Described variously as “grown and sexy” (Vibe), “sultry” (Rolling Stone), and “Seductive”, by Revolt, the video for Wyclef Jean’s newest release was announced on Twitter by the man himself with his own warning, that “this song will make you ‘make love all night.’ I am not responsible for 2am texts to your ex.” Inspired by Marvin Gaye, it’s definitely one which will appeal to everyone, with a level of swagger and style achieved by very few artists.
Wyclef has been on a diverse promotional drive since the release of his album last month, ‘Carnival III: Fall and Rise of a Refugee’. He’s taken his promo from performing as Grand Marshal at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, followed shortly after with a TED Talk in New Jersey. A VH1 Save the Music performance, and Grammy Museum opening day presentation serve as solid reminders of the massive clout he brings with him everywhere he goes. He also showed his benevolent side by participating in the Global Citizens Forum in Montenegro in mid-October.
Wyclef’s previous video, for ‘What Happened To Love’. was all about fun and partying. ‘Turn Me Good’, on the other hand, is like the after party. Set in a dark and smokey jazz club, Wyclef is behind the mic, serenading the inhabitants of a sepia-toned room, with a group of dancers alongside him. Wyclef proclaims his love and affection for his lover, which sees a secondary narrative play out, one which shows Wyclef and his girl cruising the town in a Porsche stretch limo fit for a king.
