Earlier this month, Solange dropped her new album When I Get Home, and it was accompanied by a 33-minute short film of the same name. The film featured some flashy production as seen by her “Almeda” video, which features a cowboy, twelve DeLoreans, a bunch of dancers, various sets, and other bits of evidence that this was a big-time production. Now, she has shared a new video for the song “Binz,” and she took a markedly different approach to the clip.
The song is already pretty short at 1:51, but the video uses a truncated version of the song and runs for fewer than 90 seconds. As for the video, it’s very simple: It’s a compilation of footage that Solange shot of herself, presumably on her phone, dancing in front of the camera. She changes outfits and locations a number of times, but that’s about all there is to say when it comes to this video. The clip serves its purpose: It’s an entertaining diversion, and Solange’s constant smile throughout suggests that she had a fun time making it.
“Binz” was co-written and co-produced by Panda Bear, and he’s just one of many collaborators on When I Get Home, as the album also features Dev Hynes, Sampha, Tyler The Creator, Playboi Carti, Gucci Mane, and others.
