Video Analysis - Sexy Chick by Akon feat David Guetta
As you can see, the album cover is just words so it gives no narrative to the song and only the wording can give you an idea of what the song may be about. However, it does have some key lyrics on the album itself, that being ‘Sexy Bitch’ or ‘Sexy Chick’ for the non explicit version of the song, still performed by the same people just having the words edited and changed.I also associate the colours of black andwhite to be fairly neutral colours and don’texpress a outgoing lively feeling, howeverthe font of the writing shows that this songis going to be upbeat and a party anthem,the pink reinforces this as pink is a whackycolour, especially as it is bright and eyecatching.

The use of lots great time.of dancing women also backs up the title of the song‘Sexy Bitch’.
Here you can see that the song is conventional by seeing both the artists performing together in the same club and you would associate this song with a clubbing type of atmosphere. You can see that they are collaborative as well in this picture.In this picture you can see thatDavid Guetta is the DJ and Akonis the Singer.You can see that they are having agood time and they are makingthe audience have a good timetoo.
Amplification – You can always see woman dancing with minimal clothing or swimwear and this is constantly repeated. Illustration – You hear Akon say ‘ Damn you’re a sexy chick’ and you can see attractive looking women in the shot. Focusing on the girl to show her attractiveness. He also says ‘They say she low down’ and you can clearly see Akon bent down and showing with his hands that she is low down.Disjuncture – Akon says ‘She’snothing like a girl you’ve ever seenbefore’ This clearly has no relationto a picture of Akon walking alonga corridor by himslef.
Akon and David Guetta by themselvesand combined are both commercialexhibitionists. Stylish to have a big watchDavid Guetta has a typical Akon is dressed in a stereotypical R&BDJ style in dress. He wears manner in the way that he is dressedsunglasses with a large in a nice white shirt, very stylish, this is reinforced by the amount of womanwatch to show his wealth around him because they are findingwith a casual t-shirt and him attractive. Many people inspire tojeans. Relaxed but a be like him even if they are notrecognisable person. pursuing a career in R&B music or any form of music, it shows the impact he has.
