The official music video for “Power Is Power” by SZA, The Weeknd, and Travis Scott – from the recently released Game of Thrones compilation album “For the Throne” – is now online!
Longtime fans of Game of Thrones will know that the title of the song is in reference to a scene from season two of the series – Littlefinger is trying to convince Cersei Lannister that knowledge is the true power in the Seven Kingdoms, to which Cersei responds by having the Kingsguard seize Lord Baelish and threaten to cut his throat. “Power is power,” she reminds the now-deceased chaotic ladder-climber. You can watch the full scene here.
Produced by Black Hand Cinema and directed by Anthony Mandler (known for his many collaborations with Rihanna), the music video doesn’t feature much in the way of new footage, but it is nevertheless interesting to see the world of Westeros and the events of the show interpreted by incredibly talented music artists – both lyrically and visually.
