tickets.
Still, Madonna is aware of how to procure a fresh and precise visual. Spanish multimedia artists Diana Kunst & Mau Morgo directed the video, and their handiest preceding exploits within the medium are two films for Rosalia and one for A$AP Rocky and FKA Twigs. There’s additionally the fact that she knows what to do whilst a digicam is on her. Go again through her video filmography and you will notice most of her movies include at the least one setup wherein Madonna is secluded, usually just up against a random wall or background, and left to improvise thru dance and widespread vamping (certainly, this is the whole strategy behind as a minimum some of her extra affordably produced videos). Here, the vamping takes vicinity with Maluma on a mattress. She finally ends up licking his toes in a second that did not appear preplanned. It’s bizarre, however, it’s also conventional Madonna. Even with all of the stylistic flares, Madonna can nonetheless one-up another issue of the video just via being herself.
