This German Music Video Is Channeling 90s R&B to Perfection

German singer Ace Tee sets the bar high for 2017 cool with her 90s inspired music video for the track, "Bist tu down?"

Bantu knots—check.


Graffiti—check.

Missy Elliott, Janet Jackson and Brandy vibes—check.

90s R&B girl group choreography—check.

Germany's Ace Tee gave us all the fixings for a refreshing take on 90s swag in her music video for "Bist tu down?" featuring German rapper Kwam.e.

The song title translates to "Are you down," and thanks to my older brother who's the German speaker in the family, Ace Tee is singing about a guy she likes and asks him if he's down to hang out and be together.

Pretty straight forward way to shoot your shot, no?

Have a look to see how this song and video is beyond what we need to kick off 2017 with above.
