Leona's Got You

Backkk!!! :) I am still very much in the mood of celebrating Chinese New Year~ Gong Xi Fa Cai to everyone~ I am very 'xcite about the "compulsory" gambling later with ma gang. I use the term "compulsory" very loosely here. I do not, in any way, promote gambling illegally :)

Back to the music~
Leona's 2nd single, I Got You, from her sophomore album, Echo is out! It's definitely one of the highlights of the album. My previous gush about her pretty much great album here. Here's the video.

Don't you just love her gorgeous eye make-up? I think the video does kinda relate to the song is some way - emotionally. Sadness and hope for Love. I love the ♥ theme in the video. Aww, what a perfect video for all those who celebrate Valentine's day~

BTW, don't you guys think that the video is kinda similar to her Bleeding Love UK Version video too? I mean the theme of her video, wardrobe and atmosphere, eventhough I Got You is pretty much more optimistic. Both her dresses in this I Got You is kinda similar to her Bleeding Love video. The metallic shiny sequin dress here is pretty similar with the metal-like chain dress in Bleeding Love. The 2nd more simple and short Little Black Dress (where she is sitting alone on the floor although the color is a lighter tone of black) is pretty similar to the one that she is wearing where she is grinding the wall in Bleeding Love. LOL. Plus, both the video got fire and water thingy going on. :)

The only diff I can see is her make up and hair~ (not that there is anything wrong)

Here's the lovely Bleeding Love UK version video.

I still love her, don't fix it if it ain't broke.

Love both the videos, Love both the songs.

Both videos are pretty. much. amazing :)

All thanks to J.Mensah's TheBillboardFiles!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks JLS shouldn't have won the Breakthrough Award. Nice roundup, yo! :) And thanks for the mention too!

Do you think Ellie Gouldings upcoming album will be as successful as Duffy's? I was thinking about it today and I'm not so sure.

Everyone is buzzin' about JLS at the mo' esp the part where they are breakin' into the US market with the help of Jay-Z, but seriously, they have 2 decent tracks, I think they need more solid stuffs. "Everybody In Love" is a much better choice than "Beat Again". Since I saw the video in your blog, you deserve all the creds~ ;)

I didn't listen to Duffy's album (I don't find her stuff that appealing even though her singles are great) I am more of a Adele's fan.

About Ellie, I am seriously diggin' all the supposedly leaked tracks. Her wispy ethereal-like voice and "modern pop" style is her strongest quality, I am really anticipating it. I hope I don't get disappointed with it like Sam Sparro's album :(

hey dah dengar Sweet 7 by the Babes?

rcLoy said...

f: Wooi! Mana hilang? Hahaha.. Glad that you are back.

Gotta agree that Spirit is a better album. JLS, oh, JLS. Good luck for their US market venture.

I like P!nk too, Whoknew is one of my faves song, I guess she got under-appreciated for most of the times.

Sweet 7 dah out? I nak baca your review 1st, since this is like the nth time line up change by Sugababes. Not sure whether that's a good thing. Haha
