Will.i.am’s latest music video for “Feelin’ Myself” dropped yesterday. It brings viewers a mixed group of featured artists like Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, and the most talked about female artist right now – Miley Cyrus.
“Feelin’ Myself” is actually pretty self explanatory. Put a bunch of artists in a song that discusses the deep nature of narcissim. Lines like “Look up in the mirror, the mirror look at me, the mirror be like baby you the shit god dammit, you the shit, you the shit, you the shit god dammit”. Superb lyricism! Viewers also catch Miley continuing to test the waters of the rap game by spitting a few lines herself.
Alright, so this isn’t a song that’s going to change the world and quite frankly, songs that reach that level pretty much don’t exist anymore. There are no musicians out here trying to get on the level of moving music à la Michael Jackson or John Lennon so we’ve been left with really good to semi-hot beats, hooks, and artists in general but hey, who am I to turn this down? After all, it makes for a fun club hit and it’s not like people give a shit about substance anymore anyway.
Oh yeah, enjoy the music video below!
