Video Review: Tevin Campbell “I’m Ready”

In black-and-white, Tevin Campbell sits on a wooden fence. A young woman walks in the snow by the forest. She rests her head on his shoulder as it snows. He walks in the snow. They walk in the snow together.

She stares ahead as he walks towards her in the snow. He leans against a tree in the forest. They have a snowball fight. She leans against the tree as they talk. She puts her hand in his as they sit on the wooden fence.

Rating: 4/5

Tevin Campbell fiddles his thumbs as he sits on the wooden fence. His girlfriend wants to slow things down. She’s going to be leaving for college soon and thinks they need to break up. He believed they had until the summer. However, she was accepted early into college and would be graduating in December.

On the ski trip, he had a planned romantic evening with her. However, since she had told him the news, he couldn’t look her in the eye. He was proud of her, though. She had worked hard throughout school and wanted to go to a top-tier college. He had to remind her every so often to be a teenager and go to a party on a Saturday night or a football game. She had gotten him to buckle down and study. During their two years together, he had gone from an average student to being a member of the National Honors Society.

He tells her he doesn’t want to let go yet. Christmas is coming up in a few weeks and his family would like to have their chance to say goodbye to her. She touches her chest and says she wouldn’t miss her mom burning the rolls. He grins and says it’s a tradition she can’t miss. She says she wishes they had longer. He puts his arm around her and says she’ll always be his girl.
