Get into it below…
Sam’s 2 Pence:
We love us a talented act, who keeps pressing on. But what in the ‘Tekken’, ‘Final Fantasy’ mess was this?
Not the biggest endorsers of the song, it’s instances such as this where a video should carry the so-so song. Yet, this functions as the opposite.
It’s one thing going the independent route, yet surely that would make all involved conscious of the constrained budget they’re working with. Why, then, reach beyond the means when it’s common knowledge CGI (even with a decent budget) is more “miss” than “hit”?
Ironically, it’s the scenes “in the real world” that do the clip most justice – even though Ashanti herself isn’t doing herself anything of the sort with this video overall.
Between the song, its video, and its charting, it’s clear as Rihanna‘s lack of talent that this should be dashed in the “buzz single bin” and another release cued pronto.
