Trinidad Jame$ goes to the islands in the Jonathan Mannion-directed video for “Females Welcomed,” one of the standouts songs from Don’t Be S.A.F.E. and clearly a track that fans have gravitated to as evidenced by Jame$ live show. “Females” comes on, hands automatically go up and the crowd starts chanting the chorus.
Still, I’m pushing for a BET Uncut-styled visual for “Team Vacation,” which could be shot on a shoestring budget since the only thing needed would be a sizable hotel room. After that, the only props needed would be maybe 10-20 video birds, three to four ice cold buckets of bottled water, Fatburger, a small chimpanzee and an eight pound bag of white fluff feathers. Must have feathers.
Peace and blessings to Trinidad (and an anonymous Twitter friend) for opening my ears to “Sweet Talk.” That beat switch is everything and more.
