Well won’t you take a look at this shit….
Kendrick Lamar is making a huge splash in the music industry and recently dropped the visual for his song, Poetic Justice.
If you’ve had a chance to give the video a little looksy, you’ll notice that a very beautiful, dark skinned model named Brittany Sky was the feature. Kendrick made it known that it was all his doing via an interview with Miss Info.
We had another girl for the lead but I had an idea where I just wanted a little bit of a darker tone [girl] in the video. It’s almost like a color blind industry where there’s only one type of appeal to the camera.
I give [Brittany] the credit, too, for just being there, and being a natural, genuine young lady. She wasn’t all in the open, trying to jump in [front] of the camera. She was cool, just chilling. I always kept in the back of my mind like ‘you don’t ever see this tone of a woman in videos. No disrespect, I love all women, period. But at the same time, I still feels like it needs that balance.
Considering that the formula for music videos these days (starting a few years ago) seems to be centered around finding the most exotic woman for the feature, it’s refreshing to know that Kendrick had a vision that included going against the norm and stood by it 100%. Brittany is definitely a looker. Here’s to hoping that his peers follow his lead.
