Robin Givens Is Love Interest In New Music Video, U Won’t BELIEVE Who!
We were just sent a new music video for a new R&B single that has just hit the scene this month. The love interest in the video is played by actress Robin Givens, who is probably equally as known for her acting, as she is for her rocky marriage to Mike Tyson. It seemed a little odd to see her on his video, but all in all, it’s good to see both she and this old school artist back on the scene.
We won’t hold you in suspense any longer, the Old School artist in question is the former original lead singer of the 70’s group, The Village People, a.k.a the “Y.M.C.A.” singers, Victor Willis. Remember the cat who was the policeman in the group? You can probably hear his voice in your head now, sing it with me family: “It’s fun to stay at the YMCA! It’s fun stay at the YMCA-ay!”
Victor’s been off the music scene for many years now and after battling drug addiction and past legal problems, he is back on his grind as and things are really looking up for him now. He even has a biopic movie in the works with the Lifetime Channel, and he’s just revealed that in the movie he will expose which of his former Village People members were actually lip-synching on there records.
Anyways, like I said earlier, it was a pleasant surprise seeing both Victor and Robin back in the game again. Robin’s kind of been out of the loop for a minute and Victor…well, that’s a whole ‘notha story. He has had his fair share of struggles throughout the years, but with his new single it seems as though he has his game face on now, so I’m happy for the brotha.
I have to admit that when I first got wind of his new single, I was like ‘Please don’t let Victor sound crazy on this one.’ It wasn’t that I didn’t think he had talent back in the day…he was a great singer and songwriter, who penned one of the most memorable hit songs of the disco era, “YMCA,” but it was just that I wasn’t sure if he’d gotten rusty since his absence from the music game had been so long. To my relief, Victor is representing the Old School era pretty well in his new single, “Follow Through.” It’s not that it’s the greatest song in the world, but it has a lot of 70’s elements in the background vocals and his style of singing that can really take us Old Schoolers back to the days when life was simple, music was good, when love songs still existed and radio was diverse. Check out Victor and Robin in his new video and tell us what you think…
