Video Review: Jade “I Wanna Love You”

Di, Joi, and Tonya, wearing black outfits with matching masks, break into a home. A young man tells his friend, “peep this out!” as they watch television. Joi takes a diamond from under a glass dome. A second young man pats his friend on the arm and tells him to “check this out!” as he watches television. Di steals a necklace. The second young man grabs a bowl of popcorn. The young man exclaims “girls!”

At home, they high-five one another. They dance on the sidewalk with their boyfriends. Back at home, Tonya holds some money in her hand. Wearing black outfits, they dance on stage. They drive motorcycles in the alley. In black-and-white, they hang onto a fence. Back at home, they drink wine as they dance in the family room. The young men bob their heads as they listen. Di, Joi and Tonya toast one another in the family room. A ring falls in the glass.

Rating: 2/5
