[MUSIC] NONAME SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR “BLAXPLOITATION”
DEBUT ALBUM ROOM 25 AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE
Noname shared her first-ever music video. The visual is for “Blaxploitation” from her critically-acclaimed debut album, Room 25, which arrived in September. Noname is also prominently featured in the December issue of Rolling Stone, which is on stands now. Around the release of the album, the very private artist opened up for her most personal interview to date in a conversation with The FADER’s Rawiya Kameir for the Fall Fashion issue. The new video follows her late night television debut, where she performed a three-song melody on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, opening with a special rendition of “Blaxploitation.” Watch below.
Room 25 arrives a little over two years after Noname released her breakout mixtape Telefone. Upon its release, Telefone received nearly universal acclaim and propelled Noname to become one of the most exciting new voices in music. The intimate mixtape cut through the noise of an oversaturated musical landscape like few other releases have in the last several years. Since the release of Telefone, Noname has built an international presence, successfully touring the world and playing the top festivals. In 2017, she also touched the Saturday Night Live stage alongside collaborator and childhood friend Chance the Rapper to perform a song of his Colouring Book album. The New York Times called her SNL performance “a master class in poise, delivery, and self-assuredness.”
