Alexandra Burke

Postby Javi » 20 Aug 2010, 01:53

I guess it premiered today since the video has just hit Youtube. What do u think?



I think the song is great (although it's not better than Bad Boys, Broken Heels and All Night Long) but the video is cheap, tacky, boring and makes no sense at all. The guys are hot (specially the one with the tattoo on his chest) :love: :love: :love: but they're pointless.



Btw, does anyone know the story behind this video? Because she was shooting a different one in June:



What happened with that video?

I heard she originally shot the hotpants video but it got mainly negative feedback from the record company or something like that so had to shoot a new one quickly.

The video now looks like a mix between 'Single Ladies' and 'Lets Get Physical' :p

I totally love it,I love it when they sample that song,it's sooo sunnery!

I just don't know if it's the right direction for Alexandra,she has a voice for way much betterand "serious" things...

Don't think there's been a reason for why she completely shot the video. Seems strange to scrap a video, and reshoot a completely different concept, and learn different choreography. It's probably the reason why the released version is so cheap looking.

I know that the first thought could be "tacky" and then "cheap" or "trashy" BUT this video could end up being classic and totally iconic. It's simple and it has a certain style that u cannot describe it. It could be her own "Single Ladies' video.

No, it won't. There's nothing classic nor iconic in a bunch of hot guys doing aerobics and lifting weights. This video, released on the 80s, would be iconic and something Madonna would do and storm the world with it... But nowadays it looks just desperate and cheap.

I love the song, but since it leaked months ago I'm already tired of it.

I'm just on my way out but I'll watch later, I heard this song ages ago and didn't think much of it, then heard it again today on the radio at work and loved it, had it playing on youtube over and over since I got it, I love it. Will watch the video when I get in

I love the song, but the video, WUT! She looks nice in it, but the men in it is a cringe moment.

That's exactly what I thought.

But It does look cheap.
