Gabel Singer Flav has teamed up with Jim Rama. A Konpa and a Zouk sensation teaming up? It’s gotta be fire. Checkout the video below.
The song is called “Mwen Vle Kinbe w” [I Want to Hold You]. In it the two singers (looking very much like brothers, or at the very least cousins), mourn about the two great ladies they’ve lost, and how they long to hold their respective women again. Can I get a podyab?
This is the type of smooth tracks that make the ladies go crazy on the dance floor…so smooth…and so romantic.
And look at Flav Gabel’s hands…in prayer mode. And in the next sequence…
And look at him! He’s dragged his little microphone to the beach just to serenade his girl, and convince her to melt back in his arms.
Aw. Girl, won’t you consider forgiving him before he catches pneumonia? There he goes again…in pleading mode…
Look at the expression on their faces…men really cannot do without women, can they?
Look at that face up close…begging—and pleading.
Finally, the couple is reunited.
She’s looking deep in thoughts.
Ooh, there he goes again.
Serenade from the beach…
Does she hear him or are all his pleadings muffled by those waves? Moral support…
A tip to all the guys out there…when you’re begging and pleading with your girl to come back… Take off your sunglasses. You’ll look more sincere.
Flav Gabel sure had some nice suits for this video.
So, what did you guys think of this video overall? A lot of begging and pleading for a second chance in the verses, but the lyrics never really indicate what the narrator did to cause the separation in the first place, or am I to surmise that it was due to some infidelity issues?
