MUSIC: Velous – Larger Than Life

by Reginald Duvivier


Last time we saw baby faced Velous he was he proved acting isn’t his strong suit in his video for “Pretty Girls.” It wasn’t necessarily a bad song but pretty middle of the road R&B and a tad forgettable. But something about him made us think he could do better…

He has with his new song, “Larger Then Life”, his next clip for Velocity (note: death to puns in album titles). Not to say it breaks any new molds, particularly with lyrics like “We gonna do it big, shutting down the mall”, but the chorus is pretty great. Sounding like The Dream at his best it reminds us of the time where we would dedicate songs to girls in elementary school before we turned into cynical teenagers.
