Seriously, I don’t know how this video will go over with Ray Ray’s core audience of black women. And I’m at a loss as to why he’s made such an obvious choice to highlight white women to the exclusion of the sisters. Because there is just nothing casual or incidental about this video.
Is he making a point about the era? Is it meant to be ironic?
I honestly cannot tell. The video is played so straight that if there is a point to be made I think its pretty muddled.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a video where a brother is romancing a white girl or serenading a white girl exclusively. There is always a sister around too. This is radical stuff.
What it means, I’m still not sure.
That said, I’m loving his new music and can’t wait for the album to drop in 2 weeks.
