Lil Kims Nasty One Video Will Leave You Breathless

first_imgThe queen asks, “Will you do it for the nastiest one?” If you love to dance, it could be hard to resistPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Aug 2, 2018 – 4:20 pm Lil’ Kim has released the video for her single “Nasty One” off her first album in 10 years and it’s here to show us that the queen is certainly back.While the single was released on her birthday, July 11, its official video was released on Aug. 1. The visuals take on all comers while keeping to the song’s pro-monogamy message. Sonically hypnotic and convincing, the video’s luxury blends a marble angel, friends and a Ferrari into combinations of wishes and thoughts that move seamlessly into her bedroom.”The single instantly reminds me of when I used to go to the underground clubs as a teenager,” she told Complex. “I naturally wanted the video to reflect that with the super sexy Caribbean vibe, vivid colors and the dancing. When my fans watch the video, I want them to ultimately jump up and groove with it.” https://twitter.com/LilKim/status/1024721447942537218 Twitter Facebook Email Lil’ Kim’s “Nasty One” Video Will Leave You Breathless Lil’ Kim Takes Over In “Nasty One” Video lil-kims-nasty-one-video-will-leave-you-breathless News The song’s lyric “Kimmy got that mouth that’ll leave ’em breathless” is no empty boast. She reminds us she’s nasty with her verses, but her raps are not the only star in the track’s constellation of music, meanings and regal confidence in her inner powers. Her chorus makes the point that she is the “nastiest one,” able to express insecurity and doubt in her struggles while celebrating that “I’m a freak but only with my boo.”What Lil’ Kim is trying to do is challenging and she makes it seem truly natural, pushing aside the context of her comeback and flashbacks to her GRAMMY-winning sexuality in “Lady Marmalade.” Her question “Will you do it?” is posed to fans whose memories feel fresh as well as new listeners.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

A philosophical view of nature on canvas

first_imgDiamond Soul, a painting exhibition by Yogendra Sethi is being organised in the Capital that begins on 1 October. The paintings are a vivid and fertile presentation of nature over the canvases where strength of mountains and brilliancy of diamonds are visible. The acrylic on canvas, which has always been Sethi’s favourite medium, ostensibly reflects his personal love of nature and a deep sense of spirituality.The current collection Diamond Soul brings his core philosophy and spirituality to the surface. Each painting depicts his mastery over his skills – that of positive feelings, philosopher, spiritual guru and an artist. The artist in him seems to assuage the hardness of diamonds with his subtle exploits on the canvas, depicting the exhibits of nature. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Yogendra, who hails from Indore, is an acclaimed jewel designer. His fascination for painting started at an early age. After obtaining a master’s degree in fine arts in 1973 from Indore School of Fine arts he went to Berkeley, California for an MBA. His landscapes too moved from traditional to contemporary and conceptual as he explored the vast expanse of nature in California, USA.Later as he worked with colour gems and observed their qualities closely, an idea took seed from which was born a new form of art – very unique and thought provoking. Nature that he had loved to paint throughout his life, had taken on a new form of life in his paintings. The strokes, the lines, the colours were that of a mountain, rock or nature, but at the same time resembled human figure or a group of people – all dynamic, and active. Art pieces from his collection have been exhibited at art galleries across the world.When: 1 – 7 October Where: Visual Art Gallery, India Habitat Centrelast_img read more
