Watch Mx Blouse’s Stunning Music Video For ‘No Match’

Mx Blouse drops a new single accompanied by visuals.

South African artist Mx Blouse hit the ground running in 2019. They just released a new single, "No Match," accompanied by a minimalist yet stunning music video.

While in the song, they rap about a person they are over, in the video they are alone in a canyon, performing under a partly cloudy sky. Maybe the underlying message is that they are better off on their own.


The artist shows off their adorable fashion sense as they appear in a range of outfits, which Mx Blouse styled themselves alongside Anita Makgetla.

Sonically, "No Match," which was produced by Albany Lore and Thor Rixon, who the artist has worked with many times before, references with kwaito with traces of electronic and even jazz.

The music video was directed by Director Kit, while Kwanda MacPherson was the director of photography, and Lupumlo Tinta handled the editing.

Ethiopia's northern region of Tigray is in the midst of a war that has impacted millions of lives and affected neighboring regions, Amhara and Afar. The war — which has forced citizens to flee, has tipped the region into famine, and has barricaded humanitarian aid from reaching the most vulnerable — has now been going on for about 11 months.

As the beginning of the school season draws nearer, safely reopening schools, making education accessible, and protecting children from the impacts of violence in the affected regions is a priority for aid agencies.

"As schools prepare to reopen in early October in most parts of the country, in Tigray and the bordering regions of Afar and Amhara, where the conflict has expanded, education remains at a standstill," Director of Education Cannot Wait, Yasmine Sherif, told Global Citizen.
