Too Sheets for the Streets : Raheem Devaughn & Keri Hilson

I don't really care for music videos like I used to. I don't even watch 106 & Park, which is about the only video countdown show still left on the air.  They just don't do it for me like they used to.  Video's hardly match the message of the song these days. (The most popular music often doesn't have a "message", but that's another blog post)  Anyway, two videos in particular have received a lot of attention lately.  Keri Hilson's "The Way You Love Me" and Raheem Devaughn's "She's Single" video.

Keri's video seems to be either a strong HATE it or LOVE it.  I would say the men Love it and the women Hate it, but I've seen some men state their distaste for the video and some women have praised her danced moves.  In my opinion her raunchy dance moves look just like some moves Beyonce does or would do, but Hilson just repeats them "several" times throughout the video.  In other words, I guess Beyonce is a little more discreet with her "pelvis thrust" dance moves.  You know what they say ... a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets ..... this video may have went just a little too sheets for the streets.

Watch Keri Hilson's new video "The Way You Love Me"

DeVaughn's video on the other hand ... has been banned from Youtube for sexual content.  Wow!!  This video is definitely for the bedroom and i guess its too much for the streets... ya know according to Youtube.  Check it out below!  Watch Raheem Devaughn's "She's Single" video

What do you think of these two videos?  Keri Hilson's video still remains on Youtube ... does the double standard apply to this situation or is it just the opposite in the video world?? Is it okay for women to raunch out a video but not the men?  Did Keri and/or Raheem do too much?? 
Should "She's single" be banned from Youtube?



  1. I'm speechless, I see why Raheem Devaughn was banned that was a straight up PORNO! I was completely shocked that someone decided that should be a music video. Keri Hilson was a bit much, that's definitely not something that should be played on 106 & Park for girls to immulate. Good topic! Entertainment has gone WAY to far these days.

  2. I just wanted to see what all of the hype was about. It's a soft-porn video to say the least.

  3. I just watched the Raheem DeVaughn video. I agree it is a bit much, but I don't think it should have been banned from YouTube. It's definitely too much for 106&Park. In my opinion, this video and Maxwell 'Bad Habits' video are on the same level.
