Gilme has returned after a long hiatus with “Success (Don’t Kill My Vibe).”
After the teaser video was released yesterday we did not have to wait long for the music video release from Gilme. It begins just like the teaser ended. We hear the melodic piano notes and my first thought was “Really a ballad as a return?” But at around the 24-second mark it completely changes. Out goes the piano in comes the brass section and bass.
For a somewhat fledgling rap community in Korea they certainly have a surplus of excellent rappers and Gilme is totally among the best. The song is about freedom and being who you want to be. Or in Gilme’s case – make the music you want to make.
The music video I could really do without. It is ok but not great. It is some shots of Gilme being hypnotized by the worlds worst Psychologist or standing in the strangest recording studio. I think perhaps the thing that made a mess of the music video was the prodigious use of colored filters for the lights. I did not see a pattern to them.
But then we take another turn and the tempo of the song changes at around the 3-minute mark. Suddenly I went from a rap video to the opening credit of a 1980 action movie. Then the song just ends.
I did like the song enough. I just dislike the music video and the last 50 seconds of the song. So did I add this to my play list? Yes, just not my everyday playlist and I have a couple of friends I have shared this song with. But what did you think? Leave your comments below.
