Usher’s “On My Way” music video, a stunning roller skating extravaganza, is a collaboration between the artist and New York’s iconic Flippers Roller Boogie Palace.
At the heart of this narrative is the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate, an architectural gem nestled in edges of north west Camden. The video, choreographed to perfection and dizzyling filmed against the backdrop of this brutalist beauty is a testament to the power of music and motion.
The iconic estate, designed by Neave Brown, stands as a shining example of how modern architecture can embrace innovation and colour to create beauty in urban living. It challenges conventional notions of what housing should look like and invites us to see the beauty in the unexpected. It’s not just an estate but a living piece of art. Its architectural brilliance has earned it the honor of being a Grade II* listed building, recognizing its cultural and historical significance.
The video is a harmonious fusion of art, music, and community. They remind us that in the midst of our busy lives, there are moments of profound beauty when wheels glide to the rhythm of music, and strangers become friends. The colourful houses of Leverton Street remind us of the everyday beauty that can be found in an otherwise noisy and busy London.
This convergence serves as a testament to the enduring power of human connection, the joy of self-expression, and the simple pleasures of life. In a world that often feels fragmented, these elements come together to create an unforgettable experience that resonates with all who encounter it, proving that when wheels meet music, and when community thrives, something truly magical happens.
