The Mid-week Music Video Mini-Reviews Round-Up – 9/2/15 – The Almost Caught Up Edition

By next week, we finally expect to be fully caught up on the music video review backlog. After that, nearly every video we post in our round-ups will be recent and we’ll go into a little more detail with our reviews. So without further ado, we present the penultimate edition of our catch-up mini-review round-ups that we’ve doing the past year or so. Thanks for being patient with us!

Jessi Malay – “Summer Love”

+A very minor point, but I can appreciate how they used “vertical video” without making the screen crop
-This video dropped wayyy too late in the summer. If promoted earlier, it would have made for a great light summer jam

Lions Ambition – “Cream Cheese Hot Dog”

+These guys always look like they have so much fun. I wanna chill with em one day
-It’s a chill video but I wish they’d step the production values at some point

AJ Rafael x Jesse Barrera – “She Was Mine”

+This song’s got longevity. Held up pretty well after 5 yrs or so
-Both of these fellas need to drop new music soon

CL x Diplo x RiFF RAFF x OG Maco – “Doctor Pepper”

+As CL makes her way into the US market, I’m glad she ain’t afraid to be bold
-But I’m otherwise apathetic to this song. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but CL comes off a bit try-hard

Aziatix – “Top of the World”

+It was an exciting past couple years, and even if they never quite blew up I’m glad this group existed
-I guess all good things must come to an end

Thaitanium x Snoop Dogg x Lil Crazed x Rob Campan x Traphik – “Wake Up” (USA Remix)

+These artists always have good chemistry together
-I really don’t know how to feel about grown men rapping on Airboards

Joell Ortiz x Illmind – “Lil’ Piggies”

+Illmind doin’ big things. If Illmind x Slaughterhouse ever happened I’d lose my mind. Oh and nice Rek cameo.
-I’ve got slightly mixed feelings about Ill playing the stereotypical Asian mob boss but I’m probably taking things too seriously
