Crisp N' Fresh: Jazmine Sullivan Holds Down A House Party

Monday, August 30, 2010

File this into "house party themes" in the music video directory...Jazmine Sullivan offers up some throwback love in the visual for her sizzling single, "Holding You Down (Goin' In Circles)" and takes some cues from late 80's and early 90's hip-hop influence with door knocker earrings, sky high fades, big frames and chunky gold chains galore. It's a right homage to the (great) 1990 film, House Party and Missy Elliott pops up to throw in her two cents (as well as throw around some hair). Also do a Where Is Waldo and you'll find Pepa from Salt n' Pepa, Pete Rock and Doug E. Fresh pop up for some cameos. In all it's cameo and fashion grandeur (glitter pants!!), this video still feels same-old-samey. I can take the plot line of "girl-gets-mad-over-boy-because-he's-stepping-out-with-a-new-chick-so-she-dances-and-dranks-it-up-because-life-is-still-goood" for so many times.

Side note: I'm going to need those lighting bolt earrings Jazmine is sporting right now this instant.
