Dave East’s been celebrating a solid year so far. All the work that he’s put in over the past few years finally came into fruition when he dropped his major label debut Paranoia: A True Story. The project was well received by his fans and peers and showed progression in his artistry. While he didn’t sell his music short by dropping a project filled with radio hits, he still managed to keep one or two in the track list. The Chris Brown assisted “Perfect” was all over the radio this summer and today, he finally unleashes the video for the song.
Throughout the video, East is seen trying to fight off temptation of the beautiful women that surround him. East spends the majority of the video blind-folded while getting a lap dance. Pretty much living the dream. Meanwhile, Chris Brown showcases his dance moves, as to be expected. “Perfect” serves as the second video off of Paranoia. However, the single was bumping all throughout August since it’s release in late July. It’s a solid video from East and hopefully will not be the last one we get off of the EP. The video was directed by Arrad who has worked with Chris Brown in the past for the video for “Pills and Automobiles.”
Aside from the video, East recently confirmed that he’s gearing up to deliver the sequel to Paranoia in the near future. In an interview with Montreality, the rapper revealed that he’s planning on dropping Paranoia 2 before Halloween. “Paranoia 2 on the way. I’m about to hit ’em back to back.” East said, “Probably before Halloween, I’ma come with another one. One more EP and then [it’s] album time.” Hopefully, he keeps to his word. However, Paranoia is still getting some steady rotation since it’s release in August.
