The “I Got The Boy” music video featuring the beautiful Jana Kramer is as sentimental as they come, and although it’s not perfect, you can’t stop watching. For those who haven’t had the liberty of seeing this music video yet, this is what you can expect.
As the first notes of the music start to play the camera settles on an old box being opened by Kramer. She is sitting in the middle of a semi-empty room, obviously reminiscing about the past. Kramer looks absolutely gorgeous despite her casual attire and she proves why she is the spokesperson for Pure Silk shaving cream. Inside the box are various items, but the most prominent objects have to be the old love letters, given to her by the “boy” she loved several years before.
There are only two transitions the video makes, both of them putting Kramer in more formal clothes and shot in different locations of the house. The last is where she stands on the balcony overlooking a beautiful image of trees and grass covered in snow. The only real connection between the song and the video is the first scene with the box, but other than that it doesn’t really speak to what happens. After the first five seconds or so the viewer expects to see a “younger” Kramer having fun with her boyfriend, followed by the new woman in his life. However, the shot stays on Kramer and in the here-and-now.
Make no mistake, Kramer is great to look at and her acting skills really help to bring out the emotions of the song. But it won’t be far-fetched to think that the video could’ve had more power if more people were used to emphasize the beautiful words. Instead, the director Kristin Barlowe kept things simple, maybe because it’s a different way of bringing attention to the song itself. Kramer and Barlowe have worked together before so they are both probably happy regarding the finished product.
With Kramer’s low, yet sultry voice you’d think she had more albums behind her name, but this single comes from her second album, following a three year gap from her first self-titled release. This could be that her main focus has always been towards television. After participating in various small roles in several well-known shows, One Tree Hill is the show where she settled with a more permanent character.
In terms of this beautiful song, many will be surprised to know that Jamie Lynn Spears had a big hand in writing it along with Tim Nichols and Connie Harrington. Spears initially wanted to keep the song for herself, but in an interview she said it was recorded by the right person. The single is currently making its way up the Billboard Country Chart and nobody can argue why it’s so popular.
Maybe the video could’ve been stronger and maybe there was room for a few extra scenes, but few women look as gorgeous on screen. If there is one country singer who can keep everyone’s attention just by smiling, it’s Jana Kramer.
