The only thing Game of Thrones’ last season was lacking was, let’s be real, a great tie-in album, and now it’s got one. For the Throne, out now, is an album full of songs inspired by Game of Thrones, and now the lead single has a stylish music video.
“Power Is Power,” by SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott, is an emotive, immediately catchy song about the competition for the throne. It captures a bit of the same vibe as “Pray For Me” off of the Black Panther album, and it captures a similar sort of fantastical grandeur.
The video, while pretty standard for a music video, is still fun for the opportunity to see SZA and The Weeknd look very dramatic around Game of Thrones images.
Especially Jon Snow, actually. I would not have believed that Jon Snow was quite suitable to be the protagonist of an epic R&B track, but here we are.
Game of Thrones airs Mondays on Foxtel.
