Do Over? BlackMagic steps things up with a 2nd Video for “Rainbow”



One of our favorite new musicians to emerge on the Nigerian scene this year is BlackMagic.
His track “Rainbow” definitely brings a new sound to the scene.
Blackmagic recently celebrated the release of his debut album – “BlackMagic Version 1.o“, now he is switched the game up by presenting a second video for his track “Rainbow” directed by Unlimited L.A

The first version was indie chic (*hint* low budget), now he has stepped things up with this.

What do you think?

    all of you are not serious. you see better thing, you will abuse. they show you rubbish song and rubbish video with totally meaningless lyrics and all i see is “dope video, love it, nice, both versions are a hit”. abeg abeg, i know i can’t sing but this is wack.

    I’m sorry but as much as I love this song (and I really do), it’s like he says in the song; “All that glitters ain’t gold”. Flashier effects do not make a better video.

    The first video wasn’t put down solely by it’s low budget but also by “passable” direction. The second video doesn’t add much that’s new to the mix, just a bunch of colours, some sfx, a studio, women dancing in better outfits, rapping towards the camera. We’ve seen this all before.

    I’m no expert but instead of a do-over I would’ve much preferred they saved the budget and released a banging, and I mean BANGING video for “Tomorrow” which is the song playing at the beginning of the “old” video and is also an incredible track.

    LOL @ Ant. I wonder what type of music u call dope tho. This is a great song-u need to listen properly. Its basically a song about choice and the video just interprets that. Different careers demonstrated by d gals. I agree with Smith tho-its not sooo different from the first and it IS better and d interpretation is clearer. Guess this will give him a better exposure-im sure that’s d idea behind this.

    All in all, “dope song, dope video”! 🙂

    I honestly don’t understand how you would call the old video “low budget”. How the hell was the boat paid for? The video wasn’t that bad but could have been better.
    The new version well seems better shot but isn’t a step above content wise.
    And what’s with the DP putting titles of “most sought after young cinematographer”? Whatever happened to humility?

    looks like he had more fun with the first one to me…the 2nd is (obviously) better in terms of visuals, but he ddnt seem into it…for a song about colours and the rainbow, it was a tad too monochrome-ish.

    all the same, a good song…
