Adele, as expected, has been the talk of the music industry thanks to her blockbuster fourth album 30. The set delivered the expected drama on the heart-wrenching ballads, but it also came correct with its own set of bops as well. Among them is “Oh My God,” which gets a slick treatment in its newly released video.
The Sam Brown-directed clip opens in stylish black and white as we focus on an apple in a wooden chair. The camera soon moves to Adele, who’s dressed to the nines and looking fierce in a variety of looks. She appears both by herself and beside herself as she sings about wanting to make a move but being afraid of blowing up her life in the process. The video also plays with the chaotic state she’s in with dancers and extras seemingly appearing out of nowhere as she sings and multiple other elements infused in shots that seem to be one fluid take spinning around a soundstage. We eventually come to the clip’s final moments with Adele holding the apple we saw at the beginning before taking a bite and walking off.
The clip for “Oh My God” might be the most stylized video we’ve seen from Adele since she dropped the visual for “Rolling In The Deep.” It’s definitely just as beautiful and entertaining. Peep what we mean when you press play.
