Adrian Younge & The Delfonics Want You To ‘Stop And Look’

Have you ever watched something and afterwards sat in silence wondering what just happened? I was in no way prepared for the glory that is the music video for the Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics collaboration "Stop and Look (And You Have Found Love)." This black-and-white noir piece looks like the celluloid love child of Quentin Tarantino and Spike Lee. The video tells the tale of someone who was looking for love and "got lost on the way." The female lead is so wrapped in her neglectful significant other that she tosses aside the one who really cares. The main lesson from the song is that love will find you if you just stop and look. I appreciate the vintage, underground hip-hop flavor of the video complete with break dancing and graffiti. It reminded me of the '90's TV show New York Undercover. This venture gives The Delfonics a wonderful opportunity to make a music video, which is something they never have done in all their years. The vibe perfectly accentuates Delfonics' lead singer William Hart's soulful voice. The artistry even extends to the credits, which features the song "Lover's Melody," from the same project, and some awesome b-roll footage of an underground party. This year has been great for soul legends like Bobby Womack, Dionne Warwick and now The Delfonics. Let's hope this collaboration inspires others to dig into their rich catalogs. Also, can we please talk about Hart's amazing, bedazzled suit?
