Idle Warship Are 'Beautifully Bad' Meaning Good Together

It's good to see that Idle Warship's 2011 debut, Habits of the Heart, still has some life left in it. As it approaches its first birthday, Talib Kweli and Res drop another video from the project for the track "Beautifully Bad." A white room is the setting for the duo's song about lost love. He's clad in all black and she rocks all red while a male and female dancer wearing the same colors perform an interpretive dance. Also on hand are a pair of ninjas who translate the song's lyrics in their fight scenes. I'm still on the fence about Kweli's sing-rapping in the first half of the song, but Res wraps it up on a better note and the video is an engaging tie-in.
