Music Video: B.o.B., I’ll Be in the Sky

Song: I’ll Be in the Sky
Artist: B.o.B.
Album: The Adventures of B.o.B.
Label: Grand Hustle / Atlantic Records
Producer: B.o.B.
Analysis: ‘I’ll Be in the Sky’ is an insanely catchy, jubilant fusion of a sing-a-long hook and some cool, colorful hip hop that is reminiscent of Outkast, Cee-Lo and pretty much every other member of Goodie Mob. B.o.B. is a signee of T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records, but I have a feeling that by the time T.I. finishes his jail stint (which begins later this year), B.o.B. will be an even bigger star than his boss. The video itself is a semi-narrative, with B.o.B. landing on earth as some sort of human meteor in the beginning, but that storyline is almost forgotten about throughout the rest of the video. He does, however, show off some piano playing skills, and that actually is him playing the keys on the track. This was one of my favorite songs from the end of ’08, and B.o.B. is one of the most promising up-and-coming artists in any genre, so naturally I am anxiously awaiting The Adventures of B.o.B. to be released (tentatively summer ’09).
