Free Sample (listen/download)
It’s been a while since the site was graced with the presence of local Milwaukee faction BlackWorld Music Group. Thus decided to share their recent release which happens to be the video “Butterflies” by member Big Fab. It is a track off of his Free Sample project that was dropped last year. The single samples a record of the same name by hit R&B songstress Alicia Keys off of her Songs In A Minor LP. Producer and fellow group member B.u. takes the slow tempo piano driven original cut, fuses it with a smooth Hip-Hop foundation, and gives it an alluring rhythm. It’s an excellent rendition of the music. Big Fab steps way outside of his psychotic controversial character and pens a mellow tale of love & longing. It is a very refreshing change of pace. Overall, the fellas nailed this remix on all aspects. Alica Keys would be very impressed.
For the video, Big Fab teamed up with local photographer/videographer Boys Like Britain. She created a vision that follows Fab and his special lady (played by local model Denae Doberstein) during the happier times in their relationship. The scenes unfold like a home movie of sorts as the viewer witnesses the couple: playing basketball, eating ice cream, sharing a drink, laughing & flirting, etc. The couple’s chemistry is incredibly endearing and causes the viewer’s heart to really go out to Fab as he reminisces and pines over the woman he misses. The video concludes with a fleeting shot of the couple sweetly cuddled up on the couch. Overall, this was a beautifully crafted flick.
**My Two Cents: “Butterflies” is one of my all time favorite Alicia Keys songs. So I was excited and a little nervous to hear what Big Fab did with the track (lol). I ended up pleasantly surprised. He tried something really different and it turned out wonderfully. I love what B.u. did with the production too. It’s almost better than the original. And BLB did a spotless job of bringing the record to life. The video was super cute and fun. It captured the essence of being in love to the letter. Definitely a must watch. Two thumbs up to the whole gang on this one. -MinM
