Young Paris Needs Ur Back Up Off the Wall
Damn—this video is a smooth, well-executed take on the “dance robot needs you to dance” trick. Young Paris is an artist who works at the interesting intersection of EDM and rap, and if this video is any guide, it’s interesting stuff. “Get Ur Back” fits neatly into the tradition of emotionally flat vocalists using the strength of the song’s production and repetition to make a banger, reminiscent of Zebra Katz’s “Ima Read” and many others. And the video itself has a well-curated cast of diverse dancers to further the compulsion on a visual level, especially the trio in the video’s second half.
