VIDEO: DJ Khaled ‘Take It To The Head’
Posted on May 24, 2012 by BeEasy
DJ Khaled, the guy who loves to scream ‘WE THE BEST’, delivers a a chaotic new video clip for the smash hit ‘Take It To The Head’, which features Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne.
Shot amid rushing flood waters and bursting fireballs in reference to the Earthquake-inspired theme ride at Universal Studios in Orlando over in the US, this clip seems a little over the top and orchestrated, yet it somehow works.
Since the song itself is quite smooth, I didn’t expect to see a clip with so much going on. Colin Tilley came on board to direct the video, with Tilley also being the mastermind behind Justin Bieber’s latest, ‘Boyfriend’, as well as Breezy’s ‘Look At Me Now’ and Wiz Khalifa’s ‘No Sleep’ just to name a few.
The visual also includes cameos from Drizzy Drake, Busta Rhymes and Birdman in what is Khaled’s first attempt at following up his massive single ‘I’m On One’.
A few images that stood out from the video include a caged Chris Brown in the middle of the disaster zone, rattling against the bars and screaming, almost coming across as a crazed lunatic and not to be fucked with. That follows up with Nicki Minaj, complete with a blonde wig and green tutu, spitting her verse sitting on the subway with fireballs exploding all around her.
I must say it was refreshing to hear Nicki get back to the racy lyrics that made me fall in love with her in the first place, rather than some of the pop work she’s put out in recent times.
So there you have it peeps. DJ Khaled brings us a blockbuster-type clip for a blockbuster hit, even though I’m still a tad confused on how the song relates to the video. But who cares? It’s got a bunch of the hottest MC’s in the game right now, and there’s explosions and stuff.
Check out the new video and see for yourself.
