New Video: Trina feat. K. Michelle – If It Ain’t Me


Trina and K. Michelle fight back in the video for their brand new collaborative single, “If It Ain’t Me.”

The sexy R&B/Rap song is the latest single off Trina’s forthcoming album. In the Michael Garcia-directed video, the female rap star’s boyfriend (played by Dave East) isn’t remaining faithful when he’s out of town. The rapper is seen getting way too cozy with dancers at a strip club.

“Who you lovin’ when I go out on the tour? / Bring back a check, I bet that bitch is such a bore,” raps Trina. “Who you lovin’, who you wanna be f***in’? / I got ni**a groupies at me, but my vibrator buzzin’.”

K. Michelle shows up as the ride-or-die best friend, helping Trina through the heartache. “Somebody loves ya baby / And you know who it is, you know who it is / If it ain’t me then who?,” sings K.

She also adds the third verse addressing a petty dude who she left in the dust. “No more love, I’m wasted / Jack Daniels my baby / Pour it in my cup, forgot about you already,” she sings. “Ain’t no coming back to this / I just packed up my sh*t / Petty ni**as is the worst / I ain’t got time to be hurt.”

John Legend Surefire Remix

As he gets ready to close out his “Darkness and Light Tour,” John Legend debuts a remix pack for his current single “Surefire.”

The first new version is a stripped down piano based remix, which removes the guitar and drums of the original. John’s style always fits well over simple keys, and he shines here as expected.

The second remix is by acclaimed Swedish composer Ludwig Goransson (Chance the Rapper, Childish Gambino), which is also piano based but adds some additional sounds and vocal coos.

Last month, John Legend released the cinematic short-film style music video for “Surefire.” The endearing visuals showcase the power of love and unity with a socio-political theme as two young lovers, from different backgrounds, are torn apart and must travel out of their comfort zone to reunite.
