Peter Okoye And Beyonce Are On The Same Brain Wave
Former one half of Psquare, Peter Okoye, is putting together a body of music videos, in what he calls 'Mini Series Music Videos'.
His new 'mini series' is actually a make shift visual album, made popular in recent times by Beyonce.
The two visual albums to her credit — the first for her 2013 release “Beyoncé,” followed by “Lemonade,” in 2016, makes her the undisputed master of the form.
A visual album combines cinematography and visual storytelling, in telling connecting stories, with each video.
Mr P, is presently on a visual album streak, that has a tweak.
He considers each music video to be an episode.
First it was 'Cool It Down', then "My Way", and in an Instagram post, he said that the third episode of his musical series will be unleashed soon.
‘Cool it down’, which is his first official release, samples Mya’s 1999 single, ‘Take me there’, which also features Maze, and Blinky Blink, and was a soundtrack for The Rugrats Movie’.
The second song, ‘My way’, samples its instrumentals from Mario Winans’ ‘I don’t wanna know’, a 2003 song, which features Diddy.
The video for ‘My way’, has Peter sent to a desert by a jilted lover- a concept it borrows from Chris Brown’s ‘Don’t wake me up’ visuals.
Psquare is one group that drew their earlier inspirations from Micheal Jackson, and other popular R&B musicians from the 90's and 2000's, from their choreography to other parts of their stage craft.
They eventually evolved before the split, but with Mr P's new songs, it seems that old habits die hard, as he has gone back to the old formula.
The concept of the visual album or as he calls it 'Mini Series Music Videos' might just help sell his 'market' as a solo artiste.
