REVIEW: Bad Girl Special by Mr. 2Kay
MUSIC VIDEO REVIEW: “BAD GIRL SPECIAL” BY MR. 2KAY FT. PATORANKING
Written by James Silas
Grafton records released the video for Mr. 2Kay’s “Bad Girl Special” recently and the responses on various social media platforms have been very impressive. We took time to see why the video is getting that much attention and we got the answers.
Directed by Nosa Igbinedion and shot in the UK, the video runs for less than four minutes, yet it’s captivating and void of the regularities characterized by a lot of music videos on TV today. The story line is effortlessly clear and the artists attempt to take up acting roles was not futile. They made a good song and interpreted it with a good video. You can tell that both artists brought the same energy they took to the studio while recording the video.
The choice of costumes, both for the artists and models, was appropriate and the even though the video was most likely shot at one location, the ability of the director to explore the available space, is worthy of note.
In conclusion, “Bad Girl Special” would pass for another song that showcases the creative prowess of Mr. 2Kay; collaborating with reggae and dance-hall sensation, Patoranking on the song, takes it a notch further, but the height of it all, is the video. You would want to watch it over and over again.
