The ‘90s were a golden era for Black film and filmmakers. From House Party to The Wood, the decade gave us many classics movies, scenes and performances from some of our favorite actors and actresses. Now we get to relive some of those classic Black movie moments with a couple that has that ‘90s R&B kind of love, Big Sean and Jhené Aiko. In the music video for his single “Body Language,” which also features Ty Dolla $ign, the duo reenacts scenes from a few of our favorite ‘90s flicks.
The clip opens with a play on the Universal Studios logo before we see Sean step up on a dark stage to recite a poem, serving us Darius Lovehall in Love Jones realness as he actually spits the song’s lyrics. The clip then switches gears to a scene from Poetic Justice, with Sean riding in a mail truck making a delivery to Jhené’s beauty salon, taking on the roles of Tupac and Janet Jackson respectively. From there, we get their spin on scenes from Waiting To Exhale, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Mo’ Better Blues and The Best Man. What makes the visual work so well is real-life lovers Big Sean and Jhené’s smoldering chemistry as they take on all the different characters.
This isn’t the first time Big Sean has looked back to the ‘90s for visual inspiration, with his video for “Play No Games” featuring Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign recreating the hit sitcom Martin. With these two videos giving us our ’90s life, we can’t wait to see what Big Sean decides to visually flip next from the decade.
