"Control Myself" Video...

Yesterday I saw LL Cool J's new video for his song "Control Myself" that features Jennifer Lopez. I like the video, both Jennifer and LL Cool J look great in the video, and the overall appearance of the video is really nice. Now with that said, Hype Williams needs a new video style. When I first saw the split screen shot it was cool but now we are in overload. Slim Thug, Jamie Foxx, Beyonce, Ne-Yo, Jeezy... I mean seriously, back to back. All of these videos are starting to look the same. But this video is hot and Jennifer Lopez looks fly in it.
Click the picture to see the video.

I completely agree. Hype needs a new style. The first time I saw him use this style was for Robin Thicke's video, which imo is the best one he's done so far. I'll check this one out and see what I think about it.

I AGREE ALSO! HYPE WILLIAMS HALF A SCREEN VIDEO STYLE IS SO WACK AND PLAYED OUT! PERSONALLY I NEVER LIKED IT FROM THE JUMP! HE NEVER HAS ANY REAL TREATMENTS FOR HIS VIDEO JUST VISUAL EFFECTS! BENNY AND MR.X HAS DEFINATELY SURPASSED WHAT HE IS DOING NOW! ANYWAY, THE VIDEO AND THE SONG IS HOT! J-LO IS ROCKING SOME NICE ASS CLOTHES AS ALWAYS! AND JERMAINE DUPRI? SOMEBODY GIVE THAT MAN HIS PROPS, HE IS DOING WITH ALL THESE BACK TO BACK HITS! I HOPE HE CAN RESURRECT MY GIRL JANET WITH HER NEXT CD!!!
PEACE
HAPPY V-DAY

I have to admit that when I first heard the song on this site I hated it--but I heard it in the car the other day and it's definitely growing on me...haven't seen the video yet but I just KNOW LL will be looking good...

i thought the same thing when i saw the video, c'mon hype how many times are we gonna do this? the first time was nice (peeped the whole City of God influence) but to make it your 'new thing' please hype, stop yourself!!!

The video is okay but the song is hot to me...the video would have been better if they would have shown J Lo doing more of what she does the best and that's dancing. But that beat is straight fiyah....looking for a perfect beat was the song back in the day!!!

hahaha omg i must agree, because of the style i almost did not even watch the video but i realized it was still good. Also because of that style i dont even watch jeezy, ne-yo, and slim thug video. I hate it its so annoying now lol. But i love this song, it grew on me once it first came out on radio and no one knew about it. :) keep working hard on this site girl, i love it :)

I disagree with all of you. I like Hype's new direction. I think it's new and innovating. All videos look the same and I thing it's something new and inviting. Also I like the song. It reminds me of "Going back to Cali".

Give Hype Williams a little more credit everybody. it's a great concept to have B footage in the widescreen bars instead of BORING black. i mean black is cool but video is much more eye popping which is what is trying to be conveyed in his videos. He's always been about catching your eye. He'll do something new and innovating when hes done with this style and then people will copy him cause hes a trendsetter.

LEAVE HYPE ALONE! YA'LL COULD NEVER EVEN DO WHAT HE DOES. NOT EVEN CLOSE. I SEE YA'LL COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMEONE TRYNA MAKE RAP VIDEOS MORE ARTISTIC BUT WHERE ARE YOUR COMPLAINTS WHEN IGNORANCE AND SHUCKING AND JIVIN' "LEAN WITH IT ROCK WITH IT" VIDEO OFFERS NOTHING TO VIEWERS NOT EVEN TWO SECONDS WHERE YOU ARE THINKING DAMN THIS DIRECTOR IS CREATIVE . I HAVE NEVER SEEN LIL X OR BENNY BOOM SHOOT ANYTHING CLOSE TO "GOLD DIGGER", "SO SICK" OR KANYE'S "DIAMONDS". SO STOP BEING HATERS. SHUT THE HELL UP AND PICK UP A BOOK OR GO TO COLLEGE DAMN IT.THANKS
