makehersay-videoshoot-1-kid-cudiEarlier today KiD CuDi’s “Make Her Say” music video was released by Universal Music Group. It’s the rising hip-hop star’s third music video out there, with the first two being “Day ‘n’ Nite,” and its Crookers remix counterpart. When I first heard “Make Her Say” back in May, I thought it was a hilarious, novelty song. Since then, it’s definitely grown on me, and I feel like the song is blowing up.

Wale's "Chillin" feat. Lady GaGa Music Video

Wale Lady GaGa ChillinEarlier today, the hotly anticipated music video for Wale’s hit song “Chillin” feat. Lady GaGa was released. The video was directed by Grammy nominated director Chris Robinson. Overall it’s a decent, catchy song that’s definitely going to be getting some serious air time. Wale brings his A game as usual. The only weird thing is how much Lady GaGa sounds like M.I.A. It’s kind of annoying actually.
