I have a confession: I find Jordin Sparks' new mixtape #ByeFelicia very catchy and "Double Tap," a song that includes the line "If you like what you see then/You gotta let me know/Bet you won't double tap that ho," is my favorite track on it. I have a second confession: the video definitely lives up to the song.
Unfortunately, Sparks decided to team up with Yahoo to promote the track (which features 2 Chainz) because nothing says "double tap that ho" like Yahoo.
"For me in the song, the girl is talking to the guy saying, 'I know you stalk my page. I know you look at the photos. I know that you don't like them. I bet you're not going to like that picture, but I know you like me,'" she told Yahoo. (Shouts to Yahoo!)
“But then you can take it another way as well, like you’re in a relationship with someone,” she continued. “Say we’re sitting next to each other. Say we’re together, right? I’m scrolling through my phone, and I hover over a picture of a really hot guy, and you’re like, ‘I know you’re not about to tap that picture. I know you’re not about to double-tap that picture in front of me.’”
While the song might have two meanings, the video appears to have one theme: love in the digital age.
We start out with Jordin on her bed, taking selfies like you do.
Her male friend likes what he sees.
(Excuse me while we break for Beats.)
Her male friend still likes what he sees.
I like this shirt, which reads, "Whole Lotta Woman."
In this video, Jordin does two unique dance moves that will sweep the nation in 2015: "The Hashtag" and "Double Tap," both of which can be performed using only your fingers.
Her male friend's friends also like what they see.
Pretty soon she goes to this party, where 2 Chainz is performing. A man makes a face like this.
At first, Jordin is too busy having fun with her gal pals to care about 2 Chainz.
But eventually, she joins in on the fun.
And gets the guy in the end.
