Just when we thought music videos released this week couldn’t get any more saccharin than Colbie Caillat’s “I Never Told You,” along comes the one for Iyaz’s latest single “Solo”—i.e. that pop jam containing the sample of Janet Jackson’s “Again” that you’ve been hearing incessantly on the radio. Ready to watch a little puppy-lovin’ in the Virgin Islands? Then hop below.
Cute. But can someone please enact a new law stating that, from this day forward, no J.R. Rotem-produced song (or any song for that matter) is to contain that obnoxious horn/”J-J-J-J-J-J.R!!!!!” at the beginning, middle or end of it?
Pretty please? We’ll gladly take a hundred more “Darkchild!” tunes in exchange.
Anyway, the video was shot in Iyaz’s hometown of Tortola in the Virgin Islands. This week “Solo” climbed up to #42 on the Billboard Hot 100.
