Christina Milian - Dip It Low

07 January Critic Jonni 0 Comments



Okay, someone please tell me what I have just watched? This is quite embarrassing, I didn't even realise they had switched Christina Milian into this sexed up woman. This is someone I've always remembered as being sweet and innocent in "Am To Pm". This isn't even done good, although it is the switch we've seen plenty of times, Britney Spears, Chritina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, to name a few, yet their switch videos aren't this badly done. Christina Milian attempts to sex up her music videos in this extremely sexualised song, that has a long suing story to go with it.

Christina Milian has ventured into other markets such as acting, releasing her own set of wines, setting up her own company, and releasing her own clothing range. She recently returned to music with an EP. She needs a hit that will chart globally, her vocals are stunning, yet she can't be done with music and have this as her biggest hit. Dip It Low was written by Poli Paul, Teedra Moses and John Jackson. Although very catchy, it samples a track called "La Sirena" by Thomas Turino, Larry Crook and Dan Dickey, which put Christina Milian in the middle of one chaotic law suit. It seems everyone sued everyone over this single.

The music video was directed by Matthew Rolston. I totally understand that Christina Milian wanted to sex up her image, she didn't want to be seen as the sweet and innocent "Am To Pm" girl. Yet what this is, is not what should've been. This is just too much.

However, let's start off with the good points... Although I'm not impressed by the sequences, the choreography is performed to perfection, this girl can dance, and boy does she prove it!

That is all the good points I can draw from this though. Kim Kardashian makes her debut in a music video, by being an extra. I didn't even see her during the second watch of this video. A claim to fame for anyone in that video, right?

Anyhow, the black sticky tar / black paint made this video so bad, I hate how she is spun by guys, it's so suggestive of the music industry and how people are being controlled, even though she wanted to sex up her image.

As for the performance side of things, Christina Milian does her best to perform. She shows her sultry sexy side, and yet doesn't really get into the role. She looks uncomfortable and unsure of herself.

Overall, a video I do not want to watch again, but a song that is on my iTunes and does get randomly played now and again, and one I love hearing again and again. However her new songs are so much better, and I hope she releases more in the future. I am hoping for a chart hit in the near future, so she can leave this awful music video behind her. However, kudos for making the video relate to the song, at least, but I don't get the lights on her towards the end of the video when she is dancing, is she some sort of hologram?
