Maybe I should have included a disclaimer, but as long as your tears didn’t cause electrocution… You should totally be fine.
Mark my words people, if this video doesn’t win some type of award for Best Video In the Galaxy (see what I did there?) or Created By Musical Geniuses or something of colossal importance, I shall make it my mission that #TeamBreezy causes an upset somewhere. I mean, we Breezys have to stick together, yeah?
Again, the haters and closed-minded people of the world must do the most when it comes to Chris, and completely ignore the message. As much as I dislike certain basketball players (of which some of you may be aware of, if you’ve followed previous posts) I still recognize good game. Not only is the song beautiful, but the video has one of the most amazing messages ever. Some viewers also seem to be confused on the point of the “girl” in the video. While I’m not in Chris’ head or on his team, I believe the two dimensions of the video run parallel to each other. Just like he sacrificed his life in the literal sense, which resulted in the “suicide mission” referred to by the main actress, the character in the video/song had to sacrifice himself as well by revealing his past to his current significant other. Get it?
While most people in relationships aren’t always honest when disclosing their past, sometimes it can be very destructive to the relationship and the person revealing that past. Why? Because the other person is, what? Judging them. (See what Chris did there?) However, once the truth is told in its entirety, the two can move in the relationship with no secrets which in my opinion, is beautiful. Hence: “It could get ugly, before it gets beautiful.” Aaahhh. exactly. While Chris’ literal and metaphorical death in the video was ugly, the planet was then at peace from the monsters (in space) and the safety net, peace, and closure that resulted from that death, then became beautiful. You may have seen the red and destruction in the sky toward the beginning of the video, which is important because most look to the moon, sun or skies for hope. Everything was a sacrifice but from the beginning, Chris knew what he had to do.
Juxtaposition my friends. Look it up!
So whether or not the concept of the song and video were personal to Chris and reflected on real life issues that the public has seen, it doesn’t change the fact that everyone goes through this!! Anyone and everyone could learn something from this. So please, stop hating and just embrace the art… Which is why you should be listening to the song and/or watching the video in the first place! Yeah?
Beautiful, amazing job Chris (@chrisbrown) and Colin (@ColinTilley)! #TeamBreezy, you should be proud.
