question

Do you consider using the cover art in music videos cheap?

Do you think that it's  a budget / out-of-ideas thing or just conserves the esque of the track?

Example 1 | Tiesto, Jonas Blue, Rita Ora - Ritual

Example 2 | Taylor Swift - You Need To Calm Down

And how do you guys feel when it's for an album? I personally like this album cover, I think it looks good and I don't care that it's from a music video.

The britney one is a nice screenshot tho IMO I couldn't tell if the video didnt exist. 

I hate that taylor single cover, I like to pretend it doesnt exist and dont understand why it exists since lover was already on pre-order when this song was released... 

The ritual one is nice and PI is decent. 

Generally if it's nice it's nice. Don't care if it's some other photoshoot or just something to do with the music video. It makes sense to have a connection from the single cover to the music video of that single.

I wish she would have spent some money for a new photoshoot. I just think it's a bit uninspired :oops:

If it looks good no. Those examples are purpose shot photos from the sets by the look of it, not a random screenshot from the video.

Yes, so I don't mind. I do love new shoots, but from a budget perspective there's no real need to spend more money on single artworks in the streaming age. It made sense when CDs were primarily sold in shops. I think these examples look good either way, and being from the shoot makes them more recognisable if anything.

But if you ask me if I want it for an album cover, the answer is generally no. Those deserve the attention and budget.

...Apart from Glory, I didn't realise that was from a video until now.

Well paparazzis cover is from the video and I love it, but I don’t like when people use a shot from a music video as their album cover, like Britney glory, don’t mind if it’s used for the single cover as the image used is for the song anyway

Feel free to send me money btw
