Even though James Graham won The Four last season, Sharaya J was my favorite performer. I mean, James is great, but Sharaya is something else. Her flows are astounding and her style is aggressive and fun to watch. Now she’s back with her video, Say Less.
“I’m the type of girl to get you out of your seat/Even if you’re good you ain’t better than me” is one of the lines from this song. That’s some fire at all of the people she defeated on The Four. She never was eliminated and everyone who went against her was defeated. Because she’s unbelievable. The video itself harkens back to the Hype Williams heyday of the 90’s. PArticularly, Missy Elliot’s early videos. They even brought back the fish-eye lens. But rather than feeling derivative, it felt like a call back to the past and a look to the future.
If this video is any indication, then we are in for some more treats from Sharaya. She’s a friend of the site and a really decent person. But she is also a fierce hip hop dragon.
