Video Review: G-Eazy & Kehlani "Good Life"

The camera pans over the New York City skyline. A single car drives on the Brooklyn Bridge. In a parking garage, Kehlani holds her hands in prayer. In crimson light, she touches her face.

At night, lit in teal light, Kehlani dances in the parking garage. G-Eazy hangs outside at a party.

From the film, Dom’s (Vin Diesel) enter the warehouse, stored with cars. Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) is amazed. Tej (Ludacris) picks out his car.

Still at night, G-Eazy stands in the street as a car does a figure eight around him.

Roman (Tyrese) races his car against Tej in the clip while G-Eazy raises his cup to a Kehlani in the crowd. Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) changes gears while driving in the clip.

The sun sets on the Statue of Liberty.  Luke (Dwayne Johnson) scoffs. Dom and Letty smile at one another. From the passenger side of the car, Dom looks at Letty while she puts a handkerchief over her mouth. A woman kneels on the ground, signaling the start of the race.

Two dancers join Kehlani in the parking garage.

At the party, G-Eazy laughs into Kehlani’s shoulder. A man barbecues hot dogs on the grill. Eric (Scott Eastwood) claps while sitting at the picnic table.

In the teal light, G-Eazy walks between the empty spaces in the parking garage.

Tej takes Ramsey out in her first race. Two cars are neck-and-neck as they speed through the city.

Underneath cornsilk sunlight, G-Eazy and Kehlani hang out on the rooftop of an apartment.

A car passes another in Times Square.

Dom holds a child up in his arms while Letty looks on, proud of her husband.

G-Eazy dusts off his golden watch and does the same for Kehlani.

Eric changes gears as a row of cars drive by the docks. Dom and Letty walk away from the crowd, his arms around her shoulders.

G-Eazy and Kehlani stand together on top of the rooftop.

Rating: 3.5/5

The history and years of friendship between the characters have become the central story of The Fast and Furious series. The souped-up cars and stealing is only part of it. Roman and Tej pop up and then return to back to their lives. Dom and Letty have fallen for each other, separated and then gotten back together. Ramsey has joined the group while Hobbs has become a mainstay.

Even though an effort is made to incorporate G-Eazy and Kehlani into the action, they remain interlopers. They have heard about Dom’s group and attend the parties. However, it’s through about a dozen mutual friends. They won’t ever get inside the impenetrable inner circle.
