When we first heard R&B boyband Pretty Ricky was covering the H-Town classic "Knockin Da Boots" we thought, "Eh, whatever." Then saw the YouTube video of "Knockin Boots 08" over at B Scott and ONTD and thought otherwise. The boys can sing, there's no question about that, although their cover is fairly derivative and too true to the classic. But the visuals are hot, hot, hot.
Lead singer Spectacular continues to live up to his name—at least visually, he's spectacular, and the country grammar is sexy—and new singer 4 Play is hot-ta-def and really can sing, Oh, and the director found multiple camera angles to document every inch of their ripped torsos, and, yes, the boys really do kiss their guns. It's kinda like a porn movie.
For a different pov, B Scott is not impressed and believes Pretty Ricky's cheesy off-air persona (Good Burger/90s fashion/male strippers) is all over the video and the vocals. "They didn’t do it for me on this song! If you are going to redo someone else’s song, please redo the damn thing and make it your own!"
Last year, Pretty Ricky was interviewed by one of the English homostyle mags, Gay Times, AXM or Attitude, can't remember which one. We'll look for the interview
