Viral Video or Music Video??

You would think beating up a female pop star that you are dating would be enough to hinder your musical career, right? Thanks to the YouTube viral video hit JK Wedding Entrance Dance , Chris Brown’s year old plus song “Forever” gets a second chance at life … much like his character. The video features a crazy wedding ceremony dance entrance set to Chris Brown’s 2008 song “Forever”.

This video has been passed on to me by several people through email, twitter, and myfacespacebook in the last few weeks. Now the video has over 16 million views, and a link on their YouTube page to allow viewers the option to buy “Forever” on Amazon and iTunes. Now the song is back up to No. 10 on Amazon’s best-selling MP3 list and No. 31 on iTunes Singles.

If music videos are designed to help promote an artist, a song, or an album … then, I think Chris Brown owes Jill and Kevin at least a wedding gift for this viral video hit. The newly married couple has also created a website due to the popularity of the video that allows visitors to make a donation to the Sheila Wellstone Institute, in efforts to end domestic violence in our communities.
