Music Video: B.o.B., Lonely People

Filed under: Download, Hip Hop, Music Video — Tags: , — Greg @ 9:15 pm


Song: Lonely People
Artist: B.o.B.
Album: Who the Fuck is B.o.B.? (mixtape)
Label: Grand Hustle / Atlantic Records
Producer: B.o.B. & Jim Jonsin
Notes: none
Analysis: Odd that this video is released so soon after ‘I’ll Be in the Sky’, seeing as this song isn’t even going to be on B.o.B.’s debut record (clearing a Beatles sample is rather difficult). However, it is obviously a very low-cost video, so B.o.B. probably just figured what the hell. I may be looking too far into the video, but I think he is drawing parallels between these club-goers and the “lonely people”, aka people living somewhat empty lives, because booty shakin’ and throwing money doesn’t really seem like his style. Regardless, with help from Jim Jonsin, the ‘Eleanore Rigby’ sample is done well, and much better than when Ja Rule trashed it last year. I wonder if Paul & Ringo have checked out this video yet?
