Video Review: The Kid Laroi & Mustard “Still Chose You”

The Kid Laroi stands on the sidewalk at night, an umbrella over his head as lightning strikes. Lit in royal blue, he sits on a chair in room and watches the twentysomething woman on the top television in the stack. Mustard plays the piano as smoke drifts by him.

Wearing sunglasses, Laroi sits on top of the piano. The twentysomething woman holds a white sheet over head against a black background. A glass wall breaks in the room. He dances by the stack of televisions. Lit in crimson red, Mustard and Laroi dance in the room while lightning strikes. As it rains, he stands with the twentysomething woman under the umbrella. Laroi, hair drenched, dances on the sidewalk by himself. She stands with her hand raised, eyes closed on the sidewalk. Her arms around him, she stands behind him against the black background. They dance together.

Rating: 2.5/5

The twentysomething woman smiles as she reads a text from the Kid Laroi. She hadn’t expected him to respond so quickly. There were other girls interested in him and she was lucky to be talking with him at all. He confirmed their fourth date. Even if he ups canceling at the last moment, she knew she made it to an almost relationship with him.

She leans her umbrella against the window and checks her messages. It was the correct time. However, he was late by 15 minutes and still no text from him. She’ll give him an hour. He was probably busy making his next hit song. She couldn’t disturb the process.

Laroi pulls away from a 19-year-old woman and says she’s pretty but he can’t be with her. The 19-year-old exclaims “what?” as he walks away. He rubs his face, unable to believe what he said. Somehow, it would be cheating on the twentysomething woman and the guilt was eating him up inside. He had to see her.
