Here I was thinking Usher’s new video for “Scream” would feature tons of ladies screaming their heads off in intense pleasure but alas, relying on the most literal approach when envisioning music videos isn’t always the best way to go (unless you’re Jessie J and the video is “Laserlight” or Maroon 5 and the video is “Payphone“).
Anyway, Usher’s new video does feature a few screaming fans at the end of the video (he’s basically orchestrating their cheers) but mostly it features shots of him running, dancing in a white suit and getting saucy with a sultry lady.
The BBGun-directed video also features footage from his off-broadway show Fuerza Bruta, performed this past April. The footage taken from the show includes a female cast member floating above him, suspended in a watery bubble.
Watch it here:
Jessie J’s new video for “Laserlight”
creatively appropriately features a lot of lasers and lights. The video’s plot is pretty non-existant, but we can’t blame her for staring in the mirror at her glitzy accessories. Throughout much of the video she wears gigantic gold hoops that makes me recall the 90s and a spiked leather jacket (drool).
This is the third single from her Who You Are album and her second collaboration with David Guetta. Though Guetta isn’t in the video, Jessie happily soaks up the strobe lights enough to make us want to dance.
