A visually stunning video and a courageously truthful lyric.  Labrinth and Emily Sande deliver an impressive song that is bound to be a smash.

Although this video was released in October, I have just now seen it and am in complete awe.  The only word I can say after watching this video is CHILLS.

Beneath Your Beautiful” touches the soul with its delivery of true love and passion.  It is a tale of going after something you absolutely want, even if it is presumed that it is impossible to obtain. The tune is very similar to Rihanna‘s, “Stay” but much improved.  You can hear the passion seeping through the amazing vocals by Labrinth AND Emily Sande. The ENTIRE video consists of Labrinth on the piano or standing in the foreground with Sande on a giant screen behind him, or Sande in the foreground and Labrinth on the screen.  It is not a huge blockbuster-style music video, but that is why it shines.  You can completely see the passion in both artist’s faces which makes the video completely believable   Not only is the song passionate and beautiful, it is remarkably catchy.  I have been singing “take it off now girl take it off now girl” over and over in my head for the past two days!

Emily Sande is a huge up and comer in the music industry with an immense amount of buzz circulating around her.  Could “Beneath Your Beautiful” top her first popular single “Next To Me”? I think so.

Miley Cyrus- We Can’t Stop Video- Uncomfortably Awesome

The much anticipated video of Miley Cyrus’s ” We Can’t Stop” has officially dropped as of 11 hours ago, and all I can think of is WOW.

WOW for two reasons. 1. Weird. 2. Fantastic

1. Weird.

I am a fan of Miley Cyrus because she stays true to who she is.  She has never pretended she was “innocent” in order to keep her young fans from the wildly popular “Hannah Montana.”  But because I do remember her as a child star this video is a tad uncomfortable.  She takes her new found love “twerking” to a whole new level.  She dances and moves very provocatively and there are many weird visuals like a girl cutting off her fingers, a man eating a money sandwich,  and awkward sexual gestures. However, as uncomfortable as it was, throughout the entire video i was also thinking, “perfection.”

2. Fantastic.

I truly believe that this video is absolutely perfect for this song.  “We Can’t Stop” is a whole new sound for Miley, therefore, the video needed to be completely different than anything she has done before.  The video was incredibly weird, but in a good way.  She shows that she is growing up, but without overdoing it.  She doesn’t show too much skin, she isn’t “grinding” on guys, but she definitely establishes her maturity.  I believe this video will increase the popularity of her single, and possibly even get it placed into the Billboard Hot 100. Only time will tell.
