Crisp N' Fresh: It's That Time Of Year For Another Abandoned Dance Club Video

Monday, August 31, 2009

Clubs/abandoned dance studio/warehouse videos can get kind of boring, especially if you've seen them done a gabillion times before. It seems almost like a special quota for artists to do a video of this accord sometime in their career, and for Mary J. Blige, I guess she thought that it was that time of the year to do a music video just like this, with background dancers and a rapper in tow. Not that Mary J. is doing anything wrong, as the video is actually entertaining and visually stimulating, but its nothing groundbreaking, just old hat. So for fun, here's a list of things you'll see in the new video for Mary J's new single, "The One". You might recognize the typical club/warehouse video images, it's like Where's Waldo but more obvious:
  • Mary J. Blige with a fierce haircut
  • Wheelchair Jimmy, rapper Drake doing physically nothing
  • Shades
  • A big thick chain necklace
  • Lots of hand movements
  • Dancing on walls
  • Graffiti on walls
  • Strobe lights
  • A room of mirrors
  • Neon tubing
  • A crazy staircase with the neon tubing
  • Skittish head turns (aka special effects)
  • Mary J throwin' down like its "Real Love" video circa 1992
  • One lengthy fingernail that looks like its going to slash someone's throat and open envelopes with
Mary J. Blige's upcoming album, Stronger, will be hitting stores November 24th.
