Melina Matsoukas, the multi-talented visionary, has paved a glittery trail in the world of music video directing, much to the delight of artists and viewers alike. With an array of big names who round off her repertoire, the grammy-winner Matsoukas has lent her spirited and distinctive lens to the likes of Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, and Rihanna. In fact, her work on Beyoncé's 'Formation' not only bestowed the pop empress with an elevated air of majestic grandeur, but it also made 'Lemonade' a spicy, unforgettable music video album.

Matsoukas carries the unique skill to integrate socio-political consciousness with unapologetic display of womanhood using vivid visual elements. Take Rihanna's 'We Found Love' video as an example, where Matsoukas splashes a dizzying whirlwind of passionate love and self-destruction onto the narrative canvas. And who can forget the sassy young women running a military-like operation in Ne-Yo's 'Beautiful Monster'? Just her way of cheekily saying, 'hey, women can lead a precision drill team too!'. But the icing on the Matsoukas's 'cake' is her contribution to the world of TV series. Did you know she directed multiple episodes of the celebrated series 'Insecure' and ‘Master of None’ and even bagged a couple of prime time Emmy awards for her prowess? Now that's what I call a multi-tasking maverick!
