If there’s one thing that the “Dope Bitch” video proves, it’s that a great piano riff is the perfect equalizer. The vibe of the “Dope” video could very easily have come off as decadent, violent, or even threatening with a different musical accompaniment, but because of that dancing-on-its-tippy-toes piano hook, the entire thing is an absolute lark. Fake uzis? Whatever! Copious amounts of cocaine being snorted and rained down on supermodels? What fun! That awful American flag tank top that Busta Rhymes wore to the BET Awards and is maybe like a thing now? If you say so, Terius! We’re too busy shimmying, animated-Snoopy style, to care much anyway.
Seriously, look out for this song the rest of the summer. We know it’s been a while since The-Dream had a hit on his own, and he might be past the Top 40 point of no return, but man…that piano riff. Greater miracles have sprung from less.
