Well, that didn’t take long.
It’s been all of three weeks since Remy Ma was released from prison and the rapper already has already debuted a new video.
As reported, the former Terror Squad front-woman – who served 6 years of an 8 year sentence for assault with a deadly weapon – wasted no time putting her own spin on DJ Khaled‘s ‘They Don’t Love You No More’ alongside French Montana.
Peep the newly unwrapped visual below…
While we commend Remy’s hunger and work ethic, the video didn’t do her any favors.
Given that the track is more of a street single than an “official” comeback, it should have perhaps stayed visual-less if the right components couldn’t be put into place. Components such a competent make-up artist. Because, as much as we’re an outlet that is focussed on the music, one couldn’t but be blinded by that hyper-pink lipstick. It was shocking and distracting in equal measure.
Moving forward, we hope Remy really digests the fact we live in an image-driven industry. And, as much as that has always been the case, it’s even more so these days. Fingers crossed all aligns “right” the next go round, as she’s easily one of the most compelling lyricists around.
