Twin Cities hip-hop artist Dua Saleh has released an innovative video for their new single “pretty kitten.” In collaboration with a design team assembled by Minneapolis agency Zeus Jones, Saleh crowdsourced vertical videos to create what they call “the first ever fan-contributed music video entirely made of Instagram face filters.”

Speaking recently with Andrea Swensson on The Current’s Local Show, Saleh said the song is “about a turbulent relationship that is as sweet as honey. It’s addicting, but you know it’s a little bit rocky.” The track is a collaboration with Australian duo FnZ.

The filters, Saleh continued, relate to “my personal relationship with fluidity, and kind of an aversion to reality in general. I don’t necessarily want to feel human all the time. I just kind of want to exist. I feel entirely human, but also nonhuman at the same time.”

For more from Saleh, check out their performance in our studio earlier this year, and their debut EP Nūr — one of this year’s most notable Minnesota music releases. In February, they’ll be premiering new work as part of the 2020 Cedar Commissions.

    I typically gain roughly about $6,000 to $8,000 almost every 4 weeks using the net. It is great to quite simply replace my earlier jobs income, primarily considering I only do the work nearly 20 hrs weekly from home.I dropped my job after doing work for the same employer for a long period, I expected confirmed income, I was not checking out for the “get rich quick” home packages you can find all over the internet. Those are almost always pyramid system or stuff where you are going to try to sell to your buddies and persons in the family. I really wanted an authorized process to earn a living for me personally and also my family members. The most attractive aspect of doing business on the net is that I am generally home with the kids, I save a large amount. Frankly, it is much easier than you could feel, all you have to do is fill out a simple form to obtain front line entry to the Home Income Program. I obtained the instructions kit and thus within 30 days I began gaining over $4,000 every month. The instructions are very easy, you need not have to be a computer expert, but you should know how to use the net. If you are able to fill up forms and also surf web sites, you can actually do it quite easily, You do not even have to sell something and nobody needs to purchase something. It is actually as simple as using Fb or twitter.Here’s the ultimate way to start -> earn10keachmonth.hexe.in
