Hallelujah Money (feat. Benjamin Clementine) - Gorillaz
Gorillaz returns after six years with the apocalyptic "Hallelujah Money" video, the first taste of their new record which is coming later this year. The band has issued this song on the eve of the Inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump to serve as commentary on a politically-charged, historical moment.

British singer-songwriter Benjamin Clementine's "I Won’t Complain" is a particularly soul-baring moment from his Mercury Prize-winning debut album, At Least For Now. Having gone through heartbreak, homelessness, and reinvention, the 27-year-old reflects on his experiences in the heart-wrenching song, the lyrics bringing out a juxtaposition of strength and weakness: I dream, I smile, I walk, I cry. Today, Clementine shares the beautifully shot video directed by photographer and film maker Craig McDean, who also directed Rihanna’s "Kiss It Better."
April 18, 2016 by BOB BOILEN • Right near the top of this performance, Benjamin Clementine looks toward the camera with an intense stare and sings, "Where I'm from, you see the rain / Before the rain even starts to rain." At that point, when I'm already hanging on every word, I feel like I'm witnessing an almost otherworldly presence — a visitor with wisdom to impart.
