Astoria’s “Rock Ya Body” Music Video Pushes Creative Limits with Self-Directed AI Technology
Buena Park, California artist Astoria is making waves with his latest single “Rock Ya Body“, which features a sample from Justin Timberlake’s hit song “Rock Your Body”. The track has been described as a timeless west coast banger, and it’s not hard to see why.
Astoria’s performance in the music video for the song is a standout feature. Shot by @kied.is26, the video is visually pleasing and compliments the intimate nature of the song perfectly. Astoria raps directly into the camera, captivating viewers with his raw talent and undeniable charisma which suit the lyrics of the song perfectly.
What’s even more impressive is that the music video was actually self-directed by Astoria himself. In a unique move, he used AI technology to generate his own face and body onto his younger brother, who is the subject of the video, effectively demonstrating how powerful this newly popular technology truly is. This creative approach demonstrates Astoria’s willingness to take risks and showcases his versatility as a true artist.
With “Rock Ya Body”, Astoria has managed to create a song that feels both familiar and fresh. The Justin Timberlake sample adds a nostalgic touch, while Astoria’s unique style and flow breathe new life into the track. His ability to blend elements of old school and new school hip-hop is a testament to his skill as an artist and his deep understanding of the genre.
As a hip-hop journalist, I’m excited to see what Astoria has in store for the future, without a doubt he’s going to be on my radar all 2023. With his talent and willingness to push boundaries, he is undoubtedly an artist to watch. His self-directed music video for “Rock Ya Body” is just the beginning, and I have no doubt that he will continue to impress with his future releases.
