Seeing And ‘Hearin” Angie Stone

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that there's been very little promo for Angie Stone's new album Unexpected for it to be dropping on Tuesday. Lo and behold a video popped up for the lead single, "I Ain't Hearin' U," mere days later. That's the good news. The bad news is that there's not much to see here. Don't get me wrong, I loves me some Angie Stone, but this video feels like I've seen it already--a few hundred times--with slight variations. Here we have Angie and her man out for a night of clubbing surrounded by people who are dancing way too hard. Everything is all good until Lovita Alize Jenkins rolls up on her man and her friends who are way too old grown to be in her business start salt shaking. But Angie is all "talk to the hand" and eventually straightens things out without even chipping a nail. Although this video ultimately left me unfulfilled, Angie looks great and I'm totally coveting her disco ball bracelet.

  1. I love Angie Stone, but that song is kind of boring. Then again, my favorite songs from her were never the ones that made it to the radio, so I'm sure there is some amazing music in her new cd. I will definitely check it out.
    She looks great in the video too.

  2. Angie Stone is defeinitely underated. This is not the depth of some of her past songs, but if it gets her some radio rotation, then good for her!

  3. there are so many things wrong with this video I don't know where to start....Ok I do but.... the Chaka Khan wardrobe aint hitting, the perm aint hitting, Angie go back to the afro ma and to top it off the song is wacker then wack. Stick to the formula that got you in the game, if it's about getting your paper, the majority of acts make their money touring. So Angie fire up the tour bus babygirl and keep things moving. Not feeling this joint at all.

  4. Butta! Some forty-flavored people go to the club too!!! Somebody gots to keep the grown in grown and sexy.
