ROSALÍA & Travis Scott 'TKN' by Nicolás Méndez aka CANADA
Rosalía and Travis Scott join forces in Nicolás Méndez of CANADA's video for TKN.
Sung in Spanish and rapped in English, the track's hook references the Sicilian law of silence: "No new friends or new wounds".
Surrounded by gaggle of children - sometimes anarchic, sometimes dancing, sometimes snoozing - Rosalía is very much the boss matriarch of the concept, protecting the kids as they stick close and hang on her every word. Scott can only watch on as the group tear across Los Angeles... before they get sleepy.
It's a simple concept but as ever Méndez makes it special with the meticulous composition of each one of a rapidfire sequence of shots. DoP Stuart Winecoff utilises lots of daylight and practical lights, keeping things authentic and real-world. The performances are top-notch, and the cast of kids thrive in the no-holds-barred, dance-filled concept.
