Families in Paradise: Tyla’s ‘Water’ Music Video

Tyla’s H20 Music Video

After a successful rollout, Tyla’s feel-good single ‘Water’ has an official music video. Directed by Child and Kwasi Fordjour, the clip sees the star prepare for a night out with friends before dancing sensually with her love interest.

The visuals perfectly complement the song’s raw emotional narrative, leaving audiences spellbound. Watch the video below to experience it in all its glory, complete with Dolby Atmos immersive sound.

The Story

This music video is a beautiful depiction of families enjoying the outdoors and appreciating their own true visions of paradise. The lyrics reflect on the importance of a deep and intimate connection with one’s partner, and the song’s pulsating beat is complemented by cinematography that’s reminiscent of old home films.

Tink’s powerful vocals and emotional delivery help to convey the song’s impactful message, which is a universal longing for a deep and authentic relationship. The song has resonated with many listeners, and it’s clear that the singer draws inspiration from her own experiences in relationships.

The music video features a girl who appears to be in her 20s wearing a flannel shirt and jeans. She steps into a body of water that appears to be a broken fountain, and she sinks in until any part of her is visible before disappearing. She then resurfaces in a different body of water, but she quickly disappears again before anyone can see her.

The Music

The song’s music is hypnotizing, with its soothing vocals and catchy beats. The lyrics are also evocative, exploring the complexities of love and relationships. Tink’s raw emotions are conveyed through her voice, making the track deeply relatable to listeners.

While Tink has not stated whether the song is autobiographical, its resonating themes suggest that it draws from her personal experiences. She describes her longing for a meaningful connection with a romantic partner as “like raindrops in the desert,” expressing the intensity and overwhelming nature of her emotions.

Although the song is about sex, it does not contain explicit details. The video’s imagery hints at a sexy scene, but it leaves much to the imagination. This subtlety is a clever way to avoid any controversies over the content of the song. The song has received positive reviews from fans and music critics. It has also ranked high on the charts. It has inspired fans to take the water challenge, in which they immerse themselves in a pool or tub and continue singing the song.

The Visuals

While the music in this video is great, it’s the visuals that really make it stand out. The lyrical content is dark and brutal, but the visuals add a whole other layer of emotion that hits you straight in the gut. The music video uses the Infinite Monkey Theorem concept — a theory that suggests a monkey typing random keys on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time will eventually type something coherent — to represent the way that Eminem is drowning in his own pain.

Using everything from the Rube Goldberg machine to optical illusions, this wildly inventive clip is one of the most memorable examples of what a music video can be. It’s a tour-de-force like no other, proving that the music video format is ripe for innovation and experimentation.

Another visual treat from the Shibuya-Kei alternative pop group Cibo Matto, this Michel Gondry-directed clip is a mind-blowing piece of genius that’s one-part eye-candy and one-part “how the hell did they do that?” The result is an instantly iconic video that showcases the limitless possibilities for what music videos can be.
