Valentino Mitaj brings his European Roots and his new Detroit roots together in his addictive and inspiring sound
By Jack Barnes
Valentino Mitaj latest music video, “Beautiful People,” is directed by Ulysses Terrero, known for helming hits like 50 Cent’s “Disco Inferno.” Terrero’s illustrious career as a casting director has seen him working with directors like Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale,) Abel Ferrara (‘R Xmas) and Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.) There’s a narrative thread that can be woven through these influences—one that features urban landscapes and the intricate, multifaceted people that reside there. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
This is exactly the world we find ourselves in “Beautiful People”—although it’s pointedly (and refreshingly) painted with a pop brush. The video is on-brand with Valentino’s image, which is one of unabashed positivity. Vibrant people, representing many different cultures, come together to form a massive block party cum rooftop shindig. Valentino’s vision is an invitation to choose light over darkness, a plea to come together amidst divisiveness, and ultimately a call for unity—in the purest form of the word. Valentino hopes to inspire people to come together.
