Skepta ft J Balvin 'Nirvana' by KLVDR
KLVDR directs a palpably luxurious video with a brutal twist, for Skepta's return with Nirvana.
Set in a stately home, Skepta plays a butler, second-in-command to the head butler (played by Terence Vincent), who provides a special service to the beautiful lady of the house (played by Marlene Marie) - in the boudoir.
Things get darker when J Balvin makes his appearance, tied to an upturned chair in a dank basement. It's the first suggestion that things may not turn out so well for Skepta either.
With a combination of the grand setting, supporting characters and the casting of a glamourous femme fatale, KLVDR has graduated to a fully cinematic experience, with elements of Bond. Ultimately, the ending is blood-soaked and downbeat - like the better Bond movies. But perhaps surprisingly, Skepta's fate is not to emerge as a winner, but to be replaced.
