Luke Bather - 19th Apr 2017

Emil Nava keeps up his track record of delivering slick, visually rich pop performance videos with an edge.

This clip for Jennifer Hudson is awash with electric blue light that drenches the vast, dilapidated space that Hudson performs in. Cutting between this sparse, striking visual and footage of Hudson making her way through a crowded rave is a great contrast.

Somehow the rave scene manages to be visually reminiscent of the infamous 'hammer fight' scene in Oldboy, except with more colourful partying and less hammer-based violence. No? Just me?
