Hurtin' Me - Stefflon Don & French Montana |

I cannot believe how far behind on my blog I am, will I ever catch up? Gosh, I need to really start focusing, but as per usual, I'm not very good at that. Anyway, I am a total of 16 days behind, which isn't something I am proud of, at all. That's 16 music video reviews I need to write up. Regardless, at the backdated time of this post, Post Malone is at number one with "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage, which doesn't have a music video; however this one was in the Top 10, and I've been wanting to review this for some time now, as it has been turning up in my recommendations. It's certainly a polished video, that's for sure. Watch Stefflon Don and French Montana bring it in this music video with her dancing and acting brilliantly for the video while he adds that special something in this music video for "Hurtin' Me".

Stefflon Don, real name Stephanie Allen, first came to all our attention, mainly, when she featured on Jax Jones' "Instruction" which also featured Demi Lovato. It certainly launched her, so it's not a surprise she's managed to keep the flames of popularity going and ride the success with a subsequent release that has become a hit in itself. It surprised me, though, to find out she's from my hometown of Birmingham, although she did move away to The Netherlands when she was four years old, and then later headed to London to study. This song is a collaboration with French Montana, real name Karim Kharbouch. He went viral with his internationally successful hit "Unforgettable" featuring Swae Lee. Therefore, it's no surprise that this song has done really well in the UK, although whether it'll go international, that'll be the question we're all wondering. This song was written by Karim Kharbouch, Rodney Kumbirayi Hwingwiri, and Stephanie Victoria.

Directed by Luke Biggins and Stefflon Don, this music video is mainly a performance piece with some dancing and acting happening throughout. It's an impassioned visual that truly shows off Stefflon Don is the best light possible!

It is certainly a beautiful scenic video, that's for sure. Both artists look incredible and exude confidence in every way. Stefflon Don is hot throughout this clip, and she definitely brings it for the dancing, which allows us to see her in a totally different light. She has really connected with this song and displays her feelings for it throughout this visual.

French Montana adds a little special flavour to the track and the video, but I feel like Stefflon Don steals the show throughout and he's part isn't really needed. Regardless this music video certainly is polished and although there isn't a full-on narrative, the subtlety serves it well.
