Vald: our 5 favorite music videos

On the occasion of the release of his last big clip Look at you, we wondered what were our 5 favorites from the rapper from Aulnay-Sous-Bois. A very complicated choice given the number of clips released and their quality, but we committed to doing it… so here we go!

Eurotrap (2016)

Unveiled as the first single from the album Agartha, the piece already cult by its musicality was going to make noise with or without imagery. But Vald insisted on clipping this title which he describes as “Viking Trap” to press a little more on the singularity ofEurotrap. He will tell in an interview for Rapelite that the idea, at the base, was to shoot in the north of France accompanied by tuning cars and to push the “kéké” universe to the limit. But lack of time and organization, the project will end with Vald gesticulating in front of a green screen. Green background which will not be used at any time. Where some see it as a sloppy clip, we will appreciate the spontaneity of the clip and the idea that anyone can use the green screen to place special effects on it, giving rise to rather stylish montages! In short, definitely one of our favorite clips!

Personal Diary 2 (2019)

Another single announcing a new album, but this time it’s the first single from This World is Cruel. As Eurotrapthe clip of Personal Diary 2 was produced by Kub & Cristo showing a real alchemy between the artist’s vision and the real. The title is intended to be very introspective and structured with a single and long verse accompanied by a sublime piano composition by Sofiane Pamart. We expect no less for the clip, and for once it’s successful! Vald transforms into a cold, bloody killer in a sublime setting. An eventful even violent scenario, a successful casting (Astrid Nelsia, Juliette Grenat, Boubaker Nouma, Adrian Monalli), cinematographic references with in particular the gloves of Ryan Gosling in Drive, in clear everything is there.

Peon feat. OrelSan (2022)

Released 2 months after his last album, V, Vald reveals the highly anticipated music video Peon in collaboration with OrelSan. A track that has been hugely successful due to its message and aesthetics, but what about this clip. We knew the two artists were very meticulous in their artistic direction, and this blockbuster validates our point a little more. Vald and OrelSan together dive into a universe of extremely impressive visuals with super dynamic editing. There are also cinematographic references once again (Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc.) but also to the respective careers of the rappers with winks to Lost in advance or even Mermaids’ song. They have rarely disappointed us and it’s not with this clip that it will start!

By Toutatis (2014)

Again Kub & Cristo à la réal and à la modeEurotrap we find a Vald with crazy ideas (and we like that a lot). In this clip, you will meet Sub-Brigadier AD, Brigadier Inch and the already cult Brigadier-Chief Vald. Representatives of law enforcement with rather specific intimidation techniques and multiple temptations (drugs, women, weapons, etc.). Inspired by the duo from the film Bad Boys, which they have posted in their office, the police are called upon to intervene during a party and obviously nothing will happen as planned. A clip with a budget not comparable to the two clips mentioned above but which is extremely entertaining and light (even if it stinks of alcohol).

Look at you (2022)

For this last clip, we chose Vald’s latest, Look at you. In the continuity of what was recently posted online by the rapper, we find a strong Vald of interpretations in a singular and magnificently worked clip. Inspired by the movie ex machina, the V talks about his romantic relationship through a robot, with whom he lives, whose behaviors have been carefully studied during experiments. The clip ends with a scene where we can think that Vald ends up in turn becoming an android. A very successful video which, we hope, will make listeners want to dive into the world of v.
