The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one featuring a Hamilton singer/songwriter who is making a splash internationally.


Ellis - Embarrassing

Ellis is a musician from Hamilton, ON, a play on the initials of her real name, Linnea Siggelkow. Although she hasn’t been in the music scene for long her impact is strong and here to stay, and she has received international attention. Ellis brings you songs through a melancholic dream pop-lens unlike any other.

Her video for Embarrassing, directed by Max Taeuschel, is no exception. Featuring soft blue hues and shots filled with feathers, the video transports you to a different place. Even before the bulk of the lyrics kick into the song, the feeling of coming to terms with your actions comes into play. The track centers around the feeling of guilt and shame. Ellis says she is “basically calling my own damn self out for acting badly and hating to admit when I'm wrong." something that can be difficult to do. 

The track is featured on her debut full-length album, Born Again

Director: Max Taeuschel

André 3000 Says OutKast Partner Big Boi Had the Best Reaction to Bars-Free Flute Album ‘New Blue Sun’

Three Stacks also revealed how Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean reacted to his instrumental odyssey.

André 3000 knew he was taking a big swing when he released his rap-free, flute-forward album New Blue Sun earlier this year. So naturally he wanted to get some feedback from his longtime former partner in rhyme in OutKast, Big Boi.

In a new cover story for High Snobiety, Three Stacks reveals that he played “some” of the instrumental jazz album for Big, whose reaction was just about perfect. “He was smiling… He was like, ‘Man…,'” André said of Big Boi’s response to the album with mouthful song titles such as the opening track, “I Swear, I Really Wanted To Make A ‘Rap’ Album But This Is Literally The Way The Wind Blew Me This Time.”
