My favorite music video for this week is "I'm The One" By DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne. Directed by Eif Rivera who is named by XXL magazine as the " Hip Hop's Favorite Music Video Director". And I completely agree.
The music video is a splash of fun, energy and great art. Along with the pop music and hip-hop rap blend, the music is something I enjoy listening to whenever I need a pick me up. I like to sing along with Justin Bieber as he and the other artist declare "I'M THE ONE". This is a play off of DJ Khaled's famous phrase "Another one." My favorite line of course is by Lil Wayne who says "Looking for the one, well bitch, you looking at THE ONE. I'm the best yet and yet my best is yet to come!" What a sensational lyric of confidence and self esteem! Really fantastic.
What I love is the Classical Wave in the video. Classical Wave is a 21st century art movement that uses inspiration from classical antiquity. The music video is filmed at a luxury mansion in Malibu, California. In the opening we first see Justin Bieber and Dj Khaled in front of a gorgeous, classical inspired architecture. This classical architecture reminds me of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Much like the music itself the building is both grand and harmonious.
Grandeur, harmony, fun, confidence and classical appreciation is why I choose "I'm The One" as this weeks music video.
