Drake – Over (Music Video)

Posted by Just10 on April 12, 2010

Many great musicians and artists have a difficult time combining the powerful lyrics they write with powerful visuals. This is what made Michael Jackson the iconic and amazing figure he was and will continue to be. This is the quality that makes Kanye West’s concerts so amazing and breathtaking. This is where Drake’s troubles have been to start his music career. Amazing music but only two music videos deep and everyone is critiquing his artistic decisions.

Now the official video from his first single for his first official album has just released. I have yet to hear any opinions on the video but I am very sure there will be mixed emotions about it. I enjoyed the video because it really shows the internal conflicts that a huge artist might have while starting their career. The visuals of car lights and faceless people surrounding Drake while a woman walks away from his life give some indications as to what the young man might go through. However, I would have liked to see a little less of Drake’s face and more visuals or maybe even footage from live performances to give the viewer a more realistic view of the rapper’s life.

Whether you like the video or not, Drake is a 22-year-old young man with tons of talent but plenty of learning left. Soon he will know all the in’s and out’s of the entertainment industry and be able to give every fan exactly what they want!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
