Hot Video Alert: Kaci Battaglia feat. Ludacris - Body Shots
Oh Kaci Battaglia. Where did things go wrong? "Body Shots" was already iffy for me. I was just waiting for the video to come out, HOPING that it would really blow me away, but it just left me wanting more and feeling dirty. Sometimes if I'm on the fence about a song, a good visual aide can really change my mind. This unfortunately is NOT the case with "Body Shots." The budget on this video is SUPER LOW. Minimal set. Sleazy back up dancers. The most expensive thing appearing in this video is rent-a-rapper Ludacris, who plays his part without ANY energy or passion. He basically just stands there while Battaglia dances beside/infront/behind him. What a blah video!
I think with her last single, "Crazy Possessive" we kind of got the impression that she was moving in a more mature popstar direction. Her latest video kind of goes overboard in that regard. "Body Shots" is the second single off Battaglia's forthcoming 4th studio album, Bring It On, her first studio album in 8 years. Right now the song is at #24 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play charts and working it's way up. Seeing how "Crazy Possesive" hit the #1 spot on the dance charts, chances are this new single will do pretty well too. I don't know...I'm still on team Kaci...I'm just a little more cautiously optimistic after this release.
