Trapp Tarell – Pretty on Purpose
Rap artist Trapp Tarell brings us a very entertaining video for his track “Pretty on Purpose.” Even though one can argue that it is a bit cheesy, I thoroughly enjoyed this vid. Tarell is a pretty decent rapper, and video director David Pete did a great job matching the visuals with the lyrics of the song.
The vid starts out with a woman asleep in bed. The alarm on her phone wakes her up. As she starts to get ready for the day, she hits play on Tarell’s song on her iTunes. The catchy beat starts up, and Tarell’s clever rhymes start to flow. As he raps about how women work hard to look good every day, we see the woman in the video going out jogging, where she runs in to Tarell, who asks her out on a date. I liked how the conversation is written out at the bottom of the screen so that we know what is going on without having to read lips or to have the music stop so we can hear their words. Then we see her getting ready in her bathroom– putting on make-up and trying on various outfits as Tarell’s lyrics talk about how her nails and toes are always done, and she goes on eight mile runs to keep in shape. The lyrics are cute, and the chorus is catchy– I found myself singing them to myself hours later. The end of the vid is endearing too– we see Tarell coming to his date’s door, nervous and psyching himself up to knock. Once he does finally knock, the big smile on his face as he see’s his date open the door is sweet.
Trapp Tarell has a very catchy song with “Pretty on Purpose.” It sticks in your head long after its over. The video leaves an impression also– it’s entertaining with an adorable ending. I enjoyed it, and I know that you will too!
