Twitter was all abuzz today about the video for Goapele's new seduction ballad, "Play," which features ambiguous lyrics sung over a cold, metallic bass line by Mike Aaberg. (Haaaaay.) The video, which is a little racier than Goapele's previous fare ("Milk & Honey" excepted) features a fire eater and a snake. It also has a board-game motif, probably intended to obscure the song's meaning. Don't worry, it's not too literal.
