Hey boys! Can you hear us ladies?! Jessie J and Beyonce are two fabulous female artists who give guys a shout-out in their music (and a feisty shout-outs at that). Sometimes the lyrics are ferocious, and other times they’re simply controversial (give a good listen and you’ll know when you blush). But whichever way you want to spin it, the songs are unbelievably addictive. Do you think Jessie J’s video for “Do It Like A Dude” or Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” is the catchier male call-out?
Team Jessie J
Jessie J’s “Do It Like A Dude” – Want a fun fact? Of course you do. Jessie J originally wrote this song with her competitor in mind! That’s right. “Rude Boy” had just been released, and she felt so inspired by Rihanna that she whipped this song up like it was Sunday brunch. Oh, and no big deal, but it’s also the debut single she put out (which did ridiculously well on the charts). I don’t know about you, but I am seriously into Jessie J’s character in this video. She’s got spiky lips and shaky hips (sorry, had to throw in a rhyme) – and she’s looking hot, hot, hot. If there’s “bad girl” in the dictionary, my guess is that a picture from this video is plastered from and center.
Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” – Is Rihanna riding a lion? It sure looks like it. Hmmm, how appropriate considering she’s mind-blowingly fierce in this video. But whether or not she’s really riding wildlife here (spoiler: she’s not!), she’s still an animalistic goddess. Maybe it’s her crazy drum playing. Maybe it’s the pop art color filter. Or maybe it’s just her intense glare that looks through my soul and everyone else who watches the video. Whatever it is, it’s good. Meowww.
