Jackii Kennedy - Mine

The first thirty seconds of this video are pretty stark; just vocals and guitar, no beats. And all we see is Jackii Kennedy sitting in her car texting. But as the beats drop things start to get very interesting!  As Kennedy drives along we see what appears to be a robot with a heart on its belly. This could only be a metaphor for an unavailable lover. Kennedy appears to interact with the robot on a series of dates and finds it mostly unresponsive aside from dousing her with a cup of liquid at some festivity, obviously a reflection on some public embarrassments. And to process these issues Kennedy gets a whimsical psych session where even her therapist gets in on the act of singing. 

Musically there is a hip hop vibe but dub reggae influence too. At one point you feel as though you are listening in on a big party just behind a door, fitting as the omniscient lyrics warn to be aware of signs of a failing relationship. Jackii says the song is, “...a note to my younger self. If I could go back, I’d want to tell myself ‘...everything is going to be fine.’” It is notable that Kennedy experiences synesthesia, a condition whereby some musicians are able to see the colors of sound. In case you wondered “Mine” sounds like "pink and yellow with splashes of baby blue."
