I can’t believe the audacity of some bloggers that have the nerve to comment “the wait is over yawn.” They must have something in their eye, be it a glass eye or contact lenses but surely not 20:20 vision. Personally I really like the cinematography, the pace and the idea behind the video. The song lyrics and Rihanna’s flow on this track is totally unique and sounds like nothing that is already on the radio. Rihanna’s figure looks stunning and there are no additional dancers or gimmicks within the video. Rihanna doesn’t feature a rapper on the track and genuinely holds this track on her own merit with her swagger in check. Ultimately within the video Rihanna does what she does best by just rocking the video by keeping it edgy, simple but effective. The video is visually flawless and the album “Rated R”is available in stores 23rd November 2009.
Video Phone Featuring Lady Gaga Premiers today. The video has shot by Hype Williams at a New York location back in October was filmed on a closed set hence the reason there are no supporting images. Fingers crossed this video should put an end to the encroaching recession that has been impacting on many music videos. Gaga wrote her versus, learned Beyonce’s signature choreography and does her own playful take on the inspirational diva. The fashion is said to be sick and insane. Lady Gaga refuses to elaborate on what happens in the video as it is essentially an unreleased remix taken from Sacha Fierce Deluxe Edition which will feature five number one hits and two bonus tracks. The fiercest females in the game tag team also recorded an original song titled “telephone.” which will appear on Gaga’s new Album the Monster. It is refreshing to have real artists like Lady Gaga and Beyonce who are both talented performers, fearless, creative, intelligent and gracious.
