The funny thing is, My boy and I were just talking about how simplistic video’s make the most impact. Think D’Angelo‘s Untitled …
Or Sinead O’ Connor‘s Nothing Compares 2 U
It’s the simplicity of the subject matter (The Artist) that makes a visual impact which deposits the visual in your brain forever. Can you hear Untitled without thinking of that image? it’s a formula that far surpasses the big budget gone wrong, or the low budget that looks cheap.
A tear filled Janelle Monae strips-down for her new video for “Cold War.” The raw emotion fits this song perfectly, as this is one of my favorite singles on the Album. And the message is loud and clear.
Very Fly, Janelle!
