J. Cole – “Lights Please” (Video)
The video opens with J. Cole stopping by the apartment of a female. She lets him wearing only a towel. They enter the dwelling, she drops the towel, and makes her way to the shower. Cole briefly looks on from a distance. She exits the shower and rejoins Cole in her bedroom. The two proceed to indulge in a bit of adult recreational fun. The majority of the video centers around the couple’s time together. Additionally, there are solo shots of Cole on a roof and glimpses of him through the peephole of the apartment door. The vision concludes with Cole’s lady friend fast asleep on the bed while he gets dressed and makes a silent exit. All in all, it’s an adequate viewing.
**My Two Cents: I am a huge J. Cole fan. So I am very happy to witness all of his success. He is super talented and deserving. I can’t believe it’s been five years since The Warm Up already though. Man time flies. I wish him many more years of prosperity in the game. On another note, “Lights Please” is my jam just like most other Cole supporters. So I was geeked about the video. I have to say after a five year wait, it was a little underwhelming. It fit the context of the song and all but I feel like Cole could have done so much more. Then on top of that, it’s edited. But I guess it’s better than nothing. Congrats and Happy Anniversary J. Cole! -MinM
