Atlanta singer-songwriting sisters (and Beyoncé protegées) Chloe X Halle have their breakout hit Do It visualised in a classic-with-a-twist video by director/choreographer C Prinz (aka Sarah C Prinz).

The Bailey sisters perform the song through a number of sumptuously art directed studio set-ups. But Prinz tweaks the notion of a conventional glossy video: camera positions reveal the edges of the sound stage; VFX suddenly intrude, at times moving the girls' around the set.

Then the edit contributes to the deconstruction too, by bouncing between scene to scene from the start. The rule-book, to gradually reveal each set-up, has been thrown away, which will make it all the more interesting to its visually literate viewership.
