Mike Posner - Cooler Than Me

Song Info:

"Cooler Than Me" was released by Mike Posner in April of 2010. Since its release it has peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100[1] and reached number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay in its July 31, 2010 issue. The instrumental was produced by Gigamesh. Another version, labeled "Gigamesh Remix", was released on Mike Posner's October 2009 mixtape One Foot Out the Door.

Speaking in August 2010 to noted UK urban writer Pete Lewis - Assistant Editor of Blues & Soul[2] - Posner described the background to the song: "A lotta people don’t know I recorded that song while was still a student, and that I recorded it in my dorm-room on an extremely cheap microphone! So to now be hearing it on the radio in The States and over here is very special for me, knowing that I made it in such a makeshift manner! And while yes, it is about a specific girl in my class I had a crush on - though I’m not gonna tell you her name, because she doesn’t deserve any notoriety! - it’s also about a specific TYPE of girl! Because there are girls like that EVERYWHERE! You know, everybody knows that girl who thinks she’s cooler than them! Which is why I figured I’d just try to capture that moment of feeling snubbed! Because all my songs are either driven by something that’s happened to me, or by something I’ve felt on the inside.”

Music Video Info:

In the music video, Posner starts out at a concert singing some of his songs before an enthusiastic audience. After the show he goes driving with his friends, who then drop him off at the Roosevelt Hotel on Los Angeles' Hollywood Blvd.[3] After a short ride in an elevator, Posner enters a hotel suite, where he joins a party already in progress. The pop channel Fuse deletes the opening scene. Throughout the course of the video, Posner tries on different styles of sunglasses including Oakley Razorblades, Holbrooks, Jupiters, Frogskins, and 3D glasses. While he is trying each pair on, it evokes a different perception of the party currently going on in the apartment. In the end, he is seen leaving the hotel that morning with his original sunglasses back on. The video, directed by Jason Beattie,[4] features cameos by Louie Vito, The Dingo, Chelsea Chanel "CC" Dudley and Christopher Pfaff from Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory.[citation needed]
