The video for “Change Clothes” features Jay-Z arriving at a fashion show while models pose on a catwalk. Even though the concept of the video is simple, the lighting contrast makes it highly unique. The video also features several high profile celebrities like Mary J. Blige, Memphis Bleek, Russell Simmons, Kimora Lee Simmons, Beanie Sigel, and talk show host Kelly Ripa.
“Dirt Off Your Shoulder” shows Jay-Z flaunting his trademark baller lifestyle and multiple people blowing off haters. It’s a standard Jay-Z video, however, a thermal filter is applied across everyone towards the end of the video. It’s a refreshing twist from his typical video imagery of him living a grandiose life.
