Music Video Roundup!

1.) “In My Foreign” – Ty Dolla $ign, French Montana, Lil Yachty, and Nicky Jam

A classic hip-hop vid featuring too many features, oversized fur coats, and sports cars parked at an angle… Sampling Chicago’s hit from 1973, “Saturday In the Park” you can’t help but bop along to this track.

 

2.) “Company” – Tinashe

Wow… this woman proves time and time again that R&B is HER thing. Not only is her singing impeccable, but her dance moves are insanely impressive. Hip popping and hair flipping at its finest. Try not to get body jealous after watching this.

 

3.) “Maniac” – Jhene Aiko

With lyrics like: “Gotta read the sign like a zodiac, I’m a lowkey freak, you don’t know me yet?” there’s only one way to make this video represent the lyrics. Aiko is seen chained down to a bed as masked people hover over her. An asylum could be the location… She writhes and twitches in her manic state as she sings about, well… you get the idea.

 

4.) “I Got You” – Bebe Rexha

Rexha flops around a desert, rolling in the cracked ground, booty poppin’ on a car, and whipping her blonde hair around her face. Her eyes captivate you until  you can’t look away. Donning several dramatic & sexy outfits, she proves pop is her game and right now she’s #1.

Bieber Video Countdown

In case you live under a rock and missed it, Justin Bieber released 12 music videos a little over two weeks ago. Covering his entire Purpose album. All directed flawlessly by dance-extraordinaire Parris Goebel (she even stars in a couple.) Every video is mesmerizing and match the songs in unspeakable ways. Here are my top 5!


1.) “Company”: Hands down, my favorite song off the album. The video features a couple chasing each other around neon lights and a saucy hotel room soirée closes the video in a very sexy way.

2.) “Where Are Ü Now” – I’m still jamming to this song months and months later. Talented dancers sliding and flipping through grocery store aisles? I’M SOLD.

3.) “Children” – The energy from these young kids is infectious. Such a powerful message and delivered beautifully through dance.

4.) “No Sense” – Matching denim outfits and some dope moves. Goebel kills it once again. “Sense” is so addicting.

5.) “Purpose” – The title track off the album and now we know why. Dancers effortlessly trace around Justin as he sings about the ups and downs of life. Reminiscent of crystal clear bible verses.

Justin found his Purpose

If you look up “comeback” in the dictionary, you’ll see this picture next to it:

It’s true, Bieber’s new album Purpose is here. He did everything right; followed the dance trend in music, dyed his hair the perfect Zach Morris color, rocked some dope flannel, and actually started making music.

He teased his new music on social media, making fans drool with every booty shake in “Sorry” to every scenic landscape in “I’ll Show You”. People started realizing, the Beibs is BACK. Finally, we’re focused on the music.

Purpose is a diary, a compilation of mixed emotions, the ups and downs of relationships, the negativity we face in life, the love we’ll never forget. This time around, Justin makes you feel something. “I’ll Show You” is as personal as it gets; “Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing, when the pressure’s coming down like lightning, it’s like they want me to be perfect, when they don’t even know that I’m hurting.” With the help of Skrillex, a dance beat is incorporated in the most glorious way. A slower track that still provides solid lyrical material with real meaning, something Justin struggled with at the beginning of his career; not anymore.

Although Bieber’s specialty seems to be a solid dance jam, the song “Company” keeps his sultry R&B vocals alive while an addicting bold pop beat frames the track. “The Feeling” follows suit, with help from newcomer, Halsey providing an insanely gorgeous hook; “Am I in love with you or am I in love with the feeling?”. Themes of new age love, fame, our generation, and unity, are all reflected on the standout track “Children”. This song is radio ready and bound to make even more people fall in love with the Biebs. The chorus is a club banger while the verses are pretty poems.

Purpose was insanely content driven, as it should have been.

Cheers Justin Bieber, you’ve done it.
