Brittany Nacole has released a brand new music video for "Dude's Ass Was An Artist", the eighth track from her debut album "Earf Gurl".
In the video, Nacole provides floating melodies and serious storytelling skills that are accompanied by relatable visuals from APJ Films. The video walks us through the relationship between Brittany and an ex-man who did her dirty. In the first half of the video, APJ keeps their visuals relatively natural, filling the screen with organic scenes as opposed to saturating it with overused effects. One of the more striking qualities is the use of color within the production. From the clothes chosen, to background accents, and most visibly the paint covering the pair’s bodies during intimate scenes, these colors draw out significant and specific emotions and seem to be chosen purposefully. These organic and colorful elements combine to display the seemingly intense bond that was shared deeply by both people during their relationship.
As the video and song progress, a turn is taken when we see the man with another woman. Nacole takes the encounter with a relatively positive perspective despite her confusion, realizing that she did nothing wrong. We see the man’s face covered with strobed vibrant colors and layered with scenes of Brittany describing herself through her music.
The song itself and the addition of this new video do an exceptional job encompassing one of the best qualities of art: its ability to share raw truths and emotions of human experiences. In this case, it portrays one of the most painful experiences, heartbreak.
