[Editor’s Note: Two major trends have emerged in the recent history of new media: 1) Music videos are the new music and 2) YouTube is the new MTV.

Liz has real talent, is able to go far beyond the cliché ‘pop princess’ moniker many might try to assign to recent female pop stars, and is proving that she has authentic staying power to boot. The Mad Decent signee has a new video out, and it’s one you’re going to be bumping up to eleven and (probably) dancing around to in your Nikes and Starter gear pretty soon.
U Over Them is Liz’s newest single, with her last two coming via Mad Decent’s digital imprint Jeffree’s. Take a look.
Liz has that unforgettable late-90’s R&B flavor, with sugary vocals and club happy beat that makes you want to burn the song onto a CD with your PC so you have something to listen to with your top down and the wind in your hair on the way to the beach after school.
For me, it’s all about the awesome, trippy video. The throwback influence obviously doesn’t stop with the song. From Ja-Rule’s floating head to the sea of Beanie Babies and Pokemon backup dancers, I can safely say nostalgia is alive and well in the world of Mad Decent.
