Keep it comin’, you guys!
As Sevyn Streeter’s sensual new video for “It Won’t Stop” featuring Chris Brown neared its end, we found ourselves wishing it actually wouldn’t stop. An almost five-minute West Coast fantasy, the Brown-directed clip intersperses stunning beachfront scenes of Sevyn and her onscreen love interest (played by Dorell Wright of the Portland Trail Blazers) with an after-dark bonfire hangout straight outta “The O.C.” — minus the aggro Luke bros.
Visually, “It Won’t Stop” mixes the unbridled beach passion of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” with the adorable chemistry of Nelly and Kelly Rowland’s “Dilemma.” Throw on top of all that the fact that Sevyn wears some insanely terrain-inappropriate 4- to 5-inch heels on the sand, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a video.
Commitment to the lewk.
Watch Sevyn Streeter’s “It Won’t Stop” video featuring Chris Brown after the jump.
There are also a couple of shots of the “I Like It” singer in #AllWhiteEverything standing atop a white platform with a blue backdrop where she and her backup dancers slither around like some kind of downtempo choreographed dream. Hey, anything that simultaneously alludes to the visuals of Britney Spears’ “Work Bitch” and Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat” — however unintentionally — is always OK by us.
Such a vision, this angel!
But, back to the most important part of the video: THE MEN. Chris’ tight harmonizing on the “And it won’t stop/ Boom boom/ Ooooooo” lyric that punctuates the video has us wishing we were around a sing-along-friendly bonfire right now. And super babe Dorell Wright? (No joke, we almost just wrote “Hunk” instead of “Wright.” NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE SAME WORD.) He literally drives up to Sevyn on the beach in an open-air Jeep like a 21st-century knight in shining armor. Like, somebody fetch our smelling salts, because #SWOON.
Well, we found our Christmas card this year!
