Kali Uchis & Jorja Smith's "Tyrant" Video Is Basically a Lesson in Throwback Fashion

From Brigitte Bardot to Gwen Stefani circa 1995.

Having already heard the collaborative single “Tyrant” from Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith, we now get a look at the accompanying visuals. In the latest music video release, we see the song (which is described by the artists themselves as a “post apocalyptic love song”) get a vibrant interpretation infused with plenty of throwback references. Along with a pastel pink blazer with exaggerated shoulder pads and larger-than-life frames by RETROSUPERFUTURE, the decade-jumping aesthetic is complete. Rounding off the music video are some dance numbers against a expansive space dipped in vibrant shades of blue, purple, pink and orange – think “Hotline Bling” on psychedelics.

You can watch the full “Tyrant” music video above. To hear more sounds Jorja Smith, check out her recently released track, “Teenage Fantasy.”
