We’ve been following Mabel for a while now and her new video reminded us again why we’re obsessed with her. In Thinking Of You, she channels Sade with her gold hoops, long hair and the way she eyeballs the camera. Great crop tops and some pastel pink stairs that looked like they were borrowed from the set of Hotline Bling.
Plus the video is shot in the depth of West London where Notting Hill Carnival takes place next month. Look out for Trellick Towers – which has quite a pedigree. It was designed in the Brutalist style by the architect Ernő Goldfinger (Ian Fleming named the Bond villain after him).
It inspired J. G. Ballard’s 1975 novel High Rise and can be seen in Horace Ové’s Pressure, the first feature-length fiction film directed by a black film-maker in Britain (in 1976).
