SWV sing about the kings in their queendom on their current single "Ain't No Man," so it only makes sense for the ladies to be surrounded by a bevy of beefcake for the song's visuals. Director Derek Blanks is behind the camera and his history as a world renown photographer to the stars serves him well as he captures Coko Clemons, Taj George and Lelee Lyons in all their gorgeous glory. Even in the midst of tasty eye candy, these ladies still manage to be the focus and not get lost in the manly sauce.
Coko, Taj and Lelee do get saucy, however, in what may be one of their most provocative music videos ever. There's no shortage of suited and booted or shirtless and oiled up men to ogle, and these Sisters With Voices have their choice of who to cozy up to. Coko has a few vying for her attention, Taj sings in a bedazzled bathing suit with one hugging her tight and Lelee spends most of the video with her legs wrapped around a very strong young man's back. There are also video actors representing a fireman, mechanic, physician and doting fathers. For a song about women celebrating their good men, this music video is a fine companion and many a woman's idea of heaven with the trio outnumbered by men by a two-to-one ratio. That works for us.
Watch the "Ain't No Man" parade of brothas and others right here, and get ready for SWV's new album, Still...SWV, to be released on November 13th.
