Tujamo Drops Fifty Shades Inspired Video for New Song, "Make U Love Me"
The noir aesthetic for which the Fifty Shades of Grey series is known has proved to be infectious since the first movie’s release, and has only grown increasingly influential since the series’ release of the second film installment, “Fifty Shades Darker.” Imitations of the series’ sultry presentational qualities have cropped up just about everywhere imaginable, including Tujamo’s music video for his most recent release, “Make U Love Me,” a track appropriately published to YouTube just before Valentine’s Day on February 13th.
The newest release from the Spinnin’ Records signed DJ/producer is a clear adaptation of the seductive, BDSM style romance so closely associated with the Fifty Shades Brand, as evidenced by the song’s video. The videography presented in a black and white filter, the colorless opening scenes of the “Make U Love Me” music video are punctuated by steamy Technicolor romance scenes where conventions of BDSM—bondage, specifically—quite literally come to life as the black/white of the video’s beginning transitions to flashes of vibrancy. The song’s lyrics serve as accessories to the video scenes, appearing demurely as the sex appeal of the video amplifies with each drop.
“Make U Love Me” bears a deeper sound than is characteristic of classic Tujamo tracks like the bass heavy “Booty Bounce,” or the trumpet ridden “Drop That Low (When I Dip)," yet shows glimmers of the pumping electro house sound that has served as Tujamo's specialty in its drops. The only wonder? That the song didn't make the Fifty Shades Darker Soundtrack
