This week we bring you some recent MVs that are a little on the grittier side. Whether because of suggestive content, gratuitous violence, usage of recreational substances or just plain mature themes, they are included in this round-up. Does a little bit of edge make for a better release? I’ll let you be the judge.
Jason Chen – “Bittersweet”
-It’s a cleanly shot video but not super original
Jay Park – “Sex Trip”
-I still can’t shake the impression that he’s trying too hard to appear cool
Yellow Boyz – “Tipsy Toe”
-There really isn’t much here to appreciate
Mike-Dash-E – “Right Now”
-Gratuitous and over done type of video
Mike-Dash-E – “Down for My”
-One YT commenter said it was “Kinda dope…” and I have to agree. Not bad, not great of a release.
Traphik Features for Sonyae Elise – “FUKit” (Remix)
D-Pryde – “Cameron Diaz”
-Understandably so, but Prizzy just seems to have been in a dark place the past year , especially leading up to his Mom’s passing
Far East Movement x Hook N Sling – “Break Yourself”
-I’m not enthusiastic about a growing trend where FM’s vocal contributions to songs are shrinking
