Michael Jackson “A Place With No Name”
The second video to impact from MJ’s summer posthumous album, Xscape, is for the storytelling “Place With No Name”. The melody of the chorus reeled me in initially back in May and soon after, the rest of the song’s elements did too making it one of my top-tier faves off Xscape. The video mixes in vintage behind-the-scenes dance footage of an early 90s MJ with a choreographed man and woman giving life to the story. The black and white transition to color is one of the many effects added that contribute to the modern feeling of the video. I enjoyed it and feel it does honor MJ’s legacy, so give it a look-see above.
