Rihanna Releases Her Official Video for ‘You Da One’!…

Rihanna finally unveils her sassy new video for her latest single ‘You Da One’, taken from her ‘Talk That Talk’ album. This is definitely Da One I’ve been waiting for as I am craaaazy about this traaack! She has hardly switched things up much in comparison to her previous videos  – apart from the blonde transformation of course – but what more did we really expect??

 I am probably bias seeing as I am completely in love with the quirky number, but I do appreciate the execution of the video, the artistic lyrical graphics and effects, the whole creative aspect of the visual – it’s powerful in that it clearly presents the song’s message in the simplest way, and it enriches the track and sits perfectly with the nature of the song.

Chris Brown Heats Up this Wintery Season With His Official Video for ‘Strip’…

Well Chris Brown seems to have dropped his wintery-themed official video for his latest single ‘Strip’ (ft. Kevin McCall) at the perfect time this ‘breezy’ season. Only CB could consider stripping down in midwinter! But let’s face it – this chilled yet frisky visual certainly helps to heat up the chilly days and our frosty bones.

The ‘She Ain’t You’ singer proves to be having a whole lotta harmless fun, acting his cheeky breezy self, along with lavish ladies he and rapper McCall would surely love to reflect the track’s title. Taken from his upcoming fifth album ‘Fortune’, ‘Strip’ is not necessarily an original number, or visual, but it’s an addictive one all the same!

Lady Gaga MARRYS THE NIGHT In Her Longest Music Video Ever Made…

Now the thing is…I really do like Lady Gaga. She has a brilliant voice, huge talent and a wonderful personality, but this music video for her latest single ‘Marry The Night‘ has left my heart disputing with my head; my heart believes that she’s totally awesome……but my head believes that she is officially deranged.

When I noticed that I was about to watch a 14 minute-long video, I was optimistically intrigued, but that was honestly precisely 13:51mins of complete nonsense!!! I guess I could never deny the fact that she is totally living up to her stage name!

I understand that the visual is representative of her past, but it was just uninteresting to view, it had no life, a bore to watch, and I have no words to offer on the final scene…

We all know that the unique superstar is outrageous/wacky/eccentric/plus any other nutty-related terms, but this was on a whole new Gaga level. The only part that just about sparked my interest was the dance routine – but overall, to put it plainly…I just didn’t like it.

Rihanna Displays Mixed Emotions In ‘We Found Love’ Video…

Rihanna releases her emotionally-lead video for her latest single ‘We Found Love’. Listening to the song alone, I didn’t actually imagine it having such an intense storyline; it doesn’t necessarily compliment the party element of the song but then it certainly does reflect its lyrics, and I fully appreciate that the visual dissects the track to draw focus towards the words of the song.

Throughout the video, we follow Rihanna’s destructive love-life; could this video quite possibly be a reflection of her relationship with a certain Mr Brown? …given that the male actor is quite a replicate of him in his blonde-haired days. Well whatever the influences, this is a great video with massive impact nonetheless.

Ri-Ri might find love in a hopeless place, but she is far from hopeless at finding herself at the top of the charts! Check out the video for the number one single below!


Beyonce Exhibits Her Baby Bump In Her New Vid For Countdown…

In light of the countdown to the birth of her first born, Beyonce stylishly displays that baby bump in the music video for her latest single ‘Countdown’. The ‘1+1’ singer adopts a cute, yet bold attitude as she proves that she can still rock it while she’s up the duff! This video didn’t make me go “WOW” exactly, as it is that kind of energetic, sexy, quirky visual that we would all expect from the singer, but can’t deny it’s most definitely a rapid and multi-coloured video that is full of fun and excitement. 🙂

Join in the big COUNTDOWN below!


[Music Video] Nicki Minaj’s ‘Fly’ Video Finally Lands…

The long-awaited music video for Nicki Minaj’s single ‘Fly’ featuring Rihanna, has finally landed. The video is set on a dramatic plane crash scene where Nicki exhibits her many eccentric outfits, alongside her bestie Ri-Ri. So here’s the thing…I do understand the concept of the video, emphasising the view that the ladies can face any tragic situation, yet still maintain their image and have fight left in them, but I just wasn’t as impressed as I expected to be considering the time it took for the videos official release – plus the amount of millions that was most likely spent on it!

The song is so great in my opinion and was one of the tracks on the rapper’s album ‘Pink Friday’ where the repeat button was constantly in motion, but my view of the visual just doesn’t seem to reflect how amazing the song really is. So as you can imagine, this is not a video I would choose to play more than once, but I’ll of course continue to totally adore the track nonetheless! 🙂


Beyonce Gets Steamy In Her Music Video for ‘1+1’…

Beyonce may not know much about a lot of things taking into account the lyrics to her stunning ballad ‘1+1’, but she certainly knows just how to sexually exhibit her bodily assets whenever she gets the chance! The ‘Run The World’ singer shimmers – literally – in her sensually-lead new video, which is in no doubt exceedingly seductive, yet tasteful some may say. I feel that she may be disguising the view of ‘selling sex’ with the symmetrical art, which I believe makes the video that more powerful and interesting to watch – I guess.

Beyonce brings to life that passion that is established within the track; the video is effective in that it simply represents the message in the song and is the kind of visual you would most probably expect for a song of this nature.

Feel the passion as you view the video below…


[Music Video] Lil Wayne Slows It Down On His Emotional Number ‘How To Love’…

Lil Wayne softens his heart on his third single ‘How To Love’, taken from Tha Carter IV album. The sensitive music video possesses a well-directed and thought-out storyline that is very fitting for the track. The moving visual features a vulnerable young lady who suffers a troubled journey throughout the early stages of her life, whilst also demonstrating a contrasting outcome; the accompanied video shows what her life could have been like if she had been faced with better options, and made wiser decisions.

It really does suit Wayne when he sets aside his hard-edged persona and displays his tender side, while sharing a poignant message.

Jay-Z and Kanye West Take A Joy Ride In Their Video For ‘Otis’…

The Otis Redding-sampled single serves as the next release lifted from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s album ‘Watch the Throne’. The accompanied music video is cool, feel-good natured and is quite a stripped-back video compared to their previous graphic-filled visuals.

The track itself isn’t really my thing but I love the simplicity of the video, allowing their endearing personalities to glow; plus you could even strongly sense the brotherly-love between the two rappers, as they act like two care-free, down to earth guys purely having fun, enjoying life, and success!

See Jay and Kanye in action in the ‘Otis’ video below…


Katy Perry Is Out Of This World In ‘E.T.’ Video…

Katy Perry’s latest video for her single ‘E.T.’ featuring Kanye West finally lands on earth for all to be amazed – her fourth No. 1 single on Billboard Hot 100 off of her Teenage Dream album. I imagined that this Floria Sigismondi-directed video was going to be epic after hearing the excellently-produced track, and gladly, it didn’t disappoint.

The singer created her very own mini E.T. movie that perfectly reflected the lyrics of the song. Although I could sense what the visual was going to be like and the effects it would entail after checking out the video stills, this didn’t reduce the impact it had from my first official viewing – the graphics and fantasy-like imagery were just as captivating as I expected it would be, only more of course!

The whole track altogether surely has abducted my heart … I love 🙂 Check out the supernatural video behind the awesome and well deserved no1 single…
