Thandie Talks: Top 9 UK Visuals of 2020 so far…


It seems we’ve reached the 6-month hurdle in the year 2020. Obviously, due to COVID 19, some artists creativity was limited and or completely stopped due to lockdown. Some survived by releasing archived music, while others chose to make new content during isolation and lock-down. Either way, we peeped the effort and here are Thandie Talks top 9 visuals of 2020 so far…


  • In no particular order.

DC – Neighbourhood 

Following a brief hiatus, DC made his 2020 return debut when he released the video for his latest single Neighbourhood. Great emphasis on Black British culture and fashion and 10/10 song.

Knucks – Home

After releasing hits “Breakfast at Tiffany’s ” and “Vows” for his debut album NRG 105 in 2019, Knucks’ latest sound injection was the video to ‘Home’. A true story-teller, never underestimate Knucks‘ ability to take his listeners to the scene of the subject. The rising rappers unique style and music skillsets are formidable.

Pa Salieu – Betty

Flying the flag high for UK music born from the Midlands, Pa Salieu has continued his reign in the scene and has explored inter-dimensional scenes for his Betty video. The single was first released in May alongside Bang Out.

Jords – Almost An Adult (Film)

Bringing good vibes all around, Jords takes listeners on his coming of age journey and introduces himself as a Black man with raw emotions, love for his younger sister and his culture and heritage. Featuring the singles: ‘Halos’ Feat. Thea Gajic, ‘Mrs Chambers Kitchen 2’, ‘Rose Tinted Glasses’ Feat. Jaz Karis & ‘Patterned’ Feat. Dotty All taken from the ‘Almost An Adult’ LP. Jords also released visuals for his latest single  ‘Black & Ready’; all proceeds will be donated to The Black Curriculum, a social enterprise founded in 2019 to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum. 

Scribz Riley – East Side 

Take a trip to the East side of London with Scribz. Fresh back from his double Grammy win and working alongside H.E.R, Cardi B and J Hus; The 26-year-old  made his way home. East Side also teases his latest track with Headie One ‘Impress Me’.

Melvitto & Gabzy – 4 Nothin’ 

Did you shed a thug tear when your first heard this track? Well, the video takes you to a deeper level of  ‘the feels’. Melvitto & Gabzy were sure to keep you on your toes throughout – wait for the plot twist.

Yxng Bane – Table For Two 

Never underestimate Yxng Bane‘s ability to show Black Love at its best in his music videos – I didn’t think he could top it off after ‘Maximum’.  This time with a quarantine twist – who knew social distancing could look so sweet-o! we even get a feature from ZeZe Millz.

Manny Norté, 6LACK, Rema, Tion Wayne – 4 AM

Taking afro-fusion stateside, and back to the UK, this runner from this unexpected four-some was a holiday from home for quarantine. Excellent views of Lagos – We love to see it.

Nines – Crop Circles 2 (The Film)

Nines has returned with the second part to his excellent project Crop Circle, which was first released in 2018. Did part 2 beat part 1?
