Jay Arre– “State of Mind”
Rapper Jay Arre is bringing us a solid track with “State of Mind” ft. Steve Frazier. The accompanying vid is pretty good too. Both the song and the visuals are entertaining– although it’s not jump out of your seat material, it is apparent that Jay Arre is a talented musician.
The vid was alright, with just enough going on to keep your attention. We see Jay Arre and his crew shooting hoops out on the basketball court at the park, and scenes of guest singer Frazier singing in the studio. The only misstep is the scenes with a woman doing some type of interpretative dancing, wearing heavy black make-up around her eyes. It just seemed out of place. I enjoyed the music too. Jay Arre possesses good rap skills, and his proficient lyrics are complemented by a good beat. Frazier’s vocals are on point and add some excitement and flair to the record.
I thought Arre did a good job with this one. The song was on point, and the visuals kept my attention. The only thing I didn’t really enjoy, as much were the scenes with the dancing woman. It was just a tad too weird for me, and really didn’t seem to serve a purpose in the vid as a whole. Am I overreacting about the dancing woman? What do you think?
