“GOD BLESS AMERIKA” Lil Wayne
It’s been eight years since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast and many parishes in New Orleans. Lil Wayne returns to his hometown, Hollygrove, and views the abandoned and damaged homes that still dominate this Louisiana town. Scenes of hundreds of residents are mixed with police in riot gear ready for action. The slow tempo and the use of the American flag as a backdrop heightens the dramatic feel of the clip. Unfortunately, Lil Wayne still has product placements for his clothing line and Birdman’s vodka brand, both of which lessen the impact of his message here.
“HOY TENGO GANAS DE TI” ALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ with CHRISTINA AGUILERA
Pure romance, a sultry and sensual new Latin video debuted this week. “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” translates to “Today I Have Wanted You” and it’s a return to Christina Aguilera singing in Spanish. The song is the lead single from Alejandro Fernandez’ new CD and also the theme song to the Spanish soap opera (telenovela) “La Tempestad”. Christina recently turned 32 and looks great in the new video and her Spanish sounds more polished and authentic on this new collaboration.
