Interpreting popular music videos

At this ungodly hour featuring crazy heat, this task is keeping me distracted.

 

BODAK YELLOW – CARDI B

A woman raps fiercely using slangs as though they are very typical in hip hop music. She flaunts her designer shoes, accessories, exotic cars, and even poses beside a tied leopard.  She is overwhelmed with her success and that's why finds it necessary to rap about it. People have been commenting crazy stuff in the comments section. For example, “This song makes me want to fight the water in the shower”.

 

GUCCI GANG – LIL PUMP

The singer is chanting some words indistinctively and repeatedly. It is like an endless loop created by the same words and tone. The guy has multi coloured twizzlers for hair. He is wildly partying with his friends, and doing questionable things in a school out of all places. Parental guidance is required to watch this video. And if you want to annoy your friends, you know what to send.

 

LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO – TAYLOR SWIFT

A woman comes out of her grave and begins singing angrily as soon as she does it. She relaxes in a bathtub filled with jewels. She sits on a throne and is served tea by the snakes surrounding her. Later on, she crashes her gold clad car that only one can dream of buying. Right after the crash, she even manages to pose for a photograph, unscathed. All I can take away is this person needs a better medium to sort out her issues.

 

IT'S EVERYDAY BRO (REMIX) — JAKE PAUL [FEAT. GUCCI MANE]

This video has more dislikes than likes and rightfully so. A man child is throwing shade at another popular YouTuber alongside bragging about his achievements. He doesn't know how to make proper music and despite that, nothing is stopping him. If this isn't inspiration, I don't know what is. The other singers who decided to join the video only kept on making the video trashier. Here is a little general knowledge kids, England is not a city.

 

HOTLINE BLING – DRAKE

No, the guy is not possessed by a ghost. He is singing about a phone ringing and dancing to his heart's content in what seems like an empty art gallery. Now, thanks to those dance moves, we have witnessed the emergence of a plethora of good memes.

 

DRAG ME DOWN – ONE DIRECTION

A group of boys are very excited about their journey to the moon. So they are singing, dancing, and running around like there is no tomorrow. This inspirational video shows us how four boys are going to the moon and why you shouldn't ditch your friends because if you do so, you won't be going to the moon.

 

SWEATSHIRT – JACOB SARTORIUS

One 13-year-old love-struck schoolboy is having trouble managing his sweatshirt during his math class. It just comes out of his bag and keeps on running. It is like that pet animal that does not like you despite how hard you try. After catching the fleeing sweatshirt, he offers it to the girl he likes. She is impressed as the considerate boy gives her his sweatshirt to wear in this cold weather. This video sets a very bad example for kids. You shouldn't focus on someone you like during math class, because you'll fail. However, it teaches us that you should always offer someone something warm during winter.
