Hue Feel Me?

[The Yellow Series]

Colors mean things. Writers use them to describe our feelings. Visual artists use them to reflect moods. We use colors for almost everything. Being artists ourselves, we obsess over colors, and this week we’ve been obsessed with colors particularly in music videos, which brought about our new series "Hue Feel Me?". We’ll be bringing you videos of color, digging back into the golden era of video to keep you inspired. We’re starting off the series with the golden child, Yellow.

Yellow is the color of the mind and the intellect. Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the color psychology of yellow is uplifting and illuminating, giving you feelings of hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. In the meaning of colors, yellow inspires original thought and inquisition. It's no coincidence that yellow correlates to your solar plexus. That third chakra governs self esteem, personal power, and warrior energy. Yellow is creative from a mental aspect, the color of new ideas, helping us to find new ways of doing things. It's the perfect color for inspiration and transformation.

“Sean Paul - I'm Still in Love”

The yellow and orange hues in this video resonate with the lyrics of young love to give feelings of hopefulness to liven up the slightly melancholy beat.


“Gwen Stefani - Great Escape”

Even though it's gold, it's still a yellow hue, and one that makes you feel powerful. Gold gives off Royal and fancy vibes, perfect for the posh-pop lyrics.

"Spree Wilson- Counterfeit"

From the sun dipped clouds roaring in the background to the mustard and melanin babes jamming out in the fore front, this video is so simplistic and so warm. It just feels good. 


"Mariah Carey ft Mase and The Lox - Honey"

The honey lighting in this video makes everything look lush and playful, and also makes us wish we were in it dancing with Mase.

“Destiny’s Child - Bootylicious”

Why not choose yellow for these self-loving lyrics? This song was all about loving your body and knowing you're the ish, and they showed it in the video. We all know that yellow on black girls is EVERYTHING.

“Pharrell- Frontin'”

 *Sigh* this video literally feels like falling in like. It's so warm and soft, like that giggly feeling you get when you're trying not to like someone but they're just SO fine. Is it just us or is everybody glowing?
