Drake’s Hotline Isn’t The Only Thing Blingin’ [Music Video]

The kid Drake has been killing in 2015. Everywhere from the Meek Mill beef to the mad support of Serena Williams in her quest for The Grand Slam. Drizzy stealthily dropped another Top 5 hit in “Hotline Bling” amongst all the other internet crashing occurrences involving Aubrey this year. This is a laid back track infused with another hit by Dram called “Cha-Cha.” Director X gives you a visual that exudes the musical feeling of Philips Hue Lights to display every mood possible when you receive that hotline bling. The opening with what most believe is the opposite of the 976 hotlines made this call center the official Eye Candy employed office with a beautiful water cooler for even the sexiest of gossip.

I have to say that Drake kept it thick throughout the video no less. But another attention getter was the hit making Canadian’s array of dance moves. What I took from it was Drake really doesn’t give a f**k what anybody thinks because he was the epitome of that dude that be gettin’ it in the club and don’t care who’s around. The kid even gave you a little bit of the Whop (If you don’t know what the Whop is look up Hip-Hop late 80’s) and to close out the video he politely lays his head on some *coughs* pillows. It’s going to be mad jokes about his twinkle toe moves but I like the fact that Drake is comfortable where he is right now and it shows. Anybody seen my celly?

“Holy Grail” Batman! The Official Music Video By Jay Z/Justin Timberlake

The official release of Jay Z‘s “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake music video was exclusively done through Facebook on Thursday, August 29th. No other music or video source such as Vevo, YouTube, etc. were able to air it until Friday, August 30th. Again there’s Mr. Carter with #NewRules. This piece was directed by Anthony Mandler who captured the dark side of fame. The song itself is what is not so much talked about as far as the ill side of fame and what an artist or celebrity goes through on their journey to reach this position in the game. And at the same time how to cope with the addiction and the demons of this thing called fame. The crazy thing about this video is the Jay Z fan base and the Justin Timberlake fan base well more of the JT fan base, it’s no way that you like both artist oh my, you have to choose sides. Get outta here. “Just nuts I say, nuts!” lol.

I honestly don’t mind the “slow down” of the track in some portions of the video but that’s a major no no to some who’ve watched it. I personally liked the way they flipped the beginning of the actual song starting with Justin on the hook to the beginning of the 2nd verse. Anthony Mandler‘s dark visual of “Holy Grail” meshed well with the song and its subject. And highlighting the Mike Tyson/Buster Douglass fight helps drive the point home. I think this was a hot video illustrating the not so bright side of celebrity. It was pretty funny seeing Jigga lip sync the beginning of JT’s hook too “And Baby”lol. Already liked the song and the video to me gave it new life. *Chopped & Screwed* “Sip-p-p-p-pin’ from the cup til it run-n-n-n-n-neth oooover, Hooooly Grail!” lol

Justin Timberlake’s Reflection Enhanced in “Mirrors” [Music Video]

Justin Timberlake keeps it coming with a brand new music video directed by Floria Sigismondi of “Mirrors” the same day of the release of his new album The 20/20 Experience. This theatrical music video is dedicated to his grandparents William (who passed away late last year & prior to that was too ill to attend Jessica & Justin’s wedding) and Sadie Bomar who were married for 63 years.

The music video is just as powerful as the song itself, looking into a couple who has stood the test of time through its ups and downs from when they met as youngsters into their golden years of today. Seemingly looks as if the couple are somewhat detached in most of the video but together through memories.For the most part of the video it’s just like a movie without JT being in it for the majority. If you have any ounce of compassion and romantic blood in your body, this video should at least get the blood flowing. But as soon as you think Mr. 20/20 himself wouldn’t appear, he appears catching the wedding ring of the older leading lady in a room full of (what else?) mirrors. And the pop icon hits you with some smooth as usual dance solo steps through the room full of mirrors in some fly a** Red Bottom Gareth Zip Christian Louboutins.

Looks like which is rare, Timberlake opens up a little about his private life on this song and video. It appears to me that Justin’s grandparents life, love and legacy will live forever through him and that’s an experience.
