Periscope (feat. Skylar Grey) - Papa Roach |

Have you heard Papa Roach's new album, "Crooked Teeth", yet? I am obsessed with it. After their single "Help", I was expecting a hard rock album much like they've previously released, but that was definitely a transitional single as songs like this one dominate the album and really proves how amazing Papa Roach are. There are a lot of awesome songs on the album, and this is definitely one of them. Watch Papa Roach perform alongside the very sexy Skylar Grey as they unleash emotional vibes in the music video for "Periscope".

Papa Roach are a four-piece rock band consisting of Jacoby Shaddix, Jerry Horton, Tobin Esperance, and Tony Palermo. They have changed their style a number of times but have managed to stay true to themselves throughout, which definitely makes them an incredible band. It might come as a surprise to many to see them collaborating with Skylar Grey, but they also have a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly on their latest album; many rock bands are infusing rap with their music, it's worked for some and it hasn't worked for others. Papa Roach shows everyone else how to do it with their latest album, that's for sure. Rock music is evolving, it has to so that it can stay mainstream and popular. Papa Roach has continued to prove they're a force to be reckoned with in rock, and it's so great to see that they are continuing to prove they are on top of their game. As for Skylar Grey, real name Holly Hafermann, has been jumping in and out of popular music, she's still on the rise with a few hits here and there but nothing iconically her just yet, although many do identify her collaboration with Diddy-Dirty Money, titled "Coming Home", as her signature song, but I reckon she'll have a big solo hit song, with that voice, for sure. This collaboration completely works, and this song becomes more and more special the more we all hear it.

The music video is a pure performance profile piece, which is certainly something new when it comes to Papa Roach. Skylar Grey stuns throughout in her sex-appeal outfit which many have said doesn't relate to the song.

First off I love the watery images, and the streamed window look over the camera really gives off the submarine vibe, which easily relates since a periscope is something submarines use - if you didn't know.

Skylar Grey looks magnificent and exudes sex in every way. She's completely hot, and I actually like that she looks this way to bring in more people because sex certainly sells.

Overall, I like the concept of the music video and the exact theme from the title of the song; however, it doesn't relate well enough to the song and there isn't much of an explanation. I'm sad that the other band members of Papa Roach aren't playing their instruments, and I feel that the video only manages to portray Jacoby Shaddix and Skylar Grey's stage presence, which isn't something we want to get out of the visual.
