Tyra Banks, look at what you’ve done. Just what the world needs, another reality star turned pop star. I knew the second Tyrant made the girls write their own songs and film an accompanying music video, it would ignite a few of their inner pop stars to come out. On cue, Dominique Reighard released her debut single and music video the day after the episode aired. Making matters worse… I actually don’t mind it. Dare I even say, I like it. UGH.
First off, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Girlfriend looks gorgeous in the video and the picture above. That’s one weave blow out that both RuPaul and Beyonce would be jealous of. FIERCE. On ANTM, the judges coined her Jayloncé (J. Lo & Beyonce) and that description couldn’t be any more appropriate, especially once you see the clip.
Photographer Derek Blanks makes his directing debut with Dominique’s “On Top Of The World“. It’s only fitting he directed it, since he appeared in an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” during the “alter ego” photo shoot. That Bravo show gave birth to “Tardy For The Party“, which allowed every reality star to think they also can have a successful novelty single.
Dominique Reighard “On Top Of The World” Music Video
Shot in Atlanta, Georgia, the visual odyssey is the perfect compliment for Dominique’s bass heavy pop track. Props go to Reighard for including a few Top Model jabs in the clip. There’s even a scene where faux Tyra (Dominique) shaves off faux Nigel’s hair. ANTM’s old intro asked, “who’s on top?“. In this case, it’s Dominique. Check out her debut music video below.
Not bad right? I hate to encourage more reality star singles, but this one is a valiant effort. Who knew the girl could sing? Fair enough, it’s auto-tuned but so are half the songs hitting radio these days. Post all your thoughts below.
