Music Video: B.o.B, ‘Both of Us’ ft. Taylor Swift

The video: Yesterday brought the premiere of the music video for “Both of Us,” the latest single off B.o.B’s sophomore album Strange Clouds. It was shot in Nashville, Tennessee but don’t let the location fool you. This video shows a different side of the city and its people – great examples of gritty, rural Americana. Taylor Swift hanging out at a smoky pool hall is hard to believe but whatever, we’ll take it.

The song: Following the formulas of B.o.B’s singles with Bruno Mars (“Nothin’ on You”) and Hayley Williams (“Airplanes”), “Both of Us” stars a big-name singer belting out an infectious chorus. Swift’s vocals and harmonies are enchanting in this track. Unfortunately for B.o.B it feels like he’s interrupting a Taylor Swift song when he begins to rap. When it comes to his lyrics, I don’t doubt that he’s trying to be earnest. However his message falls pretty short in the originality department – B.o.B is a repeat offender of this. Despite all that, “Both of Us” still has the power to top the charts. T-Swift, don’t break your back because you are definitely carrying this single.

About Camille G.

Camille's passion for music began at the advent of the very illegal Napster, which she maaay or may not have used at the time. This interest made a natural progression into learning and teaching herself how to play various instruments for fun. Due to a lack of actual talent and the desire for job predictability, she graduated from Seton Hall University in nursing. When she has time off from her job as a registered nurse in NJ, she enjoys digging through the internet for new things to listen to. Sharing her discoveries and favorite songs with friends through mix CDs, playlists, blogs, and parties is the part of the music experience she enjoys the most, so this is a great opportunity for her to do just that.
