Young Jeezy Doesn’t Melt In The Summer Sun

Aug 28th, 2008 // Comment

Sadly, the tableau of babes and bottles in the video for Young Jeezy’s “Vacation” ends badly for the Snowman, with the final shot of the clip’s “conceptual” side showing him being strong-armed out of a club by FBI agents. But mostly I’m impressed by how this video brings together the time-honored concepts of “scantily clad ladies on a beach” and “scantily clad ladies in a club” in a way that actually makes sense when put together with the track’s lyrics–or, at least, the lyrics that weren’t bleeped out in favor of letting the crisp piano hook shine through. We don’t see unified vision like this often enough in pop music, and for that, I say, God bless. [YouTube]
