Zhu "Exhale Stardust"

One minute, you're looking very sleek and stylish in a secluded forest wonderland, vogueing through the trees with your very fashionable friends. The next, you're a singing fetus in a roomy womb. 

That's the strange turn taken in ZHU's double-feature music video for "Exhale / Stardust," two singles from his EP stardustexhalemarrakechdreams. The first half plays like a cool spot for a luxury clothing brand. It's very My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The colors are vibrant, the shots are poetic, and the dancer is beautiful and fierce.

It stars Leiomy Maldonado, a vogue dancer who's worked with Lady Gaga, Beyonc√©, Willow Smith and FKA Twigs. Maldonado's character is pregnant, but despite the fact that she is riding a motorcycle, she can't stop moving those hands. 

You'll have to watch it for yourself to understand. Watch it below:
