Music Video: Nabil is a director at the peak of his powers – here’s Jay-Z’s latest

This week I was spoilt for choice for a music video. First, I was woo-ed by the jovial new Arctic Monkeys effort but it couldn’t match up to this absolutely brilliant piece for Jay-Z’s Higher. So, imagine how excited I was to hear that even though their characters are polar opposite, both were made by the insanely talented Australian director Nabil. To describe the above as a music video doesn’t do it the justice it deserves, so sit back and let this six minute short suck you in and spit you out entranced.
