Song: Manwomanboogie [ft. Amanda Diva]
Artist: Q-Tip
Album: The Renaissance
Label: Universal Records
Producer: Q-Tip
Notes: 3rd single from LP
Analysis: The video concept for ‘Manwomanboogie’ is simple; Q-Tip riding the subway with a bunch of strangers who he slowly begins imagining as characters from American history before everything erupts into a multi-cultural dance party. The description sounds kind of corny, but Q-Tip pulls it all off with his eternal coolness, and the funkiness of the song doesn’t hurt, either. The Renaissance was without a doubt the best hip hop album of 2008, ironically bringing a real freshness to the genre from a legendary rapper who’s been in our earphones for twenty years now. ‘Manwomanboogie’, featuring the beautiful Amanda Diva singing a quick verse, is a fun video and if you haven’t heard The Renaissance yet, you are really missing out on some quality music.
