Checking in on Monsieur Nov in 2014

Okay, first I saw this vid and to be honest; I dig it. The track is nice, the vid is old school - singing to a girl while walking. Can't go wrong with a classic (lyrics here).



And then....

  1. Wait! Did that say my hoe? I wish they would stop following America and the course in which music is playing today, cause the mainstream music is all jack up with misogynistic crap.

  2. In "My Hoe" it's about a one night stand that went bad. What I don't understand is why he doesn't say (or show) why she got pissed off and mad at him all of a sudden. Is she crazy or he's being an asshole? Well, the end of the video is like WTF, don't know if she shot him in the head or just started messing with his life in a controlling way. Dunno if it's ironical, like who's the real whore here, or if it's just making promiscuous women look like scary creatures as in "she's not only a whore but a psycho too".

    Now I see that he's trying a sound that is more recent, American mainstream, probably expanding his fanbase overseas with English titles for his songs. And that's fine, but not using certain words, come on.
    He might do it for easy views on youtube, but still.

      Good point.

      You know, I wondered about that too? Like if this is a "marketing" ploy.

  3. LOL...did anyone else notice that after she pointed the gun at his head, he still kept singing softly, "My hoe, my hoe, my hoe...."

    1. Which means that if she shot him, she was justified.

    2. For a minute there, I actually wondered if that was why she was shooting him. Like she was saying, "I ain't yo' damn hoe - stop calling me that!!!"

  4. Also came across one of Monsieur Nov's newest videos, please note this is not really safe for work, but can be seen here: generations.fr/son/nouveaute/28237/monsieur-nov-a-deux-doigts. I have no words, part of me is intrigued and happy because there's a full figured POC in the video, but the other half is just down right pissed off. I didn't have a lot of success with Google on the lyrics and I don't speak French well enough to understand what he's saying, but the title translates to: "A Two fingers" or "A Two Digits". Yeah, chew on that a bit.

    1. Thanks for the share. Can't we get name?

    2. It's two fingers. It's an expression in French kinda like when we say "By the skin of my teeth". Like he was really close to something but it didn't happen.

  5. Ugh ! Now what was this? While my comprehension of French is pretty limited, the idea of this woman walking down an isolated road ,talking off some of her clothes and Monseuir singer singing about Two Fingers, you get the idea of what hr want to use his two fingers for. I wish this song was more about love and romance.
