Last week Alexandra Burke’s video for upcoming single Start Without You premiered. Man, what a disappointment. Ok, the song is just (another) pop song, far from what I expected from her. But it could have been one of the songs of the summer. It’s catchy as hell, fun and it’s got that Caribbean coconut rythm (whatever that means) that makes it the perfect soundtrack to a beach holiday.
Now here come the problems. The song was supposed to be released late August, but for unknown reasons it is now released on September 5. Great. A summer track just when the summer is over and we’re all back to work. Problem number two, the video. I really wasn’t expecting something so… so… bland. Boring. Nothing to do with the song. It’s like sunbathing on a cloudy day, it just doesn’t work!
