Watch Nessly & Killy’s Trippy “No Mistakes” Video
If pop-up skeletons aren’t for you, beware
The psychedelic realm has become the rule and not the exception in much of popular music, and that’s reflected in the new music video for Nessly and Killy’s bouncy collaboration, “No Mistakes.”
In the video, a red-braided Nessly turns up several covert locations, and receives some assistance from pop-up skeletons and purple-tinted backdrops. There’s also a model or two, and even they aren’t safe from the Salvador Dali-esque special effects that make Nessly’s new video drip.
Nessly, the Toronto artist recently signed to Republic Records, will release his full-length debut Wildflower this year, featuring production from Atlanta standout TM-88. In a statement to Hypebeast, he explains the inspiration behind the record—keeping one’s eyes on the prize.
“No mistakes is a song about remaining loyal to yourself when a love interest is involved,” says Nessly. “She’s getting married to your ambition and your vision.”
Nessly enlists fellow Toronto rep Killy, the young rapper who racked up more than 3 million views with his “Killamonjaro” video earlier this year. Both have become popular names on Toronto’s mixtape circuit in 2017, proof that the city’s buzzing music scene extends past Drake’s high-profile OVO collective.
