WINDOW SEAT

Premiere date: March 27, 2010.
Shot in Dallas on the St. Patrick's Day (March 17, 2010) in Dallas at the Dealey Plaza, the place where JFK was assassinated in November 1963. The video’s fuzzy, slowed-down cinematography directly references the Zapruder film of that event. Badu walks down Elm Street while stripping her clothes off one piece at a time - until she's fully nude. At the song’s end Erykah’s bare stroll is cut short by a sudden gunshot that appears to kill her instantly. Streaks of blue "blood" then spill from her head as she lays in the street, spelling the word "groupthink." The video was shot guerilla style, in one take and was inspired by the "naked" video made by Matt and Kim. Badu said the video was intended to launch a discussion of "groupthink."

THE LIGHT

If there is a more perfect face, one more worth contemplating and exalting, than Erykah Badu's, I haven't seen it. And so, it makes splendid sense that Common's luscious, luminous video for "The Light" makes artful use — and art — of Erykah Badu and his overwhelming admiration for her. Not to mention her toes fresh out the shower, her arms, her lips, and all-seeing eyes. Framed as a letter to Badu, his very own lady-love, and sampling from Bobby Caldwell's sweet "Open Your Eyes," "The Light" is a charming, tender, and undeniably soulful declaration of affection and respect. Read the whole video review by Cynthia Fuchs.
