Fabolous‘ single ‘Ready’ featuring Chris Brown is seriously blazing all over the radio waves. The visuals to the song was just released less than a week ago and already has over 2 million views on YouTube. According to Loso, the plot idea was inspired by J. Lo’s ‘Maid in Manhattan.’
During an interview with MTV News, he discusses the video:
“Well the story to me for the record, for the video actually was trying to bring back that feeling when little girls or the little guys were watching the videos and be in awe of them. A lot of videos now have turned to being more guys bragging or trying to look as cool as they can in the video and not really telling that story.”
The video was directed by Taj and filmed on location in the Dominican Republic. The plot of the video follows Loso as he falls for the maid at his hotel. After a sweeping her off her feet, he convinces her to travel back with him to the U.S., a sort of Rags to Riches theme. Sounds kind of like ‘Maid in Manhattan’ doesn’t it?
“That’s where we developed the story, kinda shaped it behind ‘Maid in Manhattan’ with Jennifer Lopez,” Fab explained.
‘Ready’ serves as the lead single from his forthcoming sixth studio album ‘Loso’s Way 2: Rise to Power’ scheduled to be released on June 18.
