Mahalia - "I Wish I Missed My Ex" MV



I've been a fan of Mahalia since I stumbled upon her "Colors TV" performance. She has such a beautiful voice (and eyes!) and I've been on an English kick for a couple years so digging' the accent, too. But her knew video is an homage to The Pharcyde and shot in Highland Park. She's coming back stateside for a mini North America run. Check dates below video...who knows, you may catch me at one of 'em.


"The video, directed by Andrew Litten and shot in reverse over 22 hours, is a fitting stylistic nod to the Pharcyde's classic "Drop" video helmed by Spike Jonze. "I hired a linguist from UCLA to teach Mahalia the song backwards which she surprisingly learned in two days," Litten told Complex. "The DP, Dustin Lane, and I have always wanted to make something in our neighborhood Highland Park. We chose family-owned locations and hired a few extras while scouting the neighborhood. Mahalia's reversed performance oozes spontaneity and confidence. I can't thank her enough for joining us on the journey, and signing on to recreate this insane concept." - Complex Mag
