December 16th, 2020 (my birthday) Big Sean released the visual for the stand out song “Body Language” ft. Jhene Aiko & Ty Dolla $ign from his latest album Detroit 2 that released September 4th, 2020. The visual is a compilation of 90s black rom-com classics but starring the artists in the song. The video presents itself as if it is its own film by starting with a copycat of the Universal intro. We first see my personal favorite film Love Jones as Big Sean raps the song like how Darius Lovehall performed his poem for Nina. Jhene comes in as Nina in the kitchen when Big Sean is cooking breakfast like the moment in the film. We then see Big Sean driving the mail truck like 2Pac in Poetic Justice as he walks into the salon Jhene aka Justice works at. Other classics represented in the video include Waiting to Exhale, Jason’s Lyric, Mo Betta Blues, and The Best Man. My favorite part is when Jhene is in the car talking to her sister who is playing the role of Nina Mosely’s friend Josie about the sex she just had just like the movie. This video shows just how important these iconic films are and how beautiful black love is.
