Good for her. Not mad at this at all.
There are literally a million rap “videos” posted to nahright or whatever every day that look like that Pusha video.
After hearing this 10 times, I’ve come to this conclusion: it’s basically a perfect companion piece to Suit and Tie. Not a bad song, but it’s retro music pastiche that isn’t as interesting as the artist’s previous work.
this is an ok pharrell song, a lame daft punk song.
This whole article is confusing.
Azealia Banks is way more interesting as an brand image than an actual artist. Interscope has let her release dozens of failed singles in the last year hoping something will catch and I have a feeling this one will suffer the same fate. She gets an inordinate amount of press coverage because she looks like a model but she’s amounted to the biggest overhyped dud of the early decade.
it’s 2013, are there any bespectacled folk in cardigans left? Anyone who still acts like there’s something shameful about enjoying pop music sounds like a dinosaur these days.
haha, I feel like you’re the only one that’s acting like it’s embarrassing.
and the song is amazing too! kelly clarkson “since u been gone” level pop rock perfection.
oh wow that paramore video.
One nice thing about 2013 is I feel like the music videos aren’t as dark and pretentious. This is fun.
More like “NO one cares anymore”.
It always bothers me that these articles are called “deconstructing”. Isn’t it kind of a given that the article is going to analyze it’s subject matter? How is this different from any other kind of article? ugh, stupid buzz words.
Every generation gets the Fred Durst they deserve.
if you make a video for one of the most visually interesting bands in the world, you should definitely make it a confusing short film about a bunch of white dudes chasing each other around instead.
getting sick of 3rd world cultural tourism as a “bad-ass” signifier in music videos.
Wayne Coyne’s virgin commercial was great. probably because he didn’t try to direct it himself, Tyler.
Why is it that everything written about this band includes a caveat about stadium rock not being a thing anymore?
Not to shit on everyone who worked really hard on this, but isn’t the whole concept of a 360 degree interactive performance video pointless? I’ve never been at a concert and thought, oh, this song would be so much better if I could just hover aimlessly around the concert hall while the band plays.
She’s been on 6 magazine covers in the last year but hasn’t produced any new music worth talking about. She has 1/2 a good song with 212, but let’s be honest- she’s pretty, she’s fashionable, and she looks good on camera. She’s been coasting on the internet’s fascination with her looks and it’s starting to feel gross.
I think the article overstates how big a deal this video is. I mean, 70k views in 3 days is impressive for an unsigned act, but it’s not exactly earth-shattering. And at this point, the members of LSD have nothing to lose by posting hastily-thrown together garbage. It’s just a bunch of kids messing around and posting weird things they made to the internet. This has been happening since the dawn of the web.
