For Me - Krept & Konan |

Something new for my New Release music video review, today, only because I'm so far behind on my blogs that I haven't got a clue what was officially released on 29 September, and this was the only one I could find and come up with. If I truly want to catch up, I'm not going to waste my time trying to find something else, so this is going have to do. To be fair, it's pretty all right, just not my sort of thing, and never has been. Krept & Konan, however, have managed to impress me with this song and their part of the visual. I kind of expected the obvious when it started, but they managed to turn it around and turn it out, and the song is pretty decent too. Watch Krept & Konan reveal how much they like their girls to go low as they parade scantily-clad girls that they want to get with, in this music video for their song "For Me".

Krept & Konan are a rap and hip-hop duo consisting of Casyo "Krept" Johnson and Karl "Konan" Wilson. They've had phenomenal success in the UK, with their debut album managing to hit number two on the UK Albums Chart. The album was preceded by their massive anthem titled "Freak Of The Week" featuring Jeremih, which charted at number nine on the UK Singles Chart. They continue to show how popular they are as their recent singles have been charting as they gear up to release two mixtapes titled 7 Days and 7 Nights. This song was written by Casyo Johnson, Karl Wilson, Eyobed Getachew, and Alastair O'Donnell.

The music video was directed by KLVDR. It is a pure performance piece with some scenes showing a potential narrative that doesn't come into play.

This duo are singing this song to the women that are being showcased in the visual. The women are there to bring the sex appeal to the music video, but I feel like it is way too much. However, if you truly look at the lyrics of the song, there could be so much worse imagery that could be displayed. It's not possible to turn this song into an exact translation music video because these lyrics are really explicit with the meaning behind the song even more so.

As the video progresses, Krept & Konan step up their game and really take the spotlight in this video, proving that they can fully give their all for the visual. They are distracted at times, although we can't really blame them, as the video gets closer to the end we focus more on the women's beautiful faces.

Overall, this could have been so much better. It's quite a forgettable music video with the song being undeniably catchy, although I don't really approve of the lyrics - each to their own. I've been battling with the decision of rating this; on one-half Krept & Konan bring it during the performance side of the video, but the profile scenes of the women are too over the top for me.
