Not one to watch many music videos but there are a few that I recently watched that I wanted to comment on.
John Mayer – “Shadow Days”
“Shadow Days” is the first single from Mayer’s new album, Born and Raised, out May 22nd. I love Mayer’s music. He’s just so great. I like this song and the video is minimalist at best which I also like. Sometimes you don’t need a lot to tell a story with visually about the song. I’m sad though because this will probably be it for the promotion of this album as he has had to cancel his tour because of some problems with his vocal cords.
Rihanna – “Where Have You Been”
This song is one of my favs from Rihanna’s Talk That Talk album and I didn’t know it was going to be a single but it makes sense. This video is just giving me EVERYTHING right now. I love it. She’s actually dancing in it for more than a couple of seconds and its not dutty wining. There is actual true choreography. Granted it is fairly simple but this Rihanna, do yall remember the “Pon De Replay” video? Ok so lets applaud some effort lol. Although that is like getting a medal for last place but whatever. I have to get her on her little belly dancer hip movement though. Hahah she tried but it was so stiff. Regardless this is going on repeat along with the “We Found Love” video.
