The summer is in full effect. We are at the end of June and we still got 2 strong months of that Texas heat waiting for all of us around here. Staying cool and comfortable in this environment is the everyday goal. Fellas start rocking the tank tops and shorts as well as the ladies wearing skirts, dresses, and doing whatever it takes to keep cool and relaxed. One of those strategies for women to stay cool comes with the resembling of a “pineapple” when they put their hair up. This look has many uses as it can be for going out, staying relaxed, or cooling down. In Sam Lao‘s new video, “Pineapple“, we get a much deeper meaning into what this style entails as well as the many different interpretations men get from this look. What I really like about the song and video is that it’s very bright and fun while speaking out on the unwarranted cat calls and attempts guys make towards women. Guys, we got to do better with the thirst situations and thinking we are god’s gift to women. It just doesn’t work like that, but I digress. Alright I’m off the soapbox and back to the video. The visual itself is out the park and matches the energy of this super dope track. A lot of bright colors and movement in here. One of the best videos of 2016 I’ve seen. I’ve been a fan of Sam Lao from the jump. Done reviews on whatever she puts out and I’ll continue to say what I said when I first heard her music, she’s a star. The live show is absolutely on point and all of her music is infectious. All of the visuals have been right and her latest EP SPCTRM has been doing well. Be sure to follow her on social media and peep the video below. Let us know what you think, cheers!
