  8. 8. Analysis of Lyrics The lyrics within this song indicate that he is singing to one (possibly a few girls). So this indicates we will need a girl when making our video. He is singing about her/ too her so some contact with the girl (E.g.. Eye contact) will be needed within our shots. In the lyrics he talks about different objects, these may have to be linked in with our video to link the visuals with the lyrics. ‘There is a relationship between lyrics and visuals (either illustrative, amplifying, contradicting’ (Andrew Goodwin), We will have to plan how we will link these up. He repeats a lot of his lyrics, in the video a lot of the similar shots are repeated and dancing etc. which links these two together, this can be interpreted in our own work. The props help the narrative and to create more a story for the audience which will help keep their interest.
  9. 9. Mood board or props, performances After reading and analysing the lyrics, we have been able to point out which props/shots/location we may need to use within our video to link up the visuals with the lyrics, this helps to keep the audience interested and makes them more likely to rewatch the video. Here is a mood board demonstrating which props we may need to use.
  10. 10. Lighting and live performances The lighting in the video is similar throughout. Because of the location (club) The lighting is quite dark with many flash lights with bright highlighting lights on the artists, this makes him bigger and more important in the video. The lighting in the shots outside are dark telling the audience it is night, which makes it more realistic as most parties/clubs happen at night. This lighting is quite relevant to the genre of music as the music is dance, party type music which relates to the dark lighting and setting. In his live performances, he uses similar lighting to give the audience a similar feel as it does in the video. He also uses dancers as he does in the video to give this same affect. He doesn’t use props in his live shows, this may be because he would like to leave a little for the audiences imagination and as many will have seen the video he would like to make it a little different. It would also be to hard to use all the props which were used in the video.

  12. 12. R-Kelly Research History of music career- 1991-4- R-Kelly made his break through when he participated in the TV singing show ‘Big Break’. Within this show, he competed against the likes of Vincent Corey Walker and Shawnth Brooks. After winning this show and being given the winnings of £100,000 he then moved on to creating his first album called Born into the 90's was released in early 1992. after the success of his first album he moved on to release another album called 12 Play, which was his first solo album and was released on November 9, 1993. this album gave him his first number-one hit, "Bump N' Grind”. In the year 2000 he released his 6th album Chocolate Factory. This album was one of his most successful albums, selling over three million copies due to the success of singles such as "Ignition”. In 2011, he was rushed to hospital and was told he was to under go throat surgery. Due to this he had to cancel his performance at the reggae Sumfest in Jamaica, In a statement the organizers said, "Kelly's unforeseen and unavoidable health issues will prevent him from making a scheduled appearance on the music festival.“ His most recent album release was Write Me Back which was released in 2012. this was his 11th studio album, The album reached number 5 on the us billboard 200 and sold 68,000 copies in the first week alone. After this it spent 17 weeks in the charts. In july 2013 he then went on to announce the new release of his album black panties which will feature a single with 2 Chainz.

  14. 14. R-Kelly Research- influences and inspirationAfter researching into R-Kelly, it is found in magazine articles, websites etc. that his influences are other R&B artists, young and old, I found most of this information in the website: http://www.mtv.com/artists/r- kelly/related-artists/?filter=influencedBy. Reading through articles he states his main influence, Michael Jackson who he later performed with. He also mentions other inspirations, E.g.. The film The hurricane. He also talks about how and why he made his albums and what inspired him which is shown through his interviews. I found tis in the interview from the website :http://www.interviewmagazine.com/music/r- kelly/#page3. These techniques will help us to plan and find inspiration for our own video. I plan to research a little into the digipaks, magazine articles of some of R- kelly’s influences to get more of an idea of his thoughts and how they could influence our video a promotional pack. http://www.inte rviewmagazine. com/music/r- kelly/#page3.
