Chris Brown has been grinding hard with his new album, ‘F.A.M.E’. The next single, ‘Next 2 You’ featuring Justin Bieber, premiered recently.
Set during the apocalypse, the Collin Tilley-clip begins with the two heartthrobs caressing their loved ones, before Justin’s girlfriend’s father fetches her, commanding that the two shall never see eye-to-eye again. Not to long after that, Chris rushes to the window, only to experience a car exploding and face terror that lurks outside in the form of an apocalypse.
The sky begins to darken, buildings start to crumble to the ground and people start running for their lives. It’s not long before Chris runs outside and hunts his girl down, however failing to stop what would happen next; Justin’s girlfriend’s dad knocks into her, leaving her immobilized and unable to escape death. Time stops for a heart-throbbing moment before Chris decides to jump to the other side of the ground to save her, leading to his ultimate demise. We see a few African-like dance moves done by Chris and some Sangomas after this scene and discover that Justin rekindles with his girl, before the video ends.
The video was a great watch and definitely backed up by a big budget, since the label obviously knows that this song will be a huge hit. However, it was a little over-the-top with the storyline but I understood what Collin was trying to accomplish. I just can’t help but think about Britney Spears’ ‘Till The World Ends’ video, only her video was much better and brought the song to life, resulting in me constantly playing the song and becoming one of my most-played songs ever, and also causing a resurgence in sales.
