With all that being said, I am going to review “Right Now” from Amber. This is her fourth music video from Rogue Rouge and I’m stoked because each video has been its own thing. No two videos have been alike and not one of her videos looked like it was rushed or given less attention than any other. Amber is a brilliant mind and with brilliant minds comes attention to details. She definitely gives that when working with music and videos.
I liked the fact that the entire music video was black and white. It gives a sort of reminiscing feeling. The simple filter creates a sort of filter on what we think we understand about what’s going on. Almost like looking back on something, the filter makes us believe that this is a past event. They have already broken up. While it convinces us that it is in the past, we feel like we are there with this couple in the moments of separation.
Along with the black and white, there was a cool set of sequences where Amber and Gen Neo were shown on screen. The illusion they created was a montage of all the moments in this relationship. This was done by flashing between moments and that bridge between all these moments which was the double exposure moments of Amber and Gen Neo. There was one particular moment that was especially neat which was when Gen Neo became silhouetted and turned into Amber. It’s an easy trick but it was effective here.
Like I said, this song was good, but it was too familiar. However, the reason it was better was because the R&B scene was overly emotional with the lyrics and with their singing voice. Amber and Gen Neo work well together though. Their voices compliment each other. Amber is a very emotional singer, but it wasn’t overdone.
Finally, the lyrics, even though I didn’t grasp everything that was being said, were mainly about trying to resolve an issue in a relationship. Amber sings about needing this other person right now. It is stereotypical but like I said before, it was well done. Not overdone. The relationship was falling apart. Amber seems to notice that, but wants to resolve it before it ends.
What did you think of Amber’s fourth music video release “Right Now”? Which video was your favorite? For me personally, I liked “High Hopes” because of the smoke scenes. I honestly love smoke scenes so much. Let me know which was your favorite Amber music video. Thank you so much for the support but also please go give Amber some love as well. I appreciate all you do for me and I wouldn’t be where I am without you all. Thank you so much. I’ll see you in my next review.
